You can make electronic payments by preparing an electronic payment file and sending the file to your bank for processing (for example, using online banking software provided by your bank). Contact your bank for more information on how to send electronic payment files for processing.
Electronic payment files contain the payment information for your bank to process, including your bank details, your payees’ bank details and the amounts you want to pay.
Before you can prepare an electronic payment file, you need to complete the electronic payment setup tasks. For more information, see Set up electronic payments.
You record payments you want to make electronically in the Spend Money window or the Pay Bills window. You cannot record electronic payments in the Bank Register window.
When recording payments, you need to specify that the payment is to be made electronically by selecting the Group with Electronic Payments option.
