It is certainly not a coincidence that Bankwest have launched the ability to receive funds while neglecting to allow fast processing of transferring funds out of Bankwest.
The original timeline for near realtime transferring of funds was the end of 2016. This initiative of NPP has been a multi year endevour that didn't sneak up on Bankwest. While putting systems in place to support this is complex, Bankwest have clearly taken the view that as there was no real penalty for not launching there is no commercial imperitive to invest in ensuring a prompt launch.
Here we have the result. A late, half launch and no indication on when they will be in full compliance with the NPP.

Seriously Bankwesk? You've had people asking about when the NPP is coming for months, and the best you've managed so far is 'soon - in the coming months'', until the day it actually arrives and you say 'it's here'. You should have said 'it's half here'. The other half is coming 'soon - in the coming months'. What's the point of this forum? It's obviously not a means of communication. That would involve you communicating with your customers. Have you heard there's a royal commication into the financial sector? Not sure if management has communicated that to you yet, but there's a reason for the commission existing. You guys have completely lost touch with your customers. You've forgotton how to communicate. It's called being reactive rather than proactive.
