ABA files can be created by using most accounting software (such as Agrimaster, Xero, MYOB® and Quicken) and are great for making multiple payments. Once created, they can be uploaded to OBB using the file upload option when making a new payment.
ABA files can be uploaded for Payroll payments, Pay AnyBody transfers and Direct Debits. However, Direct Debits are only available to pre-approved customers.
When creating the ABA file with your accounting software, you'll need to enter the following details:
Most of the major accounting software programs have these details together with input fields for your bank account name and number.
Remember, we can’t give specific details or support for accounting software, so you’ll need to refer to the provider’s support team if you need any help.
To view transactions contained in the ABA file before approving the payment, select the pending payment in the ‘Pending’ menu and click the ‘View transactions’ button.
BPAY Batch allows you to save time by making multiple BPAY payments to multiple BPAY billers at the same time – all through a single transaction file.
To start, you just need to choose ‘Make a payment’ under ‘Payments & transfers’. Then choose ‘File upload’, followed by ‘BPAY – File Upload’.
Press ‘Select file’, before choosing and uploading your file. You’ll then be able to see all the details of your payment – just enter your secure code and click ‘Confirm’, and you’re done (you’ll then be able to see your payment receipt).
Your accounting software must support the creation of BPAY Batch files using Bankwest’s BPAY batch file specifications. If you need help with this, give us a call on 13 7000.
