New Payments Platform

PayID

Let’s face it, remembering your bank details is tough. With all the numbers in our lives, who can remember their BSB and account numbers?

That’s where a PayID can help.

A PayID is a smart address for real-time payments that’s easy to remember – like your mobile phone number or email address. You can register a PayID with Credit Union SA in Internet Banking or our Mobile Banking App and link it to an account of your choice.

Then, when someone needs to pay you, just give them your PayID instead of your BSB and account number. Simple!

Faster and simpler

PayID is designed to work seamlessly with the new Osko by BPAY service, which we have integrated into our Internet Banking and Mobile Banking App. You can now make and receive payments faster than ever before, 24/7.

Pay the right person every time

If you’ve ever worried about sending money to the wrong person, PayID can help.

When you use a PayID to transfer money the system will automatically show you the name of the person the PayID is registered to before you send the money. So you can be confident knowing your money is going to the right place.

BSB and account numbers still exist

PayID is an easier way to pay someone – it won’t be replacing regular transfers or BPAY. You can choose not to register a PayID and continue using BSB and account numbers to pay or get paid by others (a PayID is easier, though).

  • If someone knows my PayID, can they use it to commit fraud?

    No, as a PayID is only used to receive funds, not send them.

  • Can someone else register my details (mobile, email) as their PayID?

    Only the owner of the device can register it as a PayID, as it requires Two-factor Authentication (2FA) in the form of a code sent to the phone number or email address provided to complete the registration. Read more about Two-factor Authentication on the Stay Smart Online website.
