Save yourself the envelope and stamp. A Pay AnyBody payment can be used to transfer money from your account to any transactional account at any bank or financial institution in Australia.
When making payments to a new recipient or above a certain amount you will be prompted to enter an SMS code so make sure you have your mobile handy. If you’re not registered for SMS code then you’ll be prompted to answer two of your secret questions instead.
NOTE: Payments cannot be made to another bank's credit card. Transfers like this can be processed via BPAY as long as that institution provides a Biller Code on your statement.
NOTE: If you need to make Pay AnyBody transfers to another Bankwest account, this will generally be processed within the hour (even on weekends and public holidays). Payments being sent to non Bankwest accounts are processed at 3:00pm AWST and if your transfer is made after 3:00pm AWST, on the weekend or on a national public holiday, we will process it for you the next business day. Please note it can take up to 3 days for other banks to process the transfer.
TIP:You can pay up to 500 recipients at a time using Pay AnyBody within Bankwest Online Banking and each payment will show as a single debit on your eStatement.
If you're creating future-dated or recurring Pay AnyBody transfers you will need to ensure there is sufficient funds in your account on the day that the transfers are due to be processed.
TIP: if your payment is above your daily payment limit then you can quickly increase your limit by selecting change payment limit below the amount box.
TIP: BOB will automatically save a new recipient to your Pay AnyBody recipient list so it’s quicker to pay your friends in the future. Uncheck the save new recipient option before you click confirm if you don’t want their details saved.
Step 5 only required if the payment is to a new recipient or above a certain dollar amount
TIP: If you’re not registered for SMS code then you’ll be prompted to answer two of your secret questions.
To help ensure your online banking is as safe as possible we need to verify that all high value transactions or transfers to new recipients are made by you.
It all depends on which device and version of mobile banking you access.
To help reduce the risk of any unauthorised activity, you can only make payments to new recipients if you are registered for SMS code; and if this feature is available on the mobile banking version you access from your favourite mobile device.
Currently SMS code is only available on the latest version of the Bankwest app for iPhone.
BOB will automatically save a new recipient when using the full site so you can conveniently make future payments to family and friends using your mobile.
