Cannot setup direct debit

Answered

Hello, I cannot setup direct debit. I log in to https://www.my.telstra.com.au and click set up a direct debit. I click new bank account, and enter my account name, BSB, and account number. When I click submit I get an error: 'Sorry, an unexpected error has occurred and we're not able to process your request at this time. Please try again later.' Can you please help

Re: Cannot setup direct debit

Hi @Nurserobbo 

 

Any chance that you could try to set it up via the My Telstra app?

 

https://www.telstra.com.au/mytelstra 

 

Sometimes browsers and a couple of other things can cause issues so it would be interesting to see how you go with the app?

Someone keeps putting vegetables in my beer crisper :-(

Footnote: I don't work for Telstra, I just try to help out fellow Telstra customers.

At first I got the same error message, but I noticed that my bank account was added. I then clicked submit on that and got a confirmation message that direct debit was setup.

Hi @Nurserobbo 

 

They have probably been doing some tweaking and you got caught in the middle of it?

 

I've noticed Telstra is rather slow in fixing website/account issues. Let's hope your next Direct Debit goes through ok :-)

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
