Existing Stripe accounts cannot be integrated with PlayHQ, so you will need to set up a new account. You can link your existing Association/Club bank details to your new Stripe account.

Each MO, Association and Club will have different policies surrounding refunds. Your MO will provide additional information to their associations and clubs.

When you submit your Stripe details you will receive a confirmation message this confirmation message - " Your payment details have been submitted. Please contact support for any amendments or questions." Once these details have been received your account is normally activated within 24-48 hours. Unfortunately, the payments screen does not update to confirm your account has been successfully created for now, however if you try to set up any registration or merchandise fees you will see an error informing you your Stripe account has not been created. From there it's best to check with the support team for next steps. We hope to make improvements to the Stripe payment active screen in the near future to notify your organisation's Stripe account has been successfully updated.

We are working on a solution but for 2022, Associations will need to ensure that they set up non-playing fees within their competition to register non-players (i.e. $0.00 fees for officials etc).

Detailed instructions will be provided when State Member Organisation fees are finalised for 2022. 

Until we have a non-player solution for the 2023 season, administrators will need to request that a non-playing participant from another Association provides proof of their current registration to you e.g. via screenshot, or in person via their mobile phone screen.

To ensure that the Active Kids voucher disbursement is maximised and to eliminate administrative burden, the voucher will be disbursed from the lowest organisation level, and then upwards, until the $100 has been utilised. If the clubs’ fees are at or over $100, they will still receive all the disbursements. To receive Active Kids disbursements in 2022, Associations and Clubs must provide their bank details to Netball NSW. Please visit the Netball NSW website for further information and the relevant form.
