How to import payment details

Import payment details into Westpac Online Banking to save time when making multiple Pay Anyone or BPAY® payments.​

What is importing a payment file?​

The Import file feature Online Banking allows you to import a csv file, which consists of multiple payment details created using your accounting software.​

Once the file is imported the payments will be populated so that you can easily process them as part of a multiple Pay Anyone or BPAY® transfer with one debit from your chosen business account. This can be used to make payments to employees and suppliers.​

Pay Anyone (BSB and account numbers) and BPAY® (biller codes and customer reference numbers) payments should be imported as separate files. Assure you have saved the file as a .CSV file.
