Dual Account Customer FAQ

This article will help iiNet customers who have services across two billing systems understand the differences between their two iiNet accounts and how they can manage their services. We call these customers "dual account" customers.

iiNet is currently in the process of implementing a new billing system behind the scenes. It's a gradual process to release our existing broadband products on this billing system and at the moment, only new customers are being placed in the new billing system and existing customers can remain in the existing billing system.

However, iiNet ULTRA Broadband powered by our FTTB network isn't supported by our existing billing system. This product can only be provided through the new system. That means if we have an existing customer who's able to connect to our FTTB network, we need to make a new iiNet account for them in the new billing system.

In some cases, customers may have existing iiNet services which aren't available in the new billing system yet, either. That means that both iiNet accounts need to continue indefinitely until such a time that we're able to get all of their services in the same billing system. We call this situation a "dual account".

 

Nope. Simply use the standard contact information available on our Contact Us page and follow the prompts to get through to the department you need.

 

Yes. Each billing system will issue its own invoice for the services on each account. Don't worry, though - you won't be billed twice for the same service as one service can only exist in one billing system. You'll receive your invoices via email as usual and payment will be automatically debited from your nominated bank account or credit card in time for the due date.

These invoices look different. At a glance, you can see that it's pretty easy to tell which is which. You can also take a loot at the services which are listed on your invoice to confirm which is which.

From time to time, you may need to check out a guide on iiHelp to read up on how to do something related to your iiNet account or services. The majority of articles, such as those for troubleshooting services, can be used by any iiNet customer, regardless of which billing system their services are in. However, some articles, particularly those about billing and Toolbox, have different information that's relevant to either our existing billing system, or our new billing system.

So, how do you get the information you're looking for? It's pretty simple. Currently, articles for our existing billing system are shown by default. Whenever an iiHelp article has another version available with information relevant to our new billing system, you'll see a banner like this across the top of the article:

Click the text "You can change this selection at any time" to bring up a window where you can confirm your billing system in one of two ways. First, you can choose between the two different invoice designs (the existing invoice design is on the left and the new invoice design is on the right):

Or secondly, you can choose between the two different Toolbox layouts. The Toolbox for the existing billing system is on the left and the Toolbox for the new billing system is on the right:

Once you've made a decision, you'll be taken to the relevant article and the banner will update. Just list before, if you need to switch back, you can click the text "You can change this selection at any time" to switch your decision.
