Centrepay

Hi all,

 

can I setup autopayments of my Optus account (Mobile and NBN) via Centrepay to be taken out of my Newstart? If so, could someone supply either Optus' ABN or CRN please?

 

Thank you.

Re: Centrepay

That is not an option.

 

Presumably your Newstart Payment gets put into a bank acount or paid in cash? 

 

You can pay after that.

Thanks, Peter, for explaining how money works.

 

The OP is looking to set up centrepay to manage their bill easier. I'm sure they understand they can manually pay with their funds but their circumstances may be such that an automatic deduction from their pension might be the best option.

 

Why doesn't Optus support it?

@strangewhine  you are absolutely correct! I ended up setting up BPay deductions from my bank account. But as you say, "Why doesn't Optus support it? Even Telstra have.

Re: Centrepay

Hi @jpeck,

Thanks for raising this with us.

We've recently added an option to pay bills with Centrepay.

You can apply for this service with Centrelink directly in person (Centrelink office) or online.
