Making A Payment

Direct Debit issues

Your bank will inform Epic if your payment through Direct Debit was not successful. We will send you an SMS to inform you of this, after which you should:

1 Make a manual payment through our website, Internet Banking or at a store, within 7 days to avoid suspension of your line.

Other methods of payment issues

Online Payment: Our website and Epic App will display an Unsuccessful Payment message if your payment does not go through. If this is the case, please check that you are entering your bank card details correctly.
