This should only take one business day. There may be a delay if you miss your bank's BPAY cut off times or if it’s a weekend or public holiday. You’ll need to be registered with your financial institution for phone or internet banking first, to use BPAY.

If you have not used BPAY before and need a little help, visit www.bpay.com.au.
