Making payments

First, log in to ANZ goMoney on your smartphone and select Payments, then Pay to Mobile.

  1. Send To
    Select from your phone’s contact list or enter the mobile number of the person you want to pay.
  2. Amount
    Enter the payment amount.
  3. Your Name
    Enter your name so the recipient knows who it’s from.
  4. Message
    You can add a message to the recipient e.g. Thanks for lunch.
  5. Pay
    Check your payment details and select Pay.
  6. Receipt
    If the recipient doesn't have ANZ goMoney, the person you are paying will receive a text message advising they’ve been sent a mobile payment to be collected and the steps they need to follow to collect it.

Remember: the money won’t be transferred to their mobile account, it will go into their chosen bank account.

Receiving payments

If the recipient also has ANZ goMoney, we’ll send the payment to their ANZ account straight away, and send them a text to let them know.

If the recipient is a non-ANZ customer or doesn’t have the ANZ goMoney mobile app, we’ll send them a text to let them know you’ve sent them a payment, and a link to our payment collection website. Once they’ve entered their mobile number, payment amount, name, account number and OnlineCode (this is a secure one-off OnlineCode that will be sent to the person's mobile once they've entered the mobile number and amount of the payment), we’ll send the money to their account. If the payment isn’t collected within seven days it will simply be returned to your account.
