Lower costs, added security

Payments are transacted bank-to-bank, with no card networks involved. This means lower costs, fewer lost customers due to card expiry, and added security.

Convenient for you and your customers

Payments are initiated by you, the merchant, so you can control exactly when you get paid. The entire process can be automated, reducing the time and effort required to chase and reconcile late payments. For customers, that means avoiding missed payments, late fees, and service interruptions. It’s a win-win!

Accept payments from more customers

Because payments are bank-to-bank, you won’t be limited by card networks. Anyone with an Australian bank account is able to pay securely using BECS Direct Debit.
