Add a direct loan payment

Direct loan payments are an easy way to set up recurring payments to your linked ANZ loan accounts.

  • You can choose to set up or increase a Bank Managed Payment, which acts as the main loan payment method. The amount automatically increases if the minimum loan payment amount increases.
  • Alternatively, you can set up regular payments as Customer Managed Payments. The amounts of these payments don't automatically update if the minimum loan payment amount increases.

The Bank Managed Payment option is only available if this is to be your sole method of payment into the selected loan account.
