How to pay for business membership fees with a credit card

Depending on your industry and the size of your business, you may need to or want to be part of an association or industry group. 

These could include local business groups, your state Chamber of Commerce and Industry or the Small Business Association of Australia.

Many individual industries also have their own industry associations and groups.

Some well-known examples include state real estate institutes, the Australian Retailers Association, Master Builders Association, Australian Hotels Association, Australian Medical Association and Australian Dental Association. 

Having your business be a part of groups like these might help advance your business or make your life running a business a lot easier. 

But these groups often attract annual membership fees and, depending on the size of your business, these can add up. 

However, with pay.com.au you can pay for all your business membership fees using a points-earning credit card to help you reap even more rewards from signing up.

Even if the business group does not accept credit card payments or only accepts select cards, we can make sure you still earn maximum frequent flyer points on all your membership fees. 

With low fees and a simple and easy-to-use interface, pay.com.au can help you do business better.

Paying your business membership fees could help get you on your way to a France holiday.

How can I pay for business membership fees by credit card?

Don’t worry if your business or industry group does not accept credit card payments.

Even if they do accept credit card but only VISA and Mastercard, you can still put all your membership fees on a high points-earning American Express card with pay.com.au

The process is simple: You make a payment at pay.com.au with any credit or charge card of your choice and we will pay the business or industry group on your behalf.

The timing between a credit card payment made by you and receipt by the payee is typically only T+2 days. 

And by paying with a credit card, you can enjoy up to 55 days interest free to pay off those membership fees.

How many points can you earn paying for business membership fees with a credit card?

That depends on the size of your business, the industry you are in and which business group or association you are part of. 

However, with the right business credit card you can earn up to 1.25 points per dollar spent on all membership fees paid through pay.com.au
