Fast Payments - a faster way to pay and be paid!

How it Works

Fast Payments is coming soon. It will allow you to pay friends, family and businesses across participating financial institutions, 24/7, 365 days of the year. Whether you're paying a babysitter, splitting a bill, settling up with a tradie or sending funds to family for something urgent - the money will be there in seconds, and it's free.


You gotta love real time payments!





You'll be able to make and receive payments in real time... 24/7, 365 days a year.

Less to Remember
You'll be able to use a mobile number, email address, or an ABN to identify your accounts rather than relying solely on a BSB and account number. You can still use account name, number and BSB if preferred.

Detailed Descriptions
With 280 characters of text available to include with your payment, it's even easier to describe what it was for and who it was made to.
It means you can keep a more detailed record of your payments.

When you transfer money using your PayID, you'll receive confirmation that it's going to the right place. Payments can only be authorised within online or mobile banking and the platform is backed by the financial services sector and Reserve Bank of Australia.



Prepare for PayID... coming sooner than you think!

PayID will be available very soon. Before you see an option to register for PayID, you'll need to register for One Time Password. You can check in Security Options in HandyNet.
