Use a PayID within the security on your online banking for fast, secure payments between Australian financial institutions, available on both The Mutual App and Internet Banking.

A PayID is an alias for your account BSB and account number which acts as an easier, safer and quicker way for you to send and receive money.

Available at more than 100 Australian financial institutions, PayID is fast, simple, secure, and helps you to check and validate the name of the payee to ensure your money is going to the right person or business before you press ‘send’.

Perfect to use when dining with friends and your favourite restaurant doesn’t split bills, transferring money to family or friends, paying rent or collecting money for a group gift.

A PayID doesn’t replace your BSB and account number, but it is easier for you to remember and when your PayID is used, payments happen almost instantly.

PayID can be used 24/7, between different financial institutions and it makes it easy for you to check and validate the name of the payee ensure you are sending money to the right person.
