Minimising Your Fees
Here at ECU we are dedicated to ensuring our Members are aware of the many options available to avoid paying fees.
To make things easier for you, we have compiled some guidelines to help you keep your fees to a minimum.
Use selected ATMs to avoid Direct Charges
Members have access to one of the largest network of ATM's in Australia as part of our arrangement with Westpac. The following ATM's will not add a Direct charge to your withdrawl: Westpac, St George, BankSA, Bank of Melbourne and any ATM located at an ECU or Queensland Country Branded ATM’s.
To locate one of these ATM's you can:
Visit www.ecu.com.au and use the easy ATM finder, find them on the ecuapp or contact your nearest ECU branch.
If you need cash, withdraw cash using EFTPOS while shopping, this avoids the need to use an ATM and saves time. If you do not require cash out, select the CR/"Credit" button on the EFTPOS machine, or use Paywave, these are free transactions.
Pay your bills electronically
Using eTeller Internet Banking, ecuapp or Telelink Telephone Banking, you have the ability to pay any bill electronically using our BPAY facility. Any BPAY transaction made on eTeller or Telelink where the "Pay Now" option is selected is free.
Use eTeller Internet Banking and Telelink Telephone Banking
Internal Transfers between your own accounts/memberships, External Transfers to other Financial Institutions and BPAYs are all free on e-Teller, ecuapp and Telelink when the "Pay Now" option is selected. You can also easily retrieve your balances from either. We recommend taking advantage of these services in any way possible.
