Delays in processing a transaction

Delays may occur in processing a transaction due to the following scenarios:
  • the transaction or instructions to make a transaction is made on or the day after a public or bank holiday
  • authorisation of the transaction needs to be verified
  • another BPAY Scheme participant isn’t complying with its obligations
  • there’s a system malfunction
  • inactive accounts – if this is the first transaction to your account after a long period of inactivity.

Please note we try to address any delays with processing a transaction as soon as possible.

Additional information on cut off and processing times:
  1. After the transaction is processed by us, Pay Anyone Payments are generally received the following business day. Pay Anyone Payments to Building Societies and Credit Unions may take up to two business days to be received
  2. Although funds may be treated as received by the Biller, they may not be available in the Biller’s account for up to three business days.
