Your round-ups will be withdrawn from your Funding Account usually on the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th days of the calendar month (or the next business day if a non-business day) when your round-ups (plus any Boosters) equal at least $5 in total for the period. It can take up to 3 business days for the withdrawal to clear.
Your round-ups are held securely by Wisr until the month’s accumulated round-ups are deposited (less any fees) into your registered Debt Account by the 7th day of the calendar month (or the next business day if a non-business day).
Your Debt Account is the debt you’re trying to pay off faster (credit card or mortgage) where Wisr will deposit your accrued round-ups by the 7th day of the calendar month. Your Round-up Account is the account where Wisr tracks your daily transactions to calculate your round-ups. Your Funding Account is where the value of the week’s Round-ups are withdrawn from on a weekly basis. You can select the same bank account for both your Round-up and Funding account (if it’s a debit account) some people, however, prefer to use a daily transactions account for their Round-up Account, and a savings account as their Funding Account. You can also select different bank accounts from different financial institutions if you wish.
Your accumulated round-ups are deposited into your nominated Debt Account by the 7th day of the calendar month (or the next business day if a non-business day). It can take up to 3 business days (but usually 24 hours) for your round-ups to reach your Debt Account.
You can pay down any type of debt that has a BPAY payment option, or that would be listed in your internet banking such as a mortgage, or a savings account. The only exception is that we’re not able to pay into a non-Wisr Personal Loan (but check out Wisr personal loans , because they’re pretty great).
If you have a BPAY biller code and reference number for your credit card, old telephone bill, or anything like that, you can select “credit card” to input the BPAY details of your debt, or if it’s a bank account of mortgage, simply select “Bank Account” on the debt account screen and you’ll be able to select from your bank accounts list.
Once Wisr initiates a transaction it will have to resolve completely. If you would like to take a break from rounding-up, you can turn Round-ups off by opening the menu from within your app, and accessing ‘Settings’. It’s important to remember that it may take up to 2 business days to stop a withdrawal from occurring, so if there is a withdrawal due within that time that transaction may still occur.
This depends on your financial institution – some will not allow you to overdraw your account and the direct debit will dishonour, other institutions may allow for overdraft and charge you a fee. Ask your financial institution to see what applies to you. Wisr will notify you via email if a direct debit fails, and automatically turn off your round-ups.
It’s important that customers ensure that their Funding Account has sufficient funds before using the app to round-up. Wisr will attempt to send in-app and email reminders the day before a withdrawal is made. Wisr will not be responsible for any fees charged to you by your financial institution.
Once Wisr has withdrawn your round-ups from your Funding Account and paid them into your Debt Account, this cannot be reversed. For round-ups held by Wisr during the month, typically this will need to be paid to your Debt Account. If you need this refunded to you, you will need to contact Wisr immediately at email@example.com to discuss.
Don’t fret, round-ups are calculated from your Round-up Account daily, deducted from your Funding Account weekly, and paid to your Debt Account as a lump sum monthly by the 7th day of each calendar month (or the next business day if a non-business day). If you still haven’t seen your round-ups deposited a few business days after the 7th of the month, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If any of your registered Round-up, Funding or Debt Account changes for any reason, you can update these details through the ‘My Account’ section in the menu options within the app.
You can unlink or choose a new Funding Account by accessing ‘My Account’ then ‘Funding Account’ in the menu and tapping ‘change’ in the top right-hand corner. If you have any round-up amounts accumulated, you must have a Funding Account registered.

To change your Debt Account to another type – Credit Card to a Bank Account or a Wisr Personal Loan, access ‘My Account’ then ‘Debt Account’ in the menu and then tap ‘I want to pay down another kind of debt’ along the bottom of the screen and choose the Debt Account of your choice. Please note that for a credit card the Biller code is usually 4-digit code and reference number 16-digit.
If you have any round-up amounts accumulated or money held by Wisr on your behalf, you must have a Debt Account registered.
