How do I Pay AnyBody?

Pay AnyBody transfers can be used to send money to another Bankwest account or any other bank in Australia. Here's how to do it.

In the app

  1. Tap 'Make a payment’ from your ‘Home’ or ‘Payments’ screen
  2. Choose the account to pay from
  3. Tap 'Recipients' and choose who you want to pay (you can also search for a recipient or add a new one)
  4. If you're adding a new recipient, you can save their details for future use
  5. Enter the amount you want to pay and confirm the payment.

In online banking

  1. Click 'Payments' > 'Make a payment' in the menu
  2. Choose 'Make a payment'
  3. Choose an account to pay from
  4. Click 'Recipients' and choose an existing recipient from the list, or add a new recipient and enter their details
  5. Enter the amount you want to pay. You can add a payment description for yourself or the recipient if you'd like
  6. Submit the payment.

The payment process in online banking will be different if you're not registered for SMS code:

  1. Click 'Payments' > 'Make a payment' in the menu
  2. Choose 'Pay AnyBody' and follow the prompts.

We'll automatically send your payment as a Faster Payment if it's eligible (and you're registered for SMS code).

Things to keep in mind

When paying a new recipient, check the BSB and account number are correct as we don’t check, match or verify the account name and number when making a payment. If you enter or select an incorrect BSB or account number, funds may be sent to the wrong account and we may not be able to recover funds from an unintended recipient.

When you pay a new recipient or transfer over a certain amount, we'll ask you to enter an SMS code for security – make sure you have your mobile handy. If you're not registered for SMS code, you can answer two of your secret questions to authorise these payments instead.

SMS code also allows you to change your daily payment limit.
