LADD Payments Service

What is the LADD Payments Service?

The Libraries Australia Document Delivery Payments Service (LADDPS) manages the financial transactions between supplying and requesting libraries.

The Payments Service:

  • credits the supplying library for the amount of the charge imposed by the supplying library

  • debits the requesting library for the amount of the charge imposed by the supplying library

  • emails you a report of all transactions between your library and other members of the payments scheme during the billing period

  • every two months, forwards an invoice for the total debits and an EFT payment for the total credits accumulated during the billing period

  • makes a single payment to your library for all items supplied

  • issues your library with a single invoice for all items requested

  • emails you a detailed transaction report for all items supplied and requested during the two-monthly billing period.

Why use the Payments Service?

The LADD Payments Service:

  • saves you time and money, with central settlements of your interlibrary loans payments and charges, and a single payment and invoice every two months

  • is fully automatic and secure

  • is easy to join and use

  • lets you set your own charges or take advantage of Australian Interlibrary Resource Sharing (ILRS) Code fees.

The service also provides activity reports on your interlibrary loans and document delivery requests, and items supplied—see this example LADDPS report.
