Select the 'Transfers' menu and select 'Bpay Transfers'. Follow the simple instructions and wait for a receipt number.
I am no longer required to use an on-screen keyboard to login to Internet Banking. Is this secure?
The on-screen keyboard has been removed due to consistent customer feedback that it was difficult to log in to Internet Banking on a desktop computer. The two fields required to access Internet Banking - Member number and password, remain the same. Typing these using a keyboard is an equally secure method of logging in to Internet Banking as using a mouse on the floating keyboard.
Is a Bpay service provided by Bank First's Internet Banking?
Yes. You can access BPAY by clicking on the 'Transfers' menu and selecting 'BPAY Transfers' . To use Bpay you will need these details shown on the bill: The Bpay biller code. Your Customer Reference Number. The payment amount.
When I request a transfer of funds, does the funds movement reflect in my account balances immediately?
Yes. Funds Transfer Internal adjusts the associated accounts online, thus these funds will become available for other uses.
For Funds Transfer External, where a 'Transfer Now" payment request is made after 4:30pm, or outside of business hours, your payment will be sent on the next business day.
What can I do with Bpay?
You can pay your bills via once-off payments, or you can set up regular payments to Bpay billers. You can also use Bpay to help you bank fee-free as Bpay is a free transaction.
