What if my Next Generation product is faulty?
Your Next Generation product shouldn’t be faulty. Let’s remedy this! It could be a simple fix, so make sure you try the below first:
- Confirm that you have downloaded the frank green Pay App and completed the registration process. During these steps you will connect your product to the frank green Pay App.
- Confirm the product is associated to your App.
- Open the App and under ‘Managed by Devices’, check to see that the serial number in the App matches your product (the serial number can be found by looking inside at the base of your product).
- If there is no product in your app, connect the smart product to the App using the “Add Device” option found under the “Manage smart payment devices” function found on the home screen in the app. - simply scan the smart product QR code (you can find this in the base of your smart product).
- Check that your smart product is not set to ‘inactive’. This status can be found under the ‘Manage smart payment devices’ function found on the home screen in the Zpp
- Check you have sufficient available funds (this will need to exceed the transaction you are trying to complete).
If none of this works, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your product’s QR code or call frank green on +61 (0) 3 9690 6877 during 9am to 5pm AEST and our team will assist you.

How long will my frank green keep liquids hot?
Like all good things in life, when you start with quality materials and focus on precise craftsmanship, you’re ahead of the rest. We’ve conducted rigorous, independent testing of our products and their hot and cold retention:
- Original and Next Generation - It’s difficult to give an exact timeframe as it depends on your drink of choice. Our products have a double-walled thermo outer layer that keeps your hot drink, well… hotter for longer. More than the average cup. We know this because we’ve done testing with comparative products in the market.
- Stainless Steel Range – The Stainless Steel range will keep your hot beverages hot and your cold beverages cold for up to 10 hours –check out the below graph for the details:
Will my frank green sweat?
The Original, Next Generation and Stainless Steel ranges are double-walled, meaning there will be no condensation on the base (say goodbye to water stains on your coffee table!).
The Original and Next Generation Reusable Bottle bases may sweat and there may also be some lid condensation across the range when the outside environment contrasts the temperate of the liquids inside your reusable cup and bottle.
How do I clean my frank green?
- Lid - The frank green lid is dishwasher safe and we recommend running through your daily cycle to get the best clean. Simply pop the lid into the open position, upside down on the top shelf of your dishwasher. For a more thorough clean every now and again, you can also disassemble your lid and wash in warm, soapy water.
- Original Base –The Original base is dishwasher safe and we recommend running through your daily cycle to get the best clean. Simply pop upside down on the top shelf of your dishwasher.
- Next Generation Base -The Next Generation base is dishwasher safe and we recommend running through your daily cycle to get the best clean. Simply pop upside down on the top shelf of your dishwasher.
- Stainless Steel Base –The Stainless Steel base is NOT dishwasher safe. To clean your base, we recommend washing the base in warm, soapy water and air drying completely with the lid off, upside down.
Can I freeze my frank green?
Popping your Reusable Cup and Bottle in the freezer can damage the product and will void any manufacturer’s warranty, so we advise against doing so.
If you’re looking for a product that will keep your favourite beverage cold, we recommend our Stainless Steel Range – the vacuum insulated, double-wall construction will keep any cold beverage cold for up to 10 hours!
Can I microwave my frank green cup?
- Original Reusable Cup— The cup is microwave safe, but the lid isn’t.
- Next Generation Reusable Cup— This cup isn’t microwave safe. Not the lid, not the base.
- Stainless Steel Reusable Cup – This cup isn’t microwave safe. Not the lid, not the base.
If you’re looking for a product that will keep your morning coffee piping hot, we recommend our Stainless Steel Range – the vacuum insulated, double-wall construction will keep any hot beverage hot for up to 10 hours. For best results we would recommend you fill your stainless steel with hot water before use to bring the walls up to temperature.

How do I remove stains from my Reusable Cup?
The inside of your Reusable Cup is stain and odour resistant.
If you've got a coffee stain on the outside of your Original or Next Generation Reusable Cup, you can try scrubbing the stain with detergent, soaking it in soapy water, or popping it in the dishwasher for a thorough wash. It might take a few washes to remove the stain.
For tough stains, we would recommend soaking over night in a bicarb mixture.
If you've got a stain on your Stainless Steel Reusable Cup or Bottle, rub gently with a soft cloth and some warm, soapy water.
Why is my Reusable Cup or Bottle leaking?
Your Reusable Cup or Bottle shouldn’t be leaking! Let’s get this sorted out for you.
We'd first suggest double checking that the liquid isn't filled over the max fill line as this is the most common cause of leakage. Another suggestion is that after pouring hot liquid into your cup, keep your lid off for a moment to allow the steam to escape before screwing on tightly. In some instances, the pressure of steam can cause liquid to rise up and over the lid of the base, which can cause leakage.
Another alternative is that something may have come loose in the lid, in which case a lid reassembly can often help to fix.
Still leaking? No problem. Get your phone out, take a short video of the issue then contact us for support.
How do I assemble my lid?
We’ve created the below video that steps you through assembling your frank green lid. Take a look. It’s quick. It’s easy. You’ll be sipping in no time.
