No more scrambling to remember your BSB and account number. Use your email address or phone number instead
There is a smarter and faster way to serve those who serve Queensland. The New Payments Platform (NPP) is an industry-wide initiative designed to bring smarter and faster payments to Australia. PayID and Osko are the first services available that allow payments to be made via an email address or phone number with payments being made in real-time.
Osko, the payment service by BPAY, is seamlessly integrated with PayID enabling the ability to send and receive near real-time payments. The funds will be transferred almost immediately, even on weekends and public holidays.
With PayID, you no longer need to remember complex BSB and account numbers. Simply share your email address or mobile number when someone wants to pay you, or you pay them.

A PayID identifier cannot be used to take money out of an account. It can only be used to receive payments.
QBANK must follow strict identifications steps (like those already in place in the industry) to ensure a person has a right to change information registered on PayID and that they are the rightful owner, or authority, of the account it is linked to.
It’s in everyone’s interest that PayID is safe and secure which is why it is certified to the highest data security standards and monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The PayID also has high security standards and capabilities that must be met by all financial institutions that wish to register a customer’s details on the service, which they can only do with the customer’s informed consent.
This is a digital service that has been seamlessly integrated into online banking channels like the QBANK App and Internet Banking. This means the service will be easy to access alongside other existing banking services.
When a member registers an identifier with PayID via QBANK, they will be asked to give their identifier a name. This name must be an appropriate representation of the accountholder and must not intend to mislead or confuse a payer. QBANK will have the ability to display this name to the payer during the payment process to confirm that the payee is indeed the person or company they are intending to pay. In many cases, the full legal name of the account holder may also be displayed.
QBANK can instigate a PayID Dispute Resolution process. This will enable the disputed identifier to be investigated and assigned to the rightful owner.
Most fraud in the Australian payments system is CNP (card not present) fraud, when card details are stolen and then used to make purchases or other payments without the card, mainly online.
By contrast, NPP payments are ‘push’ payments from a bank account, requiring the specific authorisation and approval of the account holder, as opposed to funds which are ‘pulled’ from a card, often without the knowledge or involvement of the cardholder, such as CNP payments.
Australian financial institutions have very good fraud detection, screening and alert systems and the NPP will incorporate these capabilities. At the same time, consumers are likely to see mechanisms such as biometric (fingerprint) login protection and two factor authentication used at certain times, for instance for payments made to a first-time payee, or over a certain amount.
