BPAY is an electronic Bill payment system in Australia which enables payments to be made through a financial institution’s online, mobile or telephone banking facility to organisations which are registered BPAY billers
Palace manages this for you but there are a couple of things to set up.
Firstly, Make sure you enter your BPAY ID Code you have received from your bank into your System Bank account section of Palace.
Go to File, System Bank Account (Note: you will need your system password for this section)
Enter your code under the BPAY ID section
Setting Up BPAY for Creditor Payments
Set up the Creditor as normal, making sure the payment type is Direct Deposit.
Right click on the Creditor and choose Bank Accounts
In Bank accounts, the BSB should have (7) 0's and the Account Number (7) 0's.
Account name can have anything, e.g BPAY or the Company name.
The BPAY Biller Code is the crucial part. It must have the accurate Biller Code.
Fill in the Invoice Creditor screen as normal, but the full BPAY Reference Number needs to be entered in the Inv. No. field. This is a specific number relating to the Invoice. (This is not creditor BPAY number)
NOTE: If you are Barcode scanning or using an outside scanning source, this number will automatically be picked up and brought through
Paying the Creditor by BPAY
Generate the Creditor payments as normal, process and click on Online. When you go to generate the file, drop down the bank account list and select the BPAY option.
