Don’t forget to return any changes to access cards registered to Market businesses by this Wednesday 23 March. 

  • Drop off your form to one of the designated mail boxes located next the ATM in the Flower Market and outside the Customer Service Centre on the Buyers’ Walk, or
  • Email a scanned copy of your form to cashiers@melbournemarket.com.au.

Please contact the Customer Service Centre between 4:00am to 11:00am Monday to Friday if you have any queries or if you haven’t received your letter. 

On your marks, get set…. BPAY!

Great news – the Market is getting ready to introduce BPAY. 

Soon you will be able to make payments for access cards, parking and other charges via BPAY, an electronic bill payment system which allows you to make easy payments directly from your accounts either online or over the phone (excludes rent and utilities). 

Stay tuned for more details in the next Flower Market Circular or look for the BPAY symbol on your next bill. 

Parking Update

Florists have you paid for your parking?

If you’re a flower buyer and your access card isn’t working, chances are you haven’t paid for your parking. If you think this applies to you, contact the Melbourne Market Customer Service Centre between 4:00am and 11:00am Monday to Friday on 9258 6123 or drop them an email at any time via cashiers@melbournemarket.com.au. 

Don’t get caught out, make sure your payments are up to date.
