BPAY® is a national bill payment service, jointly developed by Australia's leading financial institutions. BPAY enables consumers to pay their bills with just one contact with their own bank, credit union or building society where it is registered with the BPAY Scheme. Consumers make payments via their nominated financial institution's phone or Internet banking service.
ANZ offers BPAY with a number of features that are designed to meet the needs of our customers who are high volume or special requirement billers. The ANZ special features include electronic delivery of remittance details, streamlined reporting and daily bulked credits.
BPAY can also be used by billers who receive payments of a recurring nature, typically customers who issue 100 or more invoices per week and accept credit card payments.
|Same day cleared funds|
BPAY provides billers with same day cleared funds (provided the payments are made before the nominated cut-off times). This can reduce dishonours and delays and accelerate cash flows.
|Low cost electronic channels|
BPAY uses lower cost electronic channels and offers biller's customers the ability to make immediate payments from their chosen financial institution enabling a reduction in collection costs.
|Streamlined reconciliation and reporting|
BPAY reduces administrative costs with streamlined reconciliation and reporting through credit card and debit transaction data from payments made at all participating financial institutions can be consolidated with data from other ANZ bill pay services.
|Comprehensive security and support|
Comprehensive security and support including data integrity by checking digit/validation for customer reference numbers. Registration and enquiry support for billers and their customers is also available.
ANZ’s newest electronic banking platform ANZ Transactive allows you to download your BPAY payment data file each day so you can rapidly update your accounts receivable system.
|Accurate data entry|
A digit appended to the end of your Customer Reference Number validates the accuracy of data entry by applying a mathematical formula to the remaining digits entered by your customer. The use of a Check Digit is necessary to maintain a high degree of data integrity, ANZ can assist you to select a suitable Check Digit routine for your business.
