Hi @Jadiebee, thanks for reaching out.

To receive funds into your Bankwest account, you will need to provide the following info:

• Bank: Bankwest
• Your BSB and Account Number
• Bank Address: Either your local branch address (if known and still open) or 300 Murray Street, Perth WA 6000


It's also important to note that there is a non-refundable $10 Inward Order Payment fee for each deposit received from an overseas institution. Also, in some cases it may be necessary for the banks involved to utilise the services of a 'correspondent' bank to assist in the transfer. As banks do not hold offices in every country, it is necessary to establish reciprocal agreements with a representative bank that may assist in getting the funds transferred successfully to their destination.

If a correspondent bank is needed for assistance in the transfer, they are entitled to charge a fee for their services. This could mean that you may receive a lesser amount in your account than what the sender had originally sent. Other bank fees and agent fees are unknown to us, and therefore out of our control.
