Create a PayID with a mobile number – business customers

ANZ Internet Banking for Business administrators can link a mobile number, email address or ABN/ACN to an eligible bank account to use as a PayID. This PayID can be used to receive secure payments quickly on behalf of the business.

To create a PayID using a mobile number, an administrator will need an eligible bank account and a mobile number to link it to.

How do I create a PayID with a mobile number?

To create a PayID, you’ll need to be logged in to ANZ Internet Banking.

  • Select “Manage PayIDs”.
  • Select “Create a new PayID”.

Step 1 – Select mobile number as the PayID type

  • Select “Mobile number” from the list of available PayID types.
  • Then select “Next”.

Step 2 – Select or add a mobile number

  • You can either;
    • Select the mobile number from the list of available numbers to be used as a PayID, or;
    • Enter a mobile number to be used as a PayID.
    • Note: you’ll need to verify your ownership of the mobile number you select or enter to use as a PayID.
    • Note: the mobile number displayed on this page is the mobile number saved in your ANZ business profile.
  • Select “Next”.
  • Note: Each mobile number can only be used to create one PayID. If a mobile number is greyed out and can’t be selected it’s because it’s already been used to create a PayID.

Step 3 – Select an account to link to the mobile number

  • Select the eligible account that your business will receive payments to.
  • Then, either;
    • Confirm the name that will be displayed for payee receipts and confirmations sent to your business’ PayID, or;
    • Select the name that will be displayed for payee receipts and confirmations sent to your business’ PayID (if there is more than one available name).
  • Then select “Next”.
  • Note: The name/s displayed on this page are the name saved in your business profile and the name associated with the selected account. If these names are the same only one name will be displayed.
  • Note: Bank accounts that appear greyed out on this screen cannot be selected as they aren’t eligible to be linked to a PayID. Find out about PayID eligible accounts.

Step 4 – Enter the verification code

  • A verification code will be sent to the mobile number being used to create your business’ PayID. If a verification code isn’t sent to this number within a few minutes, select “Resend” to request a new code.
  • Enter the verification code into the field marked “Verification code”.
  • Then select “Next”.

Step 5 – Submission

  • Your request to create a PayID should now be submitted.
  • Carefully read the information provided on this page, then either;
    • Select “Done” to return to the “Manage PayIDs” page, or;
    • Select “How to use your PayID” to learn more about how to use your business’ PayID.

Step 6 – Completion

  • You will receive a message to the business’ ANZ Internet Banking contact details when your PayID has been successfully created and is ready to use. This should only take a few minutes, but can take up to a few hours in peak times.
  • Your business can now receive fast and secure payments to the mobile number that you’ve used to create your business’ PayID.
