1. Pricing details


The edu.au domain operates on a not-for-profit basis for the benefit of the Australian education and training sector, with licence fees set on a on a cost-recovery basis. The current 2-year licence fee for both new registrations and renewals is:

  • $82.50 including GST for standard accounts
  • $74.25 including GST for bulk accounts.

To be eligible for a bulk account, a registrant must have more than 100 registrations under their management, or be otherwise approved by the .edu.au Domain Administration Committee (eDAC).



2. Payment methods and invoicing


The registrar currently accepts the following payment methods:

  • credit card (Visa and Mastercard)
  • direct deposit or electronic funds transfer (EFT)
  • BPAY
  • cheque.

On approval of a new application or the successful submission of a renewal for an existing domain name, the management console will send a confirmation to both the primary and secondary email addresses listed on the account, with the associated tax invoice attached. The tax invoice will also be available to view and download via the Billing tab when the account holder is signed into the management console.

By default, both the application and renewal processes will prompt the account holder for credit card details. If you require an invoice without upfront payment, or want to use a different payment method, please select Arrange Payment Offline as your payment type.

This option may not be available for all account holders and is subject to approval. To request a post-paid account, please contact our support team.

Details for making payment via direct deposit or EFT, BPAY and cheque are provided on the invoice.

To pay a post-paid invoice by credit card, please call 1300 885 092 or pay online this way.

  • Sign in to the management console using your account reference.
  • From the Billing tab, select the Pay now link in the table row for the invoice.
  • Select a saved credit card or enter a new credit card and then select Pay now.


Please note

By default, the management console will issue separate invoices for each domain name that is registered or renewed. If you would prefer a consolidated invoice, before you submit your order please contact our support team for assistance.




3. Credit card details and default billing method


Credit card details can be saved in the management console for your convenience, or as required, by the automatic renewal function. To add, modify or remove a credit card, do the following.

  • Sign in to the management console using your account reference.
  • Select the Account tab, followed by the Credit card details link in the right panel.

This can be set when a new card is added or by selecting the default flag in the table row in the Current credit cards on file section and then selecting Save changes.

If you want to remove all credit cards saved in the management console, including the default billing method, please send a request to registrar@esa.edu.au from an authorised contact for the account.
