If we do not have contact details, we cannot warn the customer that their 12 month anniversary is approaching. Upon the Primary status coming to an end, although you will still be able to pay wages into the workers account, the worker’s card will be suspended until they can provide ID to become a Select customer.
If a Primary customer status has ended in between seasons, will I have to open new account for the worker when they return?
No. You will not need to open a new account, but the worker will need to provide ID in order to become a Select customer upon their return if the account was opened more than 12 months ago.
Can a customer whose Primary status has ended be reinstated if a worker returns but does not want to be a Select customer?
No. If a worker wants to continue using their card beyond 12 months, they must provide ID to become a Select customer.
Why have my workers been sent an email advising their OnePay card is being suspended?
We contact all Primary customers that we hold contact details for, to advise they are approaching their 12 month anniversary. Primary customers have access to an account for 12 months. If they want to continue using the account after 12 months, they need to become a Select customer.
