Why can’t I edit a BSB and Account number?

You cannot edit a BSB and Account number if you have future or recurring payment/s scheduled to it.

  • For example, if you have recurring payments scheduled for a payee’s BSB and Account number, that BSB and Account number cannot be edited.
  • You must first cancel any scheduled payments to that BSB and Account number.

If you wish to edit 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.

What is a payment type?

A payment type is the identifier that you address your payment to. 

A payment type can be a BSB and Account number, phone number, email address, ABN/ACN or Organisation ID (Org ID) that is linked to a bank account.

What is a PayID?

A PayID is a simplified payment address that’s linked to a bank account and capable of receiving payments. 

ANZ allows you to link a mobile number, email address or ABN/ACN with an eligible ANZ bank account to create a PayID. 

ANZ allows payments to PayID mobile numbers, email addresses, ABN/ACNs and Organisation IDs (Org IDs).

How do I replace a payment type?

To replace a payment type for a payee, you’ll need to remove the existing payment type and add a new payment type.

Please note when replacing the only payment type for a payee, you’ll need to add the new payment type before deleting the existing payment type to avoid deleting the payee.

Why can’t I edit a payment type?

If you can’t edit a payment type it is likely to be because you have future dated payments scheduled to it. To edit this payment type you’ll need to cancel these payments.

Do I need to edit/remove a payment type if it’s no longer valid?

If a payment type is no longer valid or no longer reflects your payee’s details you should remove it from your payee’s list of payment types or edit it to reflect the updated information.

Learn how to remove a payment type

If you don’t delete or update a payment type that no longer reflects your payee’s details, any payments sent to this payment type could either;

  • Be unsuccessful as the payment type is invalid, or;
  • Be sent to an unintended recipient rather than your intended payee, as the payment type may have since been registered by another person.
