You agree to the following Billing Policy when ordering from The ICT Shak.
All charges are shown in Australian Dollars. Payments are to be made in Australian Dollars (AUD).
The ICT Shak has three payment options:
- Credit/ Debit Card or Direct Debit Only
- Direct Deposit or Bank Transfer
NOTE: Your order will not process until your payment is received.
If you provide The ICT Shak your credit card information, you authorise The ICT Shak to automatically charge your credit or debit card for charges that apply to your account. The ICT Shak will automatically charge your credit card or debit card with all charges that apply on the due date of each invoice. You are responsible for directly updating, or notifying The ICT Shak, of any changes to your credit card (including, but not limited to card number, expiration date, billing address, or card status).
Customers not paying by Electronic Transfer or Credit Card agree to make payment of their balance due strictly on the due date of their Billing Invoice. Reoccurring invoices are sent to clients normally 14 days before due date.
Accounts that are seven (7) days past due will be automatically suspended. All past due and unpaid balances are subject to collection. In the event of collection, you will be liable for costs of collection including legal fees, court costs, and collection agency fees.
The ICT Shak offers two Billing Cycles for web-hosting charges:
- Monthly – Paid by Credit/ Debit Card Or Direct Debit Only
- Annually (12 months)
The Billing Cycle begins on the date of the setup of your hosting account, or when the service is initiated.
In order to ensure uninterrupted service to your website, all plans will automatically renew at the end of the plan’s Billing Cycle. Plan renewal charges are based on the prevailing rate on the date of renewal according to the service selected. Plans are renewed for the same billing cycle. If you wish to cancel your plan before the plan renewal, please refer to the Cancellation section below.
The ICT Shak does not mail paper invoices. All invoices are sent via email to the customers designated email address. All invoices and statements are available to access online through our client portal.
For the convenience of the client, The ICT Shak has an online client portal https://billing.theictshak.com.au. In this portal, the client can manage their account and services in addition to view and pay invoices for their current services with The ICT Shak.

For international customers, cheques and money orders must be drawn in Australian Dollars. International wire transfers may be assessed $20 AUD processing fee by an intermediary bank.

Please add these fees to the amount that you are sending to The ICT Shak or the amount credited to your account will be less than your intended payment.
Reactivation after suspension
Customers that wish to reactivate a closed account will incur a $82.50 reactivation fee. A further fee may be assessed if The ICT Shak is required to restore your data files to your reactivated account.

The ICT Shak does not monitor, and will not automatically cancel, plans for issues related to domain name transfers, non-usage, InterNIC, your ISP, or any other secondary issues not directly related to The ICT Shak's services. Cancellation of services does not relieve the customer from paying any outstanding balance owed on the account. The ICT Shak reserves the right to cancel any account, at any time, without notice, for any reason contained in our Terms & Conditions or Acceptable Use Policy as The ICT Shak considers appropriate.
Credit Card Chargebacks
The ICT Shak has a zero-tolerance procedure for chargeback. Any client who disputes a credit card payment is subject to a fine, suspension and account termination at The ICT Shak’s discretion. A charge of $35.00 per chargeback will be calculated to all accounts that receive a chargeback.
The ICT Shak’s policies and prices are subject to change without notice.
Any price changes become effective in the next billing cycle.
