When you're managing Trust Accounts within Australia, you might be familiar with BPAY as a convenient payment option for settling bills with creditors. This article is designed to guide you through setting up and using BPAY for creditor payments in our system.
Setting Up BPAY for Trust Accounts
To integrate BPAY with your Trust Account, you'll need to configure the settings according to your bank's file format. Here's how you can get started:
- Go to the Settings menu to access your Trust Account options.
- Choose the appropriate BPAY file format for your Trust Account from the following available options:
- ANZ Transactive
- Commonwealth Bank CommBiz
- Macquarie Batch Payment
- National Australia Bank
- BPAY for Westpac Corporate
- CSV for Westpac Live
- Bendigo Bank
In case your bank's format is not listed, you won't be able to generate a directly compatible BPAY file. However, you can still process BPAY disbursements. In this scenario, after selecting one of the available file formats, you will have to manually complete the payments at your bank.
