MULTIPLE MESSAGES: Some members have received old text or email messages from Horizon. Please disregard them. We apologise for any inconvenience.
OSKO by BPAYTM is a new way to pay within our Online Banking that’s as fast as cash – without the hassle of cash. Whether you’re paying a babysitter, splitting a bill or giving money to family for something urgent – the
money will be there in minutes. Osko by BPAY is the first consumer service to be built on the New Payments Platform and enables real time payments. Osko is available all day, everyday and allows payments to be sent and received in minutes. You can also use 280 characters of text to describe who’s getting paid and why. To acces Osko, just use our Online Banking or Horizon Bank mobile app.
When you make an Osko transaction you will see it displayed as Osko Debit or Osko Credit in your transaction history and statements.
A “PayID” is a smart address for NPP payments, created by linking your Horizon account to a recognisable and memorable piece of information that you use in everyday life – such as your phone number, email address or ABN (if you’re a business). A PayID can only be linked to one account at a time, but you can have multiple PayIDs linking to one account.
Go to Online Banking and click on My Preferences > Manage PayID Choose your mobile number or email address – whichever you want to be linked to your PayID.
Choose the account you wish to link your PayID to. Your PayID is not used to pay money from your account. It’s used as the destination for sending funds.
Click on Get SMS so that a verification code is sent to your mobile phone. If you’re using your email address for your PayID, you will receive the verification code via email. Enter that verification code. Read and accept the terms and conditions. Choose Create.
Your PayID can be given to other people for them to make a payment in real time to you.
You can use another person’s PayID to make a payment in real time to them via Online Banking or Mobile Banking.
Yes, BSB and account numbers are still in use. PayID doesn’t replace or eliminate your BSB and account number – you can still use them for receiving payments to your account. PayID is simply a new additional way to identify your account for payments.
To ensure the name displayed reasonably and accurately represents you, your PayID name is restricted to a system-generated name based on your validated account details.
No. You can link multiple PayIDs to one account. For joint accounts, all account holders may register their mobile numbers as PayIDs on the account. Each PayID must be unique across the NPP (i.e. only active on one account at any time).
You can create a PayID using your mobile number or email address for receiving Osko payments through Online Banking and Mobile Banking. You can create a PayID using your business name’s ABN at any Horizon branch.
We will not create a PayID for you without your prior consent and acceptance of our PayID Conditions of Use.
You can create as many as you like, as long as you can prove to us that that you are the rightful owner of the information (such as the mobile number or email address) you nominate as your PayID.
Yes, multiple PayID types can be linked to the same account. For example you could link an email PayID and a phone number PayID to the same account.
PayID payments can only be made from Online Banking and Mobile Banking. This means the same level of security that protects your existing account transactions, will also protect your PayID transactions.

No, you do not need to register or create a PayID in order to perform an Osko Payment. You will need BSB, account number and account name. You are, however, encouraged to create a PayID as it is more secure and easier to remember.
To make changes to your Security Options please sign into Online Banking. Select ‘Services & Help’ > ‘Setup Security Options’. After you’ve made changes to your security options you can expect to receive a code via SMS to your mobile phone to use to authorise transactions or changes to contact details.
When you’re setup you will see the Osko payment option whenever you’re making a payment to a participating institution.
If you have set up a PayID on an account with another financial institution, you will need to contact the other financial institution and change the status to transferable, so that your PayID can be transferred to Horizon.
If you wish to transfer your PayID to another financial institution, you will need to log onto Online Banking or Mobile Banking and transfer your PayID. You then have 14 days to transfer this to another account. If no action is taken after 14 days, the PayID will revert back to active.
