The upload process
Once a "Payment Upload Batch" has been prepared you may upload the file(s).
You may navigate to the batch several ways:
1. As a following on workflow from preparing the upload batch
2. Receiving an email advising you to upload files (there is a hyperlink in the email)
3. Navigating to the batch upload register
The "EFT Direct Upload" form appears:
To upload a file:
- Click select "Upload Now".
- Confirm Action
- Enter you Windows password
This ensures you have not stepped away from your workstation.
The file upload process commences.
You have now successfully uploaded the file to online banking.
Avoid cancelling an upload if it takes more than 30 seconds. Allow at least 90 seconds for batches of 100 entries and up to 10 minutes for batches over 1000 payments.
Once the file is successfully uploaded the transaction will appear in online banking to be authorised and a green tick will appear in the "Uploaded" column.
An email form appears.
Select the authorised signatory or signatories and click "Send and Continue". This will send an email alerting the signatory to logon to internet banking.

If an error or warning occurs an alert will appear in next to the "Status" column. This message is returned by the bank and explains why the file cannot be uploaded.
When this error occurs the Processing Date will become editable and you may enter tomorrow's date.
