Introducing PayID

Use your mobile number instead of BSB and bank account number for a faster, simpler, smarter way to pay.

Making payments easier

A PayID is a unique identifier you can link to your bank account and use to receive payments. It’s something that’s simple and easy to remember, like a mobile number.

PayID will be launching in 2018 with the New Payments Platform (NPP), a major industry initiative to enable faster, simpler, smarter payments in Australia.

When the platform launches, you can choose to create a PayID and link it to an eligible bank account, or you can choose to continue using your BSB and Account Number. Either way, you’ll benefit from the major improvements being made.

1

What is PayID and how do I create one?

PayID is a feature of the NPP that enables you to create an easy to remember address to direct payments to your account. PayID replaces the need to enter a BSB and account number when sending or receiving a payment. PayID is a simple and memorable piece of information, such as a mobile phone number.

Once the New Payments Platform launches in 2018 we’ll invite you to create a PayID through Bankwest Online Banking or the Bankwest App.

Visit the PayID website for more information.

How will PayID work?

When you need to send a payment, or someone needs to make a payment to you, you can share your respective PayIDs instead of BSBs and account numbers.

If you’ve ever worried about sending money to the wrong account, PayID will help with this too. When you pay to a PayID, the name of the person who owns that PayID is shown before you approve the payment. All you have to do is confirm it’s the right person and because PayID uses the NPP, money will be transferred almost immediately.
