I am buying a property so will need to make a large payment (around $230k) in a month's time. I have read through the payments information on the BankWest site and I would normally use RTGS I think, however I live in Canberra and so my nearest customer branches are in Sydney.
I don't see a way to make this payment online due to the $50k daily limit, other than making multiple payments which could be awkward. Am I able to go to another bank and draw a bank cheque from my BankWest account?
Thanks for any ideas,

Well @rhubarbcliffs, you've got even me scratching my head for a solution to this question, and that's saying something!
The *only* possible idea I can think of is that the BWA Business Banking Centre on Northbourne Avenue *might* be able to help with the RTGS transaction given the lack of Consumer banking facilities in Canberra and the size of the transaction, but that's something the crack sqaud of Forum Admins are going to need to help get an answer on - or come up with an alternative option.

This is actually nice and easy to do. For our remote/international customers we have a form to fill out and email through for us to process for you. Make sure when you fill it out you put the mobile number that we already have on file for you and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org Our team will then give you a call to identify you and complete the transaction. You should plan ahead and start the process a few days before payment is due to avoid delays.
Hope this helps!

@PeteW: Can I suggest talking with the relevant stakeholders, to get updates to http://www.bankwest.com.au/personal/payments-services/moving-your-money/payments-in-australia?tab=rt... and http://www.bankwest.com.au/personal/payments-services/moving-your-money/payment-cut-off-times; to 1) provide a link to the form you've added in your post, and 2) clarify that alert native options are available if there aren't Bankwest stores near the customer who wishes to use RTGS?
