Why hasn’t my Direct Debit gone through?

If your Direct Debit didn’t work it could be because:


    • There were insufficient funds in your account;
    • There was a problem with your bank;
    • Your Direct Debit arrangement was suspended; or
    • You had an overdue balance or your bill may not have been at $0 because you received:
      • a late payment fee; or
      • a credit from Telstra


How do I get Direct Debit working again?

Sign in to Telstra 24x7 My Account and check your current balance. If any of the above problems have occurred, you need to return your account to a $0 balance by using one of our alternative payment methods.


Why can’t I register for Direct Debit? 

If you can’t complete your direct debit registration, first check that you entered your Telstra account number and your chosen payment method details correctly. Then re-submit your request.


Why haven’t I received confirmation of my registration? 

If you completed your Direct Debit registration but you haven’t received a confirmation email, please check your spam or junk mail folders.


If you registered via Telstra 24x7 My Account or the Telstra 24x7® App, please check to ensure your direct debit details have been saved. 


If you didn’t register your direct debit using these methods, then contact us to confirm that your direct debit request has been registered.

I have had direct debit set for 5 months, and in the 1st 2 months, telstra completed 2 payments from it.In first 4 payments. But now for some reason, Telstra still missed 3 payments from the direct debit account on file, due to lazy administration department.
