Adding a payee to your list means you can easily transfer money to that person's account without filling in their account details each time. You can also edit their details or delete the payee. 

Before adding a payee

Before you add a payee to your Pay Anyone list you must ensure that the payee is aware:

  • of ANZ's identity and contact information
  • that they are able to access the information ANZ holds about them
  • that their banking details are collected for transferring money directly into their account
  • that ANZ will not disclose their information to other organisations.

Remember that it is your responsibility to ensure the details provided by you are correct as we do not check that the details are correct.

Step 1 - Navigate to "Add payee"
  • Go to the "Profile" menu
  • Select "Manage payees"
  • Select “Add payee”
Step 2 - Enter the payee details
  • Account name: this may be used by some financial institution to correctly identify the account when making payments
  • BSB: this will be a 6 digit number. Do not include any spaces or dashes.
  • Account number: will be a maximum of 9 digits.
  • Payee nickname: create a nickname for the payee. The nickname can be a maximum of 20 characters and cannot include special characters (For example !@#$ %^*-).
  • The nickname will help you identify the payee for future payments.

If you enter an incorrect BSB and/or account number, your funds may be paid to an unintended recipient and they may not be recovered. ANZ does not check the account name matches the account number.

Step 3 - Save the payee
  • If you are happy with the information select "Save".
  • This will save the payee's information in your Pay Anyone payee list.
  • Next time you make a Pay Anyone payment to this person you can select them.

What information do I need about the payee to save them?

If you want to save a payee's details to your Pay Anyone payee list all you need is their account details including BSB number (six digit number), account number and account name. You will also need to create a nickname for the payee to help you identify the payee for future transfers.

What if the payee's details change?

If the payee's bank details change in future, you can easily edit the payee. Go to the "Manage billers and payees" section from the "Profile" menu. Then select the payee you wish to edit.

  • You can update the BSB number (financial institution number), account number, account name, and payee nickname.
  • Select "Save" to save your changes
  • Once you edit the payee's details it will be updated immediately within the same ANZ Internet Banking session.
Can I delete a payee?

Yes. You can delete a payee from the Pay Anyone payee list any time.

  • Go to the “Profile” menu.
  • Select “Manage payees”.
  • Select the payee you wish to delete.
  • Select the “Delete” icon
  • Select “Delete” button to delete payee immediately.

Please note that you cannot delete a payee if there is a future or recurring payment scheduled for that payee. You must first cancel the pending future or recurring payments.

If you wish to delete a future dated or recurring payment, the request must be lodged with ANZ Internet Banking prior to 11.59pm Melbourne time on the day prior to the payment date.

Does the payee need to have an ANZ account?

  • The Pay Anyone function within ANZ Internet Banking will allow you to transfer funds from your ANZ account to an account with any Australian financial institution (bank, building society, credit union, etc).
