New Car Availability
& Customer Survey Results

New Car Availability

It has been well-reported that there are shortages of new cars in Australia across all manufacturer brands. We are finding the wait times for new cars can be up to 6 months. These ongoing delays are seeing Australia’s used car market enjoying an almost “property like bubble”, with limited supply resulting in their value well above the pre-COVID values.

So, what does this mean for anyone contemplating an upgrade to their existing car?

Get into the queue as soon as you can by calling us to find out more. We can either get you into the queue to be behind the wheel of a new car before Spring rolls around or help you to track down a 2nd hand car that meets your needs.

Customer Surveys – NPS

Paywise customers are regularly invited to share their thoughts in a 3-minute survey allowing their feedback to directly improve the Paywise membership experience. With close to 3,000 members completing our survey we are proud to share that our NPS result was 58% with over half of the customers who completed the survey rating Paywise 10/10 and likely to recommend our services to a co-worker or friend.

Tips and Hints

Changing your PIN on your Paywise card

When changing your PIN, select a four-digit combination that’s easy for you to remember but hard for someone else to guess. Do not use number combinations that can be easily guessed like your date of birth, sequential numbers (like 1234) or the same number (like 1111). Once you have chosen your PIN, don’t write it down or share it with anyone.

If you have any questions regarding this, please contact our team on 1300 132 532 or by replying to this email.

The Paywise Mastercard is issued by EML Payment Solutions Limited ABN 30 131 436 532 AFSL 404131. Consider if the card is right for you. Read the PDS for more information.
