How to Pay BPAY with a Credit Card and Earn Points

What is BPAY?

BPAY is an electronic bill payment system in Australia. BPAY allows you to make payments via internet or telephone banking to organisations who are registered BPAY billers.

Can I use BPAY using my credit card?

Yes you can, but you should check if you are being charged as a purchase or a cash advance. Some banks may allow you to use BPAY with your credit card if the biller does not accept credit card payments. But the transaction will be treated as a cash advance and you will be charged a cash advance fee.

One way to get around this is for your business, is to use B2Bpay to pay your BPAY invoices.  We already have over 30,000 suppliers with a BPAY Biller code set up in our sytem. And if you can’t find your Biller or Supplier on this list, simply select ‘Add new biller’ and enter their details.

How does B2Bpay work?

B2Bpay forwards your payment to your biller by BPAY – the same way as if you paid them direct. By using B2Bpay your credit card issuer will identify the payment as a ‘general’ payment meaning that you will earn full credit card points on that transaction, plus it won’t be treated as a cash advance.

Is BPAY or bank transfer faster?

If you are using B2Bpay to make a BPAY payment, you will need to allow 3 business days for the payment to be made. If you are paying a supplier directly via EFT, the funds will usually land in their account instantly or within 1 business day.

How can I earn rewards with BPAY using my credit card?

By using B2Bpay to make a BPAY payment, the payment will be classified as ‘General Spend’ and you will earn your FULL Credit Card reward points on the payment. What’s more, you’ll earn additional Qantas Points (1 point per $100 paid) on top of this (via your Qantas Business Rewards Account).
