Meet Osko®

Soon, you'll be able to pay and get paid faster than ever before, without the hassle of cash. Osko by BPAY™ will be available shortly, and we're working hard with over 55 Financial Institutions to bring it to you in early 2018. Then we'll be rolling out to more and more Australians after that.

Fast

Osko processes payments fast, 24/7. Even on weekends. Between friends, between businesses and between financial institutions. Goodbye waiting. Hello convenience.

Convenient

You don't have to do a thing to use Osko – just stay tuned. Most of our partner banks, credit unions and building societies are building Osko into their Internet Banking and mobile banking apps so, you'll be able to send and receive your money just as simply as you would pay a friend today ... but better!

Safe

Osko is brought to you by your bank and will be available to you in your internet banking or mobile banking app. There's no need to share your bank account or card details to pay someone. And, it's backed by BPAY, so you know it can be trusted.

Easy

With a PayID you will be able to pay and get paid with something simple like a registered mobile, email or ABN. Your financial institution will let you know which options are available for you to use, how and when you'll be able to register. Of course, you can still use a BSB and account number. You can read more about it here: www.payid.com.au

Handy

You'll be able to include up to 280 characters including emoji's in your description. Each time you pay with Osko, you'll see your description almost immediately in your online transaction record, marked with Osko, and the person you're paying will see the message just as quick

Sending money to friends and family

Maybe it's a fashion emergency. Maybe it's a real emergency. Whatever the reason, Osko gives you the security of knowing you can send money to loved ones - fast - without any of the usual hassle.

Splitting bills after a night out

You had the $10 parmy. Your friend had the lobster. The restaurant 'doesn't do' split bills. Awkward. With Osko, you'll can pay your half of the bill instantly. No more chasing for money, or being chased.

Getting paid

If you're a tradie, a lot of your business is emergencies - leaking pipes, leaking cars, leaking ants (don't even ask). People don't keep much cash on hand these days, but with Osko you can get paid faster as a business.

So get used to saying the name. Osko Payments is just the beginning. We've already built Osko Requests which will be coming next!

FAQs

Everybody's favourite part of a website. The questions you weren't sure about asking or didn't even know to ask... all here, for your reading pleasure.

How will Osko work with my bank?

Over 50 financial institutions will be offering Osko over the coming months, including the Big 4 banks. You don’t have to do anything in the meantime – just stay tuned to find out when Osko will be available to you.

What types of PayID can I use?

PayID makes payments simpler by using an easy to remember identifier, like a phone number, email address, or ABN (Australian Business Number). The PayID types available to you depends on who you bank with. If a financial institution does not support all PayID types, customers can still make and receive payments using a BSB and account number.

Are faster payments safe?

The New Payments Platform uses world leading technology certified to the highest data security standards and monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All payments made on the platform are also subject to participating financial institutions’ own real-time fraud screening and detection capabilities. As always, consumers should remain alert to the possibility of cons and scams particularly if they receive unexpected requests via social media, emails or SMS for urgent payments or account information.
