Merchant eStatements FAQs
Eligible customers will be automatically switched from paper merchant statements to Merchant eStatements on July 26. If you decide to opt-out of this switch by phoning the Merchant Helpdesk on 1800 029 749 before the 26th of July you will still have access to Merchant eStatements and will also be sent a paper merchant statement in the mail.
We have recently launched Merchant eStatements, allowing access to Merchant Statements online, at any time. If an authorised contact has not advised the Merchant Helpdesk on 1800 029 749 before the 26th of July that you wish to continue receiving paper statements, your Merchant Statements will cease to be sent via direct mail.
After the 26th of July, you can change your statement preference in Westpac Live Onlie Banking within Statement Settings for Business Networks and Preferences for personal profiles, if you would prefer to receive paper statements. This preference will apply to the next Merchant Statement cycle. Please note that changes to preferences in these menus before the 26th of July will not be effective. To opt-out of the automatic switch, an authorised contact must phone the Merchant Helpdesk.
