And if one of your billers is not already on this list, simply select ‘Add new biller’ and provide their details. B2Bpay forwards your payment to your biller by EFT or BPAY – the same way as if you paid them direct. Some restrictions apply based on standard credit card rules; for example, you cannot use a credit card to pay for finance or credit, to make payments to yourself or a related business entity or for illegal activities.
What payment methods are accepted?
You can pay all your billers using your existing credit or debit card. B2Bpay accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners Club. You can use the same card to pay all your billers, or nominate different cards for particular billers. The ‘My Wallet’ page enables you to maintain and manage the cards you use to pay your billers.
What if my biller doesn’t accept credit card?
That’s not a problem. One of the benefits of B2Bpay is that you can pay all your billers using your credit card – even if your biller doesn’t accept credit card directly or makes paying by card difficult. This is because B2Bpay passes on your payment to your biller by BPAY or Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) in the same way as if you paid them yourself.
How do I know if my biller has received my payment?
B2Bpay passes on your payment to your biller within 3 business days. On your ‘Payment History’ page under “Settlement Date” is the date that your payment settles to your biller.

The applicable card processing fee replaces any surcharge or MSF charged by the biller and the fee is displayed when you add your card details and before you confirm a one-off payment.

Different fees (or no fees) may apply with some billers. When you use B2Bpay to receive payments, there is no cost to you (unless you choose to absorb the card processing fees).
What payment reports are available?
On your ‘Payment History’ page you can view comprehensive details of all your payments made using B2Bpay. You can filter payments by processing date, settlement (to your biller) date and even report on all payments this month / financial year / etc.
If required, you can download your payment history to a CSV file (Excel) or an OFX file to integrate with systems including Xero and MYOB (this is only required if you haven’t connected your accounting software and need to manually record payments).
What is the ‘B2Bpay Clearing Account’?
This is an account that is automatically created in your software system when you connect the software system to B2Bpay. It is used as a virtual account to ensure that we can correctly allocate and reconcile the payments (both the bill amount and the processing fee) in your software system. You do not need to perform any reconciliation actions in your B2Bpay Clearing Account.
When you make a payment, three transactions will be created in the B2Bpay Clearing Account – one for the total amount charged to your card and two contra transactions, split into the bill amount (to mark the bill as paid) and the B2Bpay processing fee (to record the processing fee as an Expense).
What do I need to do to reconcile when I make a payment?
Not much! Our integration will automatically record and reconcile your payment of the bill and the B2Bpay processing fee (as an Expense). The only action you need to do in your software system is to reconcile the total transaction amount in your Payment Account – this is the account in your software system that you selected for B2Bpay to record payments that you make.
How do I earn reward points?
Credit card reward points: Use a credit card with a rewards program and you’ll earn credit card reward points (or airline points) every time you pay a bill using B2Bpay. Points are earned as per the terms of your card’s reward program and are added to your credit card rewards points balance, just like when you make everyday purchases using your card. By using B2Bpay, you earn reward points at the full rate when you pay all billers including the ATO, government agencies, telco, insurance and utilities. This means you will earn more points using B2Bpay than if you paid these billers directly because with many cards, you earn no or half as many points when you pay these billers directly. Qantas Points; Your business can earn 1 Qantas Point for every $100 paid through B2Bpay. In addition, earn up to 3 Qantas Points for every $1.50 paid with our large network of Bonus Billers*. These points are displayed on your ‘Payment History’ and ‘Points History’ pages and your current points total is displayed in the top right of every page.
