Payments from Overseas

Overseas buyers should note that our auctions are conducted in Australian dollars & all invoices are expressed in Australian $. We are not in the foreign currency business and only wish to assist overseas buyers in making payment to us. Therefore, in cases of foreign currency payments the Aus$ amount credited to us by our bankers is definite.

Payment easiest by:

(1) Credit Cards subject to reference checks and surcharge: Visa or Mastercard (+2%), or American Express or Diners (+3%)

(2) Bank or wire transfer to our account in Sydney. Please add $20 extra to cover handling fees charged by our bank.

account name:I S Wright TA Status International
bank:Commonwealth Bank of Australia (48 Martin Place, Sydney, NSW 2000)
account:14903688
BSB:062000
SWIFT:CTBAAU2S

Please inform us when payment is sent with details of amount so we can match payments with invoices. It is best for sender to have their bank convert to Aus$ and send transfer in Aus$. Of course transfers in any major currency are accepted as our bank will automatically convert foreign currency received to Aus$. In such cases we suggest buyers add an extra 1% to foreign currency payments to cover currency fluctuations. Any credit or debit will applied to buyers account.

(3) Bank drafts/cashier's checks in Australian $ (no bank fees)

Also possible by:

(4) Checks/Cheques in US$ or £, made out to I S Wright not Status International (subject to $10 bank fees & use of "buy" exchange rate of our bank, not mid-rate).
If you wish to pay in US$ or £ please ask us the US$ or £ equivalent amount of our Aus$ invoice, just before you make the payment, and we will provide the current US$ or £ equivalent amount. Bank drafts, cashiers checks or money orders are preferred as personal/company checks may have to wait for clearance (30+ days) before purchases can be sent.
