SMS and email alerts
You can easily monitor your account activity with our unlimited SMS and email alerts. This way you’ll know when deposits have been made to your account or when your balance has changed – you set them up to meet your needs and make your banking easy.
|Deposit account balance above a set amount
||You will receive an SMS or email alert (or both) when your account balance exceeds a limit that you have pre-set. Useful if you are saving for a goal. |
|Deposit account balance below a set amount
||You will receive an SMS or email alert (or both) when your account balance falls below a limit that you have pre-set. This helps you avoid overdrawing your account. |
|A deposit equal to or exceeding a nominated amount
||You will receive an SMS or email alert (or both) when a deposit is made to your account that is equal to or greater than an amount that you have pre-set. This is useful if you want to know when your pay hits your account, or you are waiting for a specific deposit. |
