When does Sniip process my bill payment? How long does it take? I’ve left it a bit late and I’m worried it won’t be paid on time.
It takes approximately 24 to 48 hours for Sniip to receive your funds. We process your bill payment as soon as we receive your funds.
The cut-off times for payments to be made the next business day are:
- 11.59pm AEDT Visa/Mastercard
- 6pm AEDT Amex
- 6pm AEDT Diners (+ 1 extra business day)
- 6pm AEDT Bank Accounts (+ 1 extra business day)
Payments made after this cut-off will not be processed on the next business day – they will be processed the following business day.
As the funds take roughly 24 hours to finalise and be deposited into the billers account, we suggest always paying your bill two (2) days in advance. The biller must recognise the BPAY payment as the date that the bill was paid. You may refer to the time-stamped Sniip receipt under the “Receipt” tab in the app for record/reconciliation purposes.
Can I pay to a BSB and Account Number (bank account) using Sniip?
This is a hot question and we’re working on it right now. Pay to a BSB and Account Number will be launched in Q1, 2023.
As a subscriber to Sniip, you’ll be the first to know when the feature launches.
