frank green Pay
What is frank green Pay?
frank green Pay is an App that enables the Next Generation Reusable Cup and Reusable Bottle by frank green to be used as a payment method. It works just like a credit or debit card but is a non-cash payment facility- just wave to pay.
The Next Generation products have in-built NFC payment capabilities using Visa payWave, so you can pay wherever Visa prepaid contactless cards are accepted.
How do I know whether I have a product that works with frank green Pay?
Take a look at the base of your product through to the very bottom. Can you see a chip in the base? If so, it sounds like you have one of our Next Generation products that work with frank green Pay.
If it’s clear or you can’t see a chip, it sounds like you have a product from our Original range which is not compatible with frank green Pay.
Still not sure? Send a picture through of the base to our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll be able to confirm either way.
How do I get frank green pay?
It’s as easy as purchasing one of our Next Generation Reusable Cups or Bottles and downloading the frank green Pay App from the Australian iTunes or Google Play stores and completing the simple registration process.
How do I add a frank green Reusable Cup or Reusable Bottle to the app?
frank green Pay will only work with the Next Generation Reusable Cup or Bottle.
You can add the product to the app using the QR code scanner built into the app or by manually entering the serial number of the product.
If you get stuck, there are simple instructions in the app to help you add and manage your product or you can contact us at email@example.com or call frank green on +61 (0) 3 9690 6877.
How do I load money into frank green Pay and how long does It take?
You can manually or automatically load funds via the frank green Pay App but we would recommend you do it manually on the first upload.
You can load funds from an Australian issued MasterCard or Visa card, and the load fee is 3% of the load value. In most instances, the load will be immediate, so you can get that coffee fix straight away, however on occasion due to bank processing times, it may take a little longer to appear.
Are there any limits on how much money I can load into the frank green Pay App?
You can load up to $50 per day, and have a maximum balance at any one time of $200.
There are also daily, monthly and annual limits – check out the Product Disclosure Statement for all the details.
Can I automatically top up my funds in the frank green Pay App?
Yep! You can set up an automatic load and the value that triggers the load via the frank green Pay App.
How do I use my Next Generation product to pay?
Simply hold your Next Generation Reusable product within four centimetres of the contactless terminal to transmit the payment information to the terminal.
Your Next Generation Reusable product uses Visa payWave technology to communicate with the contactless payment terminal.

If you have a Next Generation product, you can use frank green Pay anywhere Visa payWave is accepted. frank green Pay cannot be used outside Australia, and will not accept foreign payment cards for loading of funds.
Does the frank green Pay App need a password to open it?
Yes, you need a password to open the frank green Pay App, but the login screen will provide you basic status information, available balance and the past three transactions for ease and convenience.
If you set up auto-loads, you may find you rarely need to open the app.
Does frank green Pay come with a PIN?
frank green Pay does not come with a PIN, and therefore can only be used for contactless transactions where a PIN is not required.
In Australia, frank green Pay has a maximum transaction value of $50
Can I use frank green Pay to withdraw cash at ATMs?

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 email@example.com 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.
What if I misplace my Next Generation Reusable Cup or Reusable Bottle?
You can temporarily lock your Next Generation Reusable Cup or Reusable Bottle within the frank green Pay App then unlock it within the app when you find it.
If you have lost your product, you can also permanently delete it from your facility. Once you have logged on, you can delete the product by accessing the feature under the “Manage smart payment devices” from the home screen.
If you do delete your product from the frank green Pay App you won’t be able to use it again for payment.
What happens if I lose my Reusable Cup or Reusable Bottle, and I don’t have access to the app?
We get it. Things happen. If your product is lost or stolen and you can’t access the app, you should call 1300 739 889 and we can lock your Next Generation Product and your frank green Pay facility.
When you get a replacement product and can access the app, simply login and check the transaction activity. If you need us to unlock frank green Pay for you, simply contact us on 1300 739 889.

Unless you start to use frank green Pay again, you will continue to be charged the inactive fee until the remaining funds are reduced to zero. At that point your frank green Pay facility will be closed and the product permanently deactivated.
If you start using frank green Pay again the inactive fee will cease.
How do I close frank green Pay?
Just call us on 1300 739 889 and make sure you can identify yourself. To do this, make sure you have the personal details you completed during registration or during the course of using the service. We can then organise for your available funds to be returned and for your frank green facility to be closed permanently.

As the warnings on the app suggest, if you delete your Next Generation product from your frank green Pay account, it will void the chip and you will be unable to continue to use it.

As soon as you delete your product from the App, the funds will be automatically diverted back to the account they came from.
