You gotta change it!
All the other banks are allowing email addresses and Bankwest is going to be late into the game.
Bankwest customer demographics are not old people loyal to one bank all their lives, thats not your target market. Many of us have multiple bank accounts and have already used our mobile numbers for PayID with other institutions.
If you wont give us what we want and what the other banks are offering, what do you think will happen?
Pass on my feedback to anyone who will listen please.

I signed up for pay ID using another financial institution. This is because I have multiple accounts with multiple financial institutions. Does this mean I can’t use the same mobile number for my payID with Bankwest??
Also, now that I have set up pay ID with my other financial institution, how do I send money using payID from Bankwest to this account? Or does Bankwest have to activate it first before this can be done? Because if this is the case, it’s pretty simple because it will make things more complicated having to first find out if the senders bank allows PayID before providing them your pay id details...

Yep, you nailed it with stupid.
We cant send any money to or from a Bankwest account using PayID until Bankwest implement the system. BankWest are going to be one of the last banks to allow PayID and they intend to only allow a mobile number as a PayID reference.
Most of the other banks that have already implemented PayID allow email addresses or mobile numbers to be used.
Bankwest are now officially behind the times, they will implement a delayed and inferior system that is not what their customers want.

I'm sorry you feel this way @Jamesk811 @kenh2003. Bankwest will be introducing the New Payment Platform (NPP) in the coming months - we're taking a little extra time to prepare so it's a smooth and seamless experience for our customers. Whilst we will be launching only mobile numbers at this stage, if this does change we will make sure to let our customers know. I do apologise for any disappointment this may cause.

Why only mobile numbers it seems rediculous when the system is set up for mobiles, emails, ABN just update your technology you’ve had years to prepare for this and have known its not just phone numbers. Disappointed coz I use this account to collect rent and bills money from all my flat mates.
Oh wel, you better still be processing transfers to bsb and account numbers using fast payments in real time like the other banks do?
I won’t be able to set up a pay id with you I’ve already used my phone number for another bank.

Bankwest have totally stuffed this up here.
Reality is BankWest r owned by CBA. CBA r doing Pay ID with mobiles and emails as references.
Easy as, working perfectly.
i have ING and NAB, Pay ID working perfectly.
It works perfectly as is.
the Pay ID system was piloted with bank employees for almost a year before it was launched.
The responses we r getting from Bankwest r unjustified.
They r deliberately withholding Pay ID from us right now.
is it a tactic to dissolve Bankwest and drive us to CBA? Maybe remember Bankwest was bought by CBA in a fire sale from the Bank (maybe Royal) Bank of Scotland, when it went bust after the GFC. Part of that deal was that the 2 businesses had to be run independently for a number of years.
thise of us loyal to Bankwest r like that cos we r anti Big 4.
Can we not be empowered consumers and show them the power of the people and campaign Bankwest to give us what we want.
Help me fight the system
