What do I need to know before I register for Online Banking?

There are two ways to register for Online Banking based on your business type.

  • Sole trader or partnership? Register online for ‘Personal’ Online Banking. 
  • Company or entity with multiple signatories? Register by completing an application form for ‘Network’ Online Banking and take it into a Westpac branch.

What’s your business type?

Register for ‘Network’ Online Banking

If you’re an existing Westpac customer, you’ll need the 8-digit Westpac customer number and signature of each signatory. Not a Westpac customer? To be eligible to register for Online Banking, you’ll need to open a business bank account. Once you’ve filled out the form you can return it to any Westpac branch or your relationship manager.
