How Volt payments work in Australia
  1. The shopper chooses PayTo via Volt at checkout.
  2. The shopper enters their PayID or BSB and an account number.
  3. A one-off payment agreement is automatically generated based on the transaction amount.
  4. The payer then simply approves the agreement using their mobile or online banking.

Once approved, the funds are instantly transferred to Volt’s account. Each transaction is assigned a unique ID for easy reconciliation.
