Adding and making payments to payees

If there are people or companies you pay regularly, it can be more convenient to add them as payees. This will make it easier to pay them next time. If you make the same payment regularly to the same payee, you can set up an automatic payment for any bills up to a maximum limit of $100,000.

Follow the steps below, watch our video, or use the downloadable guide.

If you only want to pay someone once, and the payment is less than $50,000, you can make a one-off payment.

Adding a payee

Adding someone as a payee securely saves their details, so you don’t have to enter account information every time you pay them.

  1. Click on Someone new in the Quick pay area at the bottom of the main screen.
  2. Choose Add a payee.
  3. Enter the payee’s name and account information. You can add additional details by clicking on the plus (+) button.
  4. Click Add.

If you have lots of payees, the ones you pay most regularly will appear in the Quick pay area of your main page. Your other payees are found by clicking on Menu, then Payees.
