PayID is the name of the New Payments Platform addressing service. It’s a function of the platform that allows consumers to link financial accounts to easy-to-remember pieces of information such as phone numbers and email addresses.

Users will be able to provide their PayID to people or organisations they wish to receive payments from. It’s about simplifying the payments process by using information that is easier to remember than traditional BSB and account numbers.

Consumers and businesses can create a PayID with their participating financial institution. At the same time, organisations developing a service or product supported by the platform, may wish to use the PayID functionality as part of their service offering.
