Why do I have to provide supporting documents?
We ask for supporting documents to help us work to resolve your dispute with the retailer more quickly and in your favour.

We’re not questioning the validity of your dispute, it’s so we can help the retailer to find the facts, if they had a system crash or have missing paperwork, for example.

What else can I do at the Document Centre?
The following activities have accompanying forms that you need to complete and include as part of your upload:

  • Optional Programmes (i.e., Third Party Authorisation)
  • Direct Debit Maintenance
  • Cash Enrolment / Express Cash (Select “Other” from the drop-down options)
  • Name Change

These forms are also available in the Document Centre.
