SMS Alert

SMS Alert notifies you of money movements in your accounts as they happen, so you can keep track of what’s happening with your money.

You can choose the following alerts:

  • Deposits greater than a selected amount – a good way to find out when your pay is in your account.
  • Withdrawals greater than a selected amount – find out when a loan repayment has been made.
  • A cheque is likely to be dishonoured – save yourself a dishonour fee by possibly fixing the problem before it happens.
  • A transaction overdraws your account – if you know as soon as you’re in the red, you can fix it quickly.
  • Available funds fall below a selected amount – for better control over your spending.
  • Online banking payments (other than BPAY transactions) greater than a selected amount.
  • A term deposit is about to mature.
