Are there really no fees?
Absolutely, there’s nothing for you to pay beyond the shopping you’re already doing. We won’t charge fees or commissions for managing your portfolio or anything else. Certain costs may apply depending on the investment option, such as fees charged by underlying ETF fund managers and transactional and operational costs. Please see the PDS for more details.
What support will be available?
What is an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF)?
An exchange traded fund (ETF) is a basket of shares from various companies, which can be bought and sold on an exchange. ETFs are typically grouped based on a specific theme or characteristic. On Upstreet you may receive fractional share rewards that are in the form of an ETF. The ETFs on our platform are as follows: FAIR, FANG, IOZ
What if my bank account won't connect?
Bank linking is an important part of having a seamless experience on Upstreet. If your bank won’t connect (or has recently stopped connecting), there are a few possible solutions you can try. You can also contact support if you need further assistance.
Why do you need my bank details?
If you link the cards and accounts you shop with, we can ensure you receive your fractional share rewards automatically after shopping with a particular brand using that account.
Is there a minimum spend before I start earning shares?
No, there’s no minimum. Every eligible purchase will earn you a reward in fractional shares. How many shares or what fraction of a share you receive just depends on how much you spend and what the current share price is.
How have you made it possible to offer fractional shares?
We purchase whole shares for our customers and put them into a unit trust on your behalf. When you're rewarded for a purchase, you'll receive units in that trust (which means you'll hold a fractional interest in the underlying shares).
Who can open an Upstreet account?
You need to be at least 18 years of age and a permanent resident of Australia for tax purposes.
Can I withdraw my earnings at any time?
Yes, you can make a withdrawal request at any time. There are no fees or penalties on withdrawals. However, holding on to your portfolio over time can be a great way to build its value. Simply fill out the Withdrawal form and email it to email@example.com. The form can also be found in the app under Settings. Limitations apply. See the PDS for more details.
How long will it take for my shares to appear in Upstreet?
The time between purchase and reward approval can vary between partner brands and banks; it will usually take 1-5 days.
If you made a purchase with a partner brand but haven’t received your share reward, please check if the payment method you used was linked in the Upstreet app. If you still haven’t received your reward after 5 days, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org including a receipt of your purchase.
Can my account be locked?
An account may be locked temporarily if we notice unusual transactions on your account, there has been a problem with processing a transaction or we need to confirm some information with you. Contact support for more information: email@example.com .
How do you handle my personal data?
How does this affect my income tax?
Any earnings on your investments are subject to taxes according to Australian tax laws. After the end of each financial year, we will send you a single annual tax statement by email known as an Attribution Managed Trust Member Annual (AMMA) statement. Before the end of the financial year we will also ask you to provide us with your TFN, so that we can pre-populate your gains and losses to the ATO.
For further information please see the ATO’s detailed guidance to help individuals lodge their tax returns.
What credit or debit cards are eligible to be linked?
Not all debit and credit cards are eligible to be linked to your account. All determinations as to whether a card is eligible to be a Payment Card are at our sole discretion. Certain Mastercard and Visa cards are not eligible to be linked to your account, including, but not limited to, the following: prepaid cards, corporate cards, purchasing cards, Visa giftcards, store cards which can only be used at their respective retailers’ stores, government-administered prepaid cards, including Medicare and healthcare cards and cards that are not processed through the Visa payment system or the Mastercard payment system. In order to be eligible as a Payment Card, it must be issued by an Australian Financial Institution.
Why can’t I link my credit or debit card?
Please ensure that it is an Australian Visa or Mastercard debit or credit card. Also, if your card is linked with a cashback provider, you are unfortunately unable to link that card to your Upstreet account. In this case, you may disconnect your card from other accounts and then link it to your Upstreet account.
How does Upstreet secure my credit or debit card details?
Card details are not stored by Upstreet. During the registration process your card details are passed directly to either Visa or Mastercard alongside your Upstreet User ID.
How do I link my credit or debit card in the Upstreet app?
Open the Upstreet App and click on the ‘gear’ icon in the top right corner, followed by ‘Link card and bank account’. From here click the ‘+’ icon to link your card.
