What has happened to my Pay Anyone Password?

If you register your membership for SMS Services, SMS Security replaces your Pay Anyone Password as the method of authentication. 

This means that if you had a Pay Anyone Password but choose to register for SMS Banking Services in Heritage Online, your Pay Anyone Password will be replaced and you will no longer be able to complete functions using this password. 

Please note that although it is not a requirement to sign up for SMS Services, you can only have a Pay Anyone Password OR SMS services, not both.

If you have mistakenly registered for SMS Services and wish to reactivate your Pay Anyone Password, please contact us on 13 14 22. 

How do I add a new Heritage or Inter-bank Payee (a new transfer destination)?

Heritage Online

In Heritage Online, the Pay Anyone process is streamlined. To perform a transfer to a new destination, simply enter the details of the new destination into the fields provided.

The system will automatically detect that it's a new payee and ask for the appropriate authentication. This will be either a Pay Anyone Password or a One Time Password depending on your settings.

How do I view my Visa Authorisations or my Payments in Advance/Loan Details?

Heritage Online has introduced the “I Need To…” and “I’d Like To…” panels. These panels are located on the right hand of the screen and the options available change depending on your membership characteristics, and the page that you are viewing.

Two options that are likely to be useful are “View Visa Authorisations” and “View Loan Details”. These two can be found in the “I’d Like To...” panel and they will only appear if you are viewing transactions for an account for which this option is relevant.

For example, if you view transactions for an account with a credit or debit card attached, the option to “View Visa Authorisations” will be visible. If you view transactions for any loan account, the option to “View loan/Line of Credit Details” will appear. Many other options that used to appear under the “A/C DETAILS” menu are now contained under the “I’d Like To…” panel, including viewing details of a term deposit, or finding the available balance breakdown of an account.

What are the fees for using my Visa debit or credit card overseas?

Refer to our Fees and Limits guide for overseas currency conversion fee and overseas ATM or counter withdrawal fee information.
