MONTHLY AUTOPAY 

This pandemic has changed our world.  As a business we have been encouraged to move towards contactless payment.   Continuous lockdowns have pushed us to find better efficiencies.  The Dance Collective has found a solution - Monthly AutoPay for class fees.

HOW IT WORKS

We operate classes within the school term dates with fees charged monthly in advance.  Our system calculates (prorates) the number of classes TDC actually runs taking into consideration school and public holidays, studio closure dates (e.g. concert) and any extra days in the month.

Upon initial enrolment, you will need to add a payment method - bank details (preferred) or credit/debit card.  Fees will then be charged immediately for that month.  Ongoing, a statement will be sent on the 23rd of each month for the next month’s fees. On the 1st day of each month payments will be automatically taken using our secure gateway IntegraPay.

As a minimum you will be required to commit to a two-month period.   Your placement in class will continue until the end of the year.  No re-enrolments are necessary.   You may cancel your placement at anytime as long as we have 14 days written notice prior to the next AutoPay.

We will send you a statement on the 23rd of each month plus a friendly reminder via the TDC app a few days before your AutoPay date.   You can then check your TDC account balance and make sure you have enough funds to avoid the $10 declined payment fee.    

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT DOES PRORATE MEAN?

Prorate means you are only charged for the number of classes TDC operates that month.  We consider school holidays, public holidays, studio closure dates and extra days in the month. 

DO I HAVE TO RE-ENROL NEXT TERM?

No.   Your placement in your class continues until the end of the year, unless you cancel at least 14 days before the next AutoPay date (1st of the month).

HOW DO I CANCEL OR DROP MY CLASS?

A dancer may opt out of a class as long as a written request has been given by the 15th of the month prior.  TDC will cancel the Monthly AutoPay and the dancer will be dropped from the class.  A dancer can re-enrol again permitting space is available in that class.  Open the TDC app, click the "Update My Classes" link and request to cancel your class(es).  Alternatively send an email to admin@thedancecollective.com.au.

WHAT IF LOCKDOWN HAPPENS & WE HAVE ALREADY PAID FOR CLASS?

Lockdowns are hitting TDC hard. So far when there’s been a closure we have given class credits as lockdowns have been short.  In the future we may continue classes online (as per our terms and conditions) or possibly give credits again.  It will be at the discretion of TDC.  

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY PAYMENT DECLINES?

You will be sent an email notifying you of your declined payment.  We will attempt to charge you 3 days later and again 3 days after that.   After the third decline, your placement at TDC will be dropped and you will be unable to attend classes until full payment has been made.  Each declined payment will incur a $10 fee.  

WHY DOES MY ACCOUNT SHOW A NEGATIVE BALANCE?  E.G -$48.00

You have a credit.   This may happen due to Covid lockdown refund credits.

CAN I PAY FOR MY FEES UPFRONT EACH TERM?

Although we would prefer Monthly AutoPay we do understand some like to pay in advance for the term.

At any time you can go into your account and "Pay Now".  By making a payment you will put your account in credit.   You can calculate yourself how much credit to put into your account based on the number of classes you do times the number of weeks in the term.   Any portion unused will go towards future fees.

I WOULD PREFER TO MANUALLY PAY ONLINE RATHER THAN IT BE AUTOMATIC.  IS THIS POSSIBLE?

We will post monthly class fees in advance and email account statements on the 23rd of the month prior.  This gives you a week to go to the Client Portal and make manual payment if you wish.  Alternatively, sit back, relax and allow Monthly AutoPay to deduct your fees from your nominated payment method on the 1st of the month.   If you have already made manual payment or there is a credit, there will be no fees deducted from your account on the 1st of the month.

HOW & WHEN DO WE PAY FOR PRODUCTION FEES?

Monthly AutoPay will collect Junior Showcase fees on 1 September and Teen & Senior Concert fees will split between 1 November and 1 December.   You will see these fees appear on your statement which will arrive on the 23rd of the month prior.
