We prioritise your payment security
Sniip is a trusted partner of Amex. Payment security is of the highest priority at Sniip. Know that you can safely make credit card payments from your phone. Sniip supports credit card payments through Apple Pay and Google pay
We have never had a security breach in our 8+ years of operations and have quarterly vulnerability scans to try and penetrate our systems. Our systems have never been penetrated.
Sniip is proud to have achieved and maintains Tier 1 Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance.
This mean you can rest assured that your payments are protected by the highest safety and encryption standards.
Sniip is a BPSP (Bill Payment Service Provider), which means when you make a payment through us becomes a two-legged transaction. The day that we receive your funds is the day you bill gets paid. We do not hold onto your funds. The payment that you make to us will appear on your statement as ‘Sniip Ltd’.
We have processed over $200 million worth of Amex transactions to date.
For more detailed information, you can read our terms and conditions.
There is a 1.5% (incl GST) processing fee for using any Amex card with Sniip.
Yes. If you have a rewards credit card you will earn FULL POINTS on all your bills at 1.5% (incl GST).
Sure can! Sniip allows users to pay most billers with an Amex card using a BPAY Biller Code and Reference Number.
Please note: Unfortunately DEFT payments are not currently approved with Amex.
Why? There are some additional Amex requirements which we need to satisfy in order to process DEFT payments. We hope this will be available in the future and will let you know as soon as DEFT is available for Amex cards again.
This breaks our heart but we’re working on a solution.
Unfortunately, as DEFT payments don’t allow us to see who the final bill provider is, they are not currently approved with Amex.
Rest assured, we’re working on a solution and hope to turn DEFT back on in the near future.
You are still able to use a Visa or Mastercard for DEFT payments. We will let you know as soon as DEFT is available for Amex cards again.
Sniip has a direct partnership agreement with Amex. This allowed our processing fee to drop from 2.2% (2020) to 1.5% (2021 and beyond).
The advantage of using Sniip is that you earn full points on all of your bills (including at the ATO).
Unfortunately, we are restricted from allowing payments to certain billers using credit facilities, as determined by BPAY and our banking partners.
This means, you aren’t able to pay credit facilities with a credit card. Should you wish to pay this biller with a bank account (0% processing fee), we could facilitate this transaction.
When you add a credit card to the Sniip app, we process a $1 charge to authorise your card. Rest assured this amount is refunded in full to your card within 48 hours.
