    Default Paying bills with bpay

    Hello. I'm wanting to start paying my electricity/phone and water bills fortnightly through bpay am I able to just transfer money over to each bill each fortnight without having to ring them and let them know and then they can take the amount off the next bill? I'm trying to do it so I can keep on top of my bills.

    If I ever pay extra on a bill it's just taken off the next bill, so I'm guessing it will be ok. The only time I've had an issue was when I was paying either water rates or council rates and I wanted to pay quarterly. Because I paid just over the quarter amount, they took it as an underpaid half amount. But power, gas, phone, etc have been fine

    You can set up bill smoothing where they take money from your account fortnightly and you don't get a bill. I prefer it this way

    you can pay whatever you like into bpay whenever you like. The numbers you get are unique to your account so they never change. I have an auto pay go into my electricity account every week with bpay you dont need to call and let them know it will just come off your bills. I do it this way because I really dislike direct debits and I can chose what does and doesnt come out without having to make phone calls

    I pay a portion of all of my bills monthly and have never had an issue, usually when my bill arrives it's either in credit (which is a lovely surprise) or only a few $ oweing. I set up my rates to pay quarterly and pay monthly and there are no issues.

    Opps silly fat fingers was not finished.....
    Anyway, when I get it a bill, even if it still has an amount owing it will say nothing is due because of the setup payments.
