  6. Click Get SMS – a new verification code (One Time Password) will be sent to your mobile
  7. Type this verification code into the Enter your One Time Password field and select Save.

Once you have set up a new payee using their PayID, you will be able to transfer funds using the payee’s unique PayID identifier by going to Payments and then Transfer Money.

While in the Transfer Money screen, you can also select the New Payee button from the ‘To’ dropdown and follow step 3 onwards in the Set up a new payee through Online Banking instructions above.

* Before you can set up a payee using their PayID, they will need to have registered it with their financial institution.

If an Osko® payment isn’t possible, then you will see the words Standard Transfer appear. If this is the case, funds may take up to three business days to transfer.

Don’t forget, you still have the option of using a BSB and Account Number to complete a transfer. Where accounts are reachable through the New Payments Platform, we’ll send it as a Fast Payment, otherwise it will be sent as a standard transfer.
