Recurring BPAY® payments change effective 15th January 2012
As part of changes to BPAY®, as of 15th January 2012, you will no longer be able to set up recurring scheduled payments for a number of billers who issue a variable Customer Reference Number (vCRN).
Which payments will be affected?
Only billers who issue a variable Customer Reference Numbers (vCRN), which is when the Customer Reference Numbers (CRNs) changes with each bill you receive. When you make a payment using BPAY®, you as the payer are identified by a CRN, which appears on your bill. This is the number that you enter into BPAY® for your payment to be identified and reconciled by the biller. A biller will use a vCRN when they need to be able to track payments relating to specific periods, bills or invoices.
From 15th January 2012 onward, you will no longer be able to set up recurring scheduled payments in Internet Banking to billers who issue a vCRN. This is to ensure quick and accurate BPAY® reconciliation.
To continue making BPAY® payments to billers using a vCRN, you will need to cancel any existing recurring payments that have been set up previously using the vCRN and enter these as one-off transactions going forward. You will still be able to use your saved biller details, however the vCRN will need to be entered manually each time.
