  • Select the account you wish to transfer money from.
  • Select the account you wish to transfer money to.
  • Enter your amount in $AUD.
  • Select the frequency of your payment. If it’s to be a one-off, just click ‘NOW’. If you want the payment to occur later, click ‘LATER’.
  • Select whether you want to send the payment as an Osko (real time) payment or as a traditional transfer, which can take up to two business days.
  • If you want the payment to be a one off, just select the start date of your payment, and a frequency of ‘ONCE’.
  • If you want your payment to become a recurring payment, select the frequency of your payment (weekly, fortnightly, etc) and select a payment stop date (further notice or selected date)
  • Click continue

If you’re processing a payment to a payee you’ve never used before, you’ll be prompted to enter your one-time SMS password, which will be sent to the mobile phone we have on file for you. If you do not receive a code, just give us a call on 13 13 86, and we’ll help in processing your payment.
