Westpac's Direct from Account® integrates with your payment platform - giving Westpac customers the ability to securely make online payments directly from their bank accounts. They simply login to authenticate themselves, select their account then pay without ever leaving the website. No scheme credit or debit card is required. Easy.
In 2018 Westpac formed a pioneering partnership with Datacom to support their innovative payment method known as Datacom Real Time Debit©, which is offered to Westpac customers looking to making online payments on a Datacom provided gateway service.
If a Westpac customer chooses Datacom Real Time Debit as a payment option, the payment request will be managed via the secure authentication process with Westpac's Direct from Account service.
Other banks are now also participating in this service, meaning more customers than ever before are choosing to make payments in this way - and looking for businesses who have the capability to accept them.
