What is the status of my payment?

When a payment is made through Sniip it automatically goes into the processing stage. This component of the transaction utilises the BPAY scheme.

The cut-off times for Sniip to receive your payment for processing the following business day are as follow:

  • American Express: 5pm AEST
  • Visa/Mastercard debit: 5pm AEST
  • Visa/Mastercard credit: 11:59pm AEST

Please note: Diners Club cards and pay from Bank Account require one additional day processing time. As such, the cut-off time for two business day processing is 5pm AEST.

Funds take roughly 24 hours to finalise and be deposited into the billers account so we suggest always paying your bill 2 business 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 receipt under the “Receipt” tab for record/reconciliation purposes.
