pay,com.au at the moment is quite bare bones, no BPAY or ABA payments available yet

Looks like pay.com.au now do BPay. They've also introduced another feature (sometime between early October and mid November) where the transaction on my CC statement now shows up as the actual recipient rather than pay.com.au, which is rather handy. It does still show up with pay.com.au's suburb rather than the recipient's suburb, but I can live with that.

Eg. instead of saying "pay.com.au Elsternwick ELSTERNWICK AU", transactions may now show as "ATO ELSTERNWICK AU".

Have two large payments coming up to companies which only accept EFT. Anyone got a solution for Amex payment to EFT? Sounds like pay.com.au might but they also state you need an ABN to create an account.

I've been using rewardpay for almost 2 years now. Now that I just found this thread, I'm wondering what I've been missing all these years. So from a brief readthrough, pay.com.au and sniip is a better option?

I have a large bill coming up to pay soon, however they only accept direct deposit (bank transfer). Can anyone recommend a platform that I can use to pay for this on my Amex or visa?

I understand EBP used to be good for this but they are not taking on new clients anymore.

I use Bluechain (ABN needed and they'll go through all sorts of Due Diligence checks before on-boarding you) - they're not the cheapest but clear Amex charges and get funds transfers across pretty quickly. Agree EBP doesn't appear to be signing up new customers anymore and the processing costs on transfers over $20,000 per month make Amex 2.7% + GST which is way higher than anyone else in the market.

Unfortunately the bill is not business related so I don’t think I can use Yakpay? Is there any platforms similar to EBP around?

If I pay with amex via pay.com.au, do we earn point twice? first one is amex point, and 2nd one is qantas point in pay.com rewards system?

It appears that to get the extra pay.com.au points, you need to pay an additional surcharge on top of the normal processing fee for the card you’re using (PayRewards - pay.com.au)
There are two tiers that you can earn PayPoints on:

VIP – Earn 1 PayPoint for every $1 you process through pay.com.au. Pay only 1.0% ex GST on top of your pay.com.au processing fee.

VIP Premier – Earn 2 PayPoints for every $1 you process through pay.com.au. Pay only 1.8% ex GST on top of your pay.com.au processing fee.

PayRewards points from pay.com.au can now be transferred to KrisFlyer (as an alternative to QBR).

Edit to add: I just linked my KrisFlyer account and transferred same PayRewards points across. The KrisFlyer miles landed in my account pretty much instantly.

Anybody consistently using Yak Pay still? I have not used it for >2yrs but given intl flying is a goer again time to cultivate pts.

It appears to me YP still most competitive for Visa - currently 1%.1% incl GST - going to 1.32% incl GST April - anything cheaper around?

I have been using Yp only when I cannot use Sniip. Their service has been great.
