Pay or receive money from anyone without a BSB
Customers of three of the big four banks will be able to have money transfers settle in less than a minute.

The Commonwealth Bank, Westpac and NAB have begun rolling out the near real-time payment system while the ANZ is doing some final testing.

Experts say the new payment platform is a landmark change to infrastructure.
Mark Williams, chief development officer at BPAY group, told 3AW Breakfast it would make it a lot easier, and quicker, to do money transfers.
“So what the new payment platform does is it allows you to do that (transfer money) between banks,” he said.
