Make a Payment
Save time and skip the hassle of worrying about due dates or penalty charges. EASYPAY allows rates, debtor accounts and water accounts to be paid by direct debit and for payment to be automatically deducted from your bank account.
When using direct debit, you are able to set up a combined payment for your rates and your water bill.
When paying via online banking, it's crucial that you use the correct information in the particulars, reference, and code fields. Every day Council processes many different payments for a variety of services, so we need the right information to process and receipt your payment.
Search for "Waipa District Council" as a payee in the automatic list of registered companies, or enter our account details manually.

Please note that using a credit card will incur a convenience fee that is charged by the credit card and merchant service providers. Council does not retain any part of this fee (we initially receive the fee as part of the total payment amount, but then pay the entire fee out again to the merchant services provider). The credit card surcharges for each of these cards are:
- Visa: $1.46 per transaction
- MasterCard: 2%
If the payment is made using a credit card issued outside New Zealand, any currency conversion will be done according to the terms and conditions of the card - there may be currency conversion fees charged by your card issuer.
Transactions are processed within two working days of the payment. Please contact us regarding refunds for overpayments or incorrect payments.
