NPP Troubleshooting FAQ's

Although NPP payments are usually received in near real-time, there can be a delay of up to two hours.

If you have not received a payment after two hours, contact the sender and ask them to confirm the transfer details were correct and that the payment was successfully sent from their account (and did not bounce back). If they have confirmed the transfer details were correct and the payment did not bounce back, the sender will need to investigate the missing payment with their Financial Institution.

Heritage is unable to trace NPP payments that have been sent from other Financial Institutions.

Ensure you have the latest version of the Heritage App, by checking in either the App Store (Apple) or Play Store (Android).

If your App is up to date, the Financial Institution you are transferring the funds to may not accept NPP payments. You will still have the option to transfer funds via direct entry (taking up to 2 business days).

You must close your PayID if:

  • You no longer have authority to use it e.g. if you’ve changed your mobile number or email address; or,
  • If you no longer wish to receive payments to your PayID.

Check that your PayID is in an active state (not locked) to enable it to be closed.

To do this go to the PayID menu in the Heritage Mobile Banking App.

If you are still having trouble closing a PayID please contact us.

Check that your PayID is in an active state (not locked) to transfer it to another financial institution or other Heritage Bank account.

To do this go to the PayID menu in the app.

If you are still having trouble please call us on 13 14 22 or visit your nearest branch for assistance. 

At Heritage, we assign you a PayID Shortname, based on your legal account name. This varies between financial institutions.
By law, you are required to return the funds to the sender if you are certain the funds aren’t yours.  If you do not believe the funds are meant for you please contact Heritage on 13 14 22.
