  5. Repeat until all necessary users have been enabled

Any users who are not enabled will still have access to purchase titles & plans, but will be required to use the administrator password.

If you wish to restrict access further, this password can be changed by contacting Pricefinder Support.

I don't know the admin password to my account
The admin password is a unique password for title & plans, and is different to your account password. The same admin password is used for all users on your Pricefinder account.

If you're unsure of the password, check with your office administrator or contact Pricefinder Support.
Will I be charged twice if I order the same document again?
Documents purchased on your account will remain active for 24 hours. After 24 hours, any repeat searches will be a new charge as as the document is re-ordered.

As Pricefinder incurs charges for all documents ordered, it is not possible to remove charges for documents that have been re-ordered after 24 hours. 
Can I add a custom reference to the invoice?
When requesting a document, the Invoice Ref allows you to adjust the reference that displays on the invoice. This could be to include staff initials to identify who purchased a document, or to include a unique reference for the property.

Please note, this is the only reference for the document on the invoice, so when adding your own reference ensure it is relevant for your purpose.
My account doesn't have access to Titles & Plans
Contact the Pricefinder Support team who can activate titles & plans for your account (if it is an included feature in your package).

Titles & plans are not available for users on the Investor package. If you are on the Investor package, you can purchase the documents direct from the local state or territory Government.
