We understand that every business wants to save time. Now you can by using BPAY Batch in Online Business Banking at Bankwest.


What is BPAY® Batch?

Quite simply, it’s a new service feature available through Online Business Banking. It allows you to make multiple BPAY payments to one or more billers, at one time, in one single transaction using a file upload.


Benefits to you and your Business

BPAY Batch saves your business time and money by streamlining accounts payable processes, allowing for reinvestment of time in value-add business activities.


Completing a BPAY® Batch Payment in Online Business Banking

To complete a BPAY Batch Payment, start by logging into Online Business Banking. Proceed by selecting ‘Make a payment’ located under ‘Payments & transfers’ in the left hand side menu. Select ‘File Upload’, followed by ‘BPAY - File Upload’ in the drop down menu.



On the screen that follows, press the ‘select file’ button to proceed with your file upload.


Once the file has been uploaded successfully, the payment details will become visible. Confirm the details if correct, and proceed to viewing your payment receipt.



Important Information

The file must carry an extension of .txt or .csv (lower case).

The current maximum number of payments per file is capped at 200.

Check with your software vendor* to confirm their support of the Bankwest BPAY Batch functionality.


*While a number of software vendors have built the capability directly into their offering, BPAY has also launched a separate accounting package module to create a BPAY Batch file called BPAY BatchMaker. Currently this module is available to Quickbook users, with development work underway with other software vendors. Please visit the BPAY website for additional information.

Hi Pete,

Could you please provide a sample BPAY Batch file, so I can see the format?


Alternatively, the specifications for this format if you have them.
