Always innovative

A distinctly Australian innovation, BPAY started on 18 November 1997 as a secure way to pay bills by phone. But our cutting-edge approach to technology allowed us to quickly evolve, offering bill payments over the Internet through a financial institution’s online bank.

In January 2002, we went one step further with our paperless billing system, BPAY View. Now users can view, pay and store their bills from a single location, while helping billers drive down administration, printing and distribution costs.

From our beginnings in 1997 until today, BPAY has offered Australians trusted new ways to pay — confidently, conveniently and securely.
