Registering

To use BPAY View, you will need to be registered for internet banking with your financial institution.

Through your internet banking website, locate the BPAY View section and follow the steps to add or register a new BPAY View biller. To receive your rates notice through BPAY View enter the following details:

Rate Notice

  • Biller Code:5074
  • Reference Number: use the Bpay Reference Number from your previous Rate Notice
  • Valuation Number: use the Valuation Number from your previous Rates Notice

Once the details have been entered, you will be notified via email in a day or so as to whether your registration was successful. (If you receive more than one Rate Notice repeat the above steps for each notice you now wish to receive online.)

Receiving your Rate Notice

Once registered with BPAY View, your next Rate Notice will be sent electronically only, and your financial institution will notify you when this occurs (via email, SMS or internal internet banking messages - depending on what notifications are available/activated with your financial institution).

Then simply login to your internet banking site to view and pay your notice. The electronic copy of your notice will look exactly the same as the printed version, and you can also choose to print and save your own copy if required.

You will receive a payment reminder (depending on your financial institution) up to two (2) days prior to the due date. When making a BPAY payment from the BPAY View section of your internet banking site, the amount to pay and reference numbers will be pre-populated to make it easier for you.

Otherwise, you can still use any other payment method to pay your notice (including direct debit) when you receive your notice with BPAY View.

If you have any additional questions, visit the BPAY website or contact your financial institution.
