Questions? We've got answers

When will my credit be applied?

Found yourself a hot steal? Oosh!

If you're a new Flick customer, credits are applied after your first Flick bill has gone out. We normally apply these on a Friday, a few days after you receive your first bill.

You can find the full terms and conditions here.

I have a friend who might be keen. Can I send them this link?

Go for it! A friend of yours is a friend of Flick.

What price will I pay with Flick?

Your price with Flick is made up of a number of components, including generation, transmission and distribution, your Flick Fee, and things like the Electricity Authority (EA) levy. Sounds complicated, right? Thankfully, we've set it all out transparently in your bill. Whoop!

If you're on our Freestyle price plan, the cost of generation is set by the wholesale market (spot) price of power, while those on our Fixie price plan have a fixed generation price. The wholesale electricity market is used by generators to sell power to retailers (like us!), who then sell the power onto customers (like you!). The New Zealand Electricity Market (NZEM) is regulated by the EA. Find it interesting? Read more about generation here.

Your transmission/distribution costs depend on your meter set up and where you live. Check out the pricing schedule for your area here.

Your Flick Fee is separate and transparent, and if you're on Fixie, additional admin fees per kWh apply. These fees cover the costs of us looking after you as your (flickin' awesome!) retailer.

Do I need a smart meter to join Flick?

Yes you do. To pass on the live wholesale cost of power supply, we need to be able to read your meter every half hour of every day and that’s only possible with a smart meter.

If you don't have a smart meter but you're keen to join Flick, we're currently running a free meter upgrade trial - check out the details here.

How do I pay my bill with Flick?

For Weekly billing we’ll send your bill each Tuesday and take your payment on Thursday via Direct Debit from your bank account or Credit Card.

For Fortnightly billing we’ll send your bill every other Tuesday take your payment on Thursday that week via Direct Debit from your bank account or Credit Card.

For Monthly billing your bill will be available on the second Monday of each month, and take payment ten days later on the Thursday via Direct Debit from your bank account or Credit Card.

You can choose to pay your exact bill amount, or open Volt and pay a regular amount. By paying a little more than your normal bill amount, you'll build up a wee stash of cash that you can then use to automatically knock the top off a higher than normal bill.
