What is Easy Bill Pay and how does it work?

What is Easy Bill Pay?

Easy Bill Pay is a simple way of paying your bills and paying them on time with minimal effort.

How does it work?

You identify the bills you want to pay and nominate your method of payment: bank account or credit card or debit card. We do the rest.

What bills can I pay with Easy Bill Pay?

You can use Easy Bill Pay for almost all of your bills. You can use it to pay your home loan, rent, utilities bills, car payments including insurance and registration, your phone bill, rates and strata levies, personal loans payments both secured and unsecured, Foxtel, Flexirent payments, school fees and child care fees, your ATO payments and your credit card payments.

Easy Bill Pay can pay any bill that can be paid by BPAY, bank transfer or cheque!

What do I have to do?

Easy Bill Pay does most of the work for you. All you need to do is to upload your bills and review the added bill details. We will transfer the funds to pay for these bills in accordance with your chosen method.

You can choose from two easy methods. You can either choose that we will take a top-up payment prior to each of your bills coming due, or you can use our convenient Bill Smoothing method where Easy Bill Pay will calculate a reoccurring top-up amount for you. We will take all the hard work out of bill paying but you still keep all the control.

How much will it cost me?

Our fee is only $24.95 per month, regardless of the number of bills you are paying through Easy Bill Pay. We take these fees from a credit card of your choosing.

What do I do if I want to stop using Easy Bill Pay?

You can cease using Easy Bill Pay at any time – there is no contract. Any funds in your account will be refunded back to you within three business days.

Paying bills with Easy Bill Pay

How do I add a Bill?

We make this as easy as possible for you, offering you multiple options to add your bills onto Easy Bill Pay.

  1. You can upload a bill or drag and drop it into our website. Our service will automatically populate the details of your bills and all you will need to do is to confirm.
  2. If you are using our mobile app, you can even take a picture of your bill. We will populate the details from the picture. Multiple pages? Not a problem.
  3. Have your bill in an email? You can forward that bill to your Easy Bill Pay email address and we will automatically load it onto your account for you. You will receive an email when the details are ready to be confirmed.
  4. And of course, if you would prefer, you can enter the details of your bills manually on your Easy Bill Pay account.

I have all sorts of bills – what can I do?

We have a few alternatives for this, and you can choose which one works best for you!

  1. If your bills are ongoing and the amounts do not change, you can simply add the bill frequency and the amount you want to pay for the bill, and we will make sure all payments are made on time.
  2. If the amount varies each bill (i.e. an electricity or phone bill) you can contact your provider and nominate us to receive your bills using your own personal Easy Bill Pay email address or you can simply upload the bill onto your Easy Bill Pay account as you receive the bill.
  3. We understand you may have unexpected or one-off bills, like a payment owing to your friend for a night out, or an unexpected veterinarian bill. Easy Bill Pay can also be used for all those bills that pop up. Just take a picture of the bill on your mobile, or upload the bill to your account and we will make the payment!

How will I know if my bills have been paid?

You will have online access to your Easy Bill Pay account which will show which bills have been paid, when and how much, the balance in your Easy Bill Pay Account and the next bill amount.

What happens if I want to add an extra bill or remove an existing one?

You can do this anytime through your account. We will recalculate your top-up payments accordingly.

What if I dispute my bill?

You are still responsible for verifying the accuracy of your bills and should contact your biller immediately if you believe there is an error in the amount you have been charged.

Bill Smoothing your payment cycles

Some months I get a lot of bills - what can I do?

You can add one-off bills as you receive them, either by uploading the bill to your account, or forwarding it to your Easy Bill Pay email address or by adding the details manually. This will adjust your top-up amount accordingly.

How can Bill Smoothing help me?

Throughout the year, your bill amounts can fluctuate which may cause financial stress in situations where unexpected quarterly/yearly bills come due. With Bill Smoothing, you will pay the same amount every pay cycle making your finances more manageable.  Bill smoothing is a smart way to relieve you from this stress and help you budget more effectively.

How are Bill Smoothing payments calculated?

Bill Smoothing looks at all your bills for the next year and calculates the top-up amounts needed to ensure all these bills are paid on time. Your payments won’t fluctuate and it’ll be one easy to remember amount each pay cycle.

Funding Easy Bill Pay and your bank accounts

How do I make payments to Easy Bill Pay?

Easy Bill Pay will transfer funds from your nominated debit card or credit card or direct debit your nominated bank account.

What is my primary funding account?

We will top-up your Easy Bill Pay account from your first selected funding source. This is your primary funding account.

How often will I make payments?

This depends on your preference. Either, we can transfer your payments two business days before your bill comes due. Or, you can activate Bill Smoothing and Easy Bill Pay will transfer payments on either a weekly, fortnightly or monthly cycle.

The choice is yours. This allows you to select a payment cycle which best suits your own financial position.

Can I make an extra top-up payment?

Yes, you can add funds onto your Easy Bill Pay account through BPAY or direct transfer. We will hold these funds for you to make payments towards your future bills.

What happens if my top-up payment fails?

If this happens we will inform you immediately. If you have provided us a secondary funding source, we will attempt to transfer the payment from here. If you have not provided us with a secondary funding source, or if your secondary funding source fails as well, we will contact you to schedule a top-up payment so all your bills can be paid on time. In the meantime, we will continue to make payments towards your billers with the funds still available.

Refunds and withdrawals

Can I withdraw from my Easy Bill Easy Account?

Yes, you can withdraw any funds from Easy Bill Pay that are not being held to pay your bills. This can be done using the withdrawal function.

If you need more funds back, you can pause a bill and the funds being held to pay this bill will be available for you.

What types of accounts can I deposit a withdrawal into?

You will need to select a bank account to deposit a withdrawal into, as we cannot refund onto credit cards. You can refund to any pre-nominated bank account that has been linked to your EBP account.  Alternatively you can add a new bank account for the refund.
