Direct Debit has entered the fast lane.
PayTo is the latest innovation from Australia’s New Payments Platform (NPP) and financial services industry.
Faster, smarter and more secure, PayTo lets customers link their bank accounts to apps, subscriptions, membership fees, energy bills, loan repayments or buy now, pay later services. 24 hours a day. Every day of the year.
These “payment agreements” instantly authorise your business to initiate payments from their bank account. Approval is only required once, making it seamless for both one-off and recurring payments.
With 75 million accounts already linked via the NPP, PayTo is set to reshape the Australian payments space.

PayTo is ideal for:
Instant first + subscription payments
PayTo is transforming subscription payments with instant payment notifications and single setup requirements. Not only can you collect initial setup fees or hardware costs up front, initial and recurring payments are now approved in one go.
With PayTo, your customer’s bank account is instantly verified, drastically reducing your exposure to fraud. You’ll also be able to see when a payment agreement is paused, changed or cancelled, allowing you to take action and improve customer experience with data-driven conversations.
Need to verify your customers instantly? PayTo’s real-time account validation and notifications remove the uncertainty of traditional direct debit. So you can offer a secure, low-fee alternative to credit cards for your digital streaming platform.
Card-on-file payments, but better
PayTo can be set up to work just like card-on-file. Direct debit offers a more secure option to credit cards, which can expire, get lost or be stolen at any time. PayTo pulls payments from your customer's bank account so you can stop paying hefty credit card fees and stamp out failed payments.
