Features & Benefits of Text alerts

  • You can choose to have Text alerts sent either daily or weekly.
  • You choose which business accounts you receive Text alerts for.
  • Each text gives you your balance and up to last six recent transactions.
  • You can nominate another user to receive your texts.

We’ll send Text alerts between 7am and 10am and you can choose to receive them daily (Monday-Friday) or weekly. For weekly alerts, you choose which day of the week suits you best.

**If you receive Text alerts while overseas you are responsible to ensure it is lawful to receive Text alerts in the country you are in and your mobile provider may charge. To avoid this charge you can pause text alerts at any time, meaning you won't receive alerts while you're away. You can do this in Internet Banking once you're registered for Text alerts.

Occasionally we may need to carry out essential maintenance to Online for Business, resulting in some interruption to the service.
