GoSwitch actively monitors publicly available deals as well as negotiating exclusive special deals not usually available to consumers. When comparing deals, we consider all bonuses, discounts and clauses. We read the fine print so you can find the deal that is best suited to your needs.

Our data is updated regularly, as suppliers update their rates and offers. This is also a good reason to check back with us at regular intervals to see if you are still getting a competitive offer.

How does GoSwitch make money

The 4 steps involved in changing you over are really quite quick and simple.

Step 1

GoSwitch will deliver your request to the retailer immediately, ensuring that your current supplier is informed of the change and to cease billing after the next meter reading (to be scheduled and performed by your current supplier as soon as possible).

Step 2

GoSwitch will send you regular emails to update you on the progress of your switch with the retailer. Once the retailer has finalised the processing of the order we will send you an email confirming this. In the case that the retailer is unable to process your order, we will contact you to confirm your details and resubmit your application.

Step 3

After processing your order, the new energy retailer will send you a welcome pack containing the plan details and a copy of the energy retailer’s full Terms and Conditions. It will also contain all your relevant application details based on the meter configuration and product you have selected. If your actual meter configuration is different to what was selected, the chosen energy retailer may vary the charges and will contact you in writing to advise of this change. If you have elected to receive your welcome pack electronically, you will have received your welcome pack via your nominated email address.

Step 4

The switch will likely occur at your next meter reading, at which time you will receive a final bill from your current provider and the new service will begin.
