New Payments Platform (NPP)
If someone knows my PayID, can they use it to commit fraud?
No, as a PayID is only used to receive funds, not send them.
Can someone else register my details (mobile, email) as their PayID?
Only the owner of the device can register it as a PayID, as it requires Two-factor Authentication (2FA) in the form of a code sent to the phone number or email address provided to complete the registration. Read more about Two-factor Authentication on the Stay Smart Online website.
What if I send the money to the wrong person?
There are processes/procedures in place to deal with “Mistaken Payments”, if you have made a mistaken payment you need to call Credit Union SA immediately so we can attempt to recover the funds for you.
