How do I connect a bank feed?

A bank feed must be set up with your third-party service provider (software company) before it can be connected in Westpac Online Banking. Contact your provider to find out how.

Once you have established a link to your preferred third-party follow the steps below:

  1. Sign in to Online Banking from a desktop
  2. Select Services
  3. In the Account service section, select Bank Feeds
  4. Select an account (or multiple accounts), then select To third party service provider 
  5. Select Connect feed.


Note: If you are changing your third-party service provider or a user’s access levels, you will need to disconnect your previous bank feed before proceeding.
