The fee used to be 1% on amounts up to $5,000, and 0.7% on any remaining amount over $5,000.

The new pricing will be:

  • $1.25 + 0.75% for direct debit and debit cards,

  • $1.25 + 2.45% for credit cards.

Borderless pricing

There are new prices for topping up your borderless account and converting from USD to NZD too. It now costs 0.60% to convert your dollars and NZ$1 to withdraw them into another bank account. To top up your borderless account, the fees are now:

  • 0.15% for direct debit or debit card,
  • 1.85% for credit cards,
  • Free for bank transfers.
