Processing international payments
Important notes about processing international payments with PaymentsPlus.
- Unless you have made alternative arrangements with Westpac, the exchange rate that is applicable to your payments will depend on the day the transaction is processed. The daily rate is available here. Foreign exchange rates are updated daily and are available from 8:00am AEST.
- Other banks may convert the proceeds and impose additional fees and charges. For further information, please contact us on 131 032 (option 5), Monday to Friday 8:00am - 6pm AEST. For USD payments, the intermediary bank may deduct USD$5 from the payment. Please contact the beneficiary to find out if other charges will also apply.
- Once a file is authorised, payments will typically be processed within 1-3 business days but can sometimes take longer.
