Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to change my bank Account?
No. Tyro can autosweep EFTPOS settlements from the Tyro Bank Account into any Australian bank account.
How long does it take for funds to settle?
Tyro submits payment instructions for the previous day's transactions to the merchants' nominated transaction bank in a file at 10am on banking days via the Bulk Electronic Clearing System (BECS). Non-banking days (weekends and Public Holidays) are submitted along with the next banking day's transactions. However, Tyro is now offering 'Flexible Settlements', which allows merchants to select a settlement time (after 8pm) 7 days a week.
Is there any lock-in contract?
Tyro has no lock-in contract, we believe in our products. You may cancel at anytime.
How long does it take for the terminals to arrive?
Once your application is approved, it’ll take 2-4 business days for the terminal to arrive.
