In 2021 six subsidiaries of this company paid penalties totalling $159,840 after the ACCC issued them with 12 infringement notices for allegedly charging subscribers and advertisers excessive payment surcharges. Nine will also provide approximately $450,000 in consumer redress to eligible advertising, home delivery and digital subscription customers. The ACCC was concerned that from December 2018, after Nine merged with Fairfax Media, most consumer and advertiser transactions processed by Nine in which a payment surcharge was applied involved an excessive payment surcharge. Nine applied payment surcharges to digital and home delivery subscription services as well as radio, publishing, TV and digital advertising.
