Setting up a recurring payment

  • Recurring payments allow you to make repeat payments on a regular basis, for the same amount and a specific number of times. An example would be transferring extra money to your home loan account each payday.  
  • You can create them for BPAY® and Funds Transfers. They can be set up for an exact number of occurrences, for a certain date or until they’re cancelled.
  • Once a recurring payment has been established, you can cancel, change the amount or place it on hold at any time. 
  • Recurring payments are safe, secure and protected by our Online Banking Security Guarantee

Things you should know

Read the Westpac Online Banking Terms and Conditions (PDF 236KB) at westpac.com.au before making a decision and consider whether the product is right for you.


Overseas banks may impose fees and charges or convert the currency of the payment. Westpac may not have any control over the fees, charges or foreign currency conversions imposed by these institutions. Any overseas financial institution handling charges will by default be borne by the recipient of the International Payment and deducted from the payment amount, unless otherwise organised. It is possible that the overseas bank could convert the currency of the payment at an unfavourable exchange rate. You should inform the beneficiary that, if this occurs, they should consider rejecting the payment immediately so the payment can be unwound at the prevailing exchange rate.

If you do not want the currency to be converted, please insert the words “Do Not Convert” in the description details free text box when you are making an international payment and we will on-forward this instruction.
