  1. BPAY® reload fee: 1% of the reload amount which will be deducted from your reload amount. For example, a reload of AUD500 attracts a fee of 1% (AUD500 x 1% = AUD5). The amount of your reload will therefore be AUD495. This fee is set and charged by MasterCard Prepaid.
  2. Some ATM operators may charge their own fee
  3. Domestic ATM withdrawal fee: 2.95% of the amount withdrawn charged at the time when you use your Card to make a withdrawal from ATMs in Australia. For example, if you withdraw AUD200 from an ATM in Australia it will attract a fee of AUD5.90 (AUD200 x $2.95%).
