RSL Art Union – FAQs
Do you have a query about your details, how the Art Union is run or just a general enquiry?
- I would like to buy tickets. What are the payment options?
All major credit cards are accepted, direct debit from your nominated (Australian) bank account, cheque or money order or Bpay from your Australian bank account. We are not able to accept international cheques. Cash payments are only accepted at the Prize Home or our nominated agents.
- How do I receive my tickets?
Tickets ordered on the Website will be emailed to your nominated email address provided at the time of placing your order. All other tickets will be mailed to the address provided when you purchased.
- I am not able to view my emailed tickets?
Many popular email providers such as Gmail, Yahoo etc automatically block images in emails. This means when you open your ticket, you may not be able to see the image of the ticket. If your email provider is blocking the image it will usually display a prompt at/near the top of the opened email which reads similar to: “Images are not displayed.” It will also usually contain two options – “Display images below” or “Always display images from RSL Art Union [email@example.com].” Select either of these options to view the ticket image in the email.
Alternatively, you can use the link at the top of the opened email which states: “Click here to view the website version.” This will open the email on the internet. The ticket can then be saved from this location by right clicking and selecting the appropriate action. Once saved, the ticket can then be filed on your computer, or printed if required.
- Why does the return envelope for overseas members have a Singapore address?
All international mail is sent to you using a reputable Australian mail company. The international mail distribution base is located in Singapore, meaning that all international mail passes through and is stamped in Singapore. Please allow up to 2 weeks for your mail to arrive.
- Can I select how RSL communicate with me?
Yes you can. You can choose to be contacted by mail, email or phone. Contact our call centre or send us an email with your request.
