It’s as safe as using a personal computer, but always remember to keep your device software up to date and follow basic security measures, like installing security software for mobile phones to protect your phone and Internet Banking credentials.
We only support mobile phones that use SSL encryption to keep your information secure.
We recommended the following browsers, which should be updated to the latest versions: Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari.

A ‘balance alert’ notifies you via email when your balance goes over, or falls below, a certain amount. To set up a balance alert, simply log in to Internet Banking, and click the icon next to the account you wish to set up an alert on.
You can switch from paper statements to eStatements in Internet Banking or on the Suncorp Bank App. Simply select ‘eStatements’ from the menu, and then switch the ‘online’ button for each account you’d like to receive electronically.
You can access any statements issued since 1 July 2013 in Internet Banking via the eStatements option on the left-hand menu.
You’ll still be able to view your eStatements for closed accounts in your Internet Banking, if you chose to receive eStatements when the account was open.
Depending on which account type you have, you can choose to have your paper statement mailed monthly, quarterly, every six months or annually to your home address.
eStatements are available two days after the last day of the month and are sent to your primary email address.
eStatements are available for:
- Personal transaction and savings accounts
- Term deposit accounts
- Personal loans
- Home loans
Statements for Everyday Options sub-accounts’ appear within the statements of the main account to which they are linked.
There are two reasons why your accounts may not be listed on the account balances page:
- The account isn’t linked to Internet Banking. To add another account in the app, click on ‘Add Account’ at the top of the balances screen, and add any accounts that are missing.
- The account is not included in your default profile. The Mobile Banking Apps don’t support different profiles. To add another account, simply choose the ‘Add Account’ option at the bottom of the Balances screen.
If your linked account is not showing, please contact us and we’ll resolve the issue.
A designated name in Internet Banking is a nickname that you can give your account to easily recognise it – for example, you might call your account “Holiday” or “Bills”. All you need to do is go to ‘Manage My Accounts’ and click on the ‘change’ link next to the account name.
A regular payment is a recurring transfer from your credit card, debit card or bank account for an ongoing service provided. A regular payment could be a Direct Debit from your account, or a recurring payment from your credit or debit card.
When a transaction is pending on a Visa Card, we’re unable to prevent that transaction from being deducted from your account. However, if a transaction is finalized through your account, you can dispute it by completing a Visa dispute form.
To set up a regular payment (direct debit or recurring payment), you must give authority to your service provider (not Suncorp Bank) to regularly debit your account as agreed with you.
You can set up recurring transfers by:
- Logging on to Internet Banking and visiting the ‘Transfer Money’ area, then
- Setting up a transfer in the ‘Timing’ section and choosing the ‘Recurring payment’ option
Future-dated or recurring transfers are ‘initiated’ on the day you selected, but the funds may not be available until the following day. The funds may take up to 48 hours to reach another financial institution.
If the transfer is unsuccessful, you will receive an email notification. You can log on to Internet Banking and read your secure message to determine which transaction was unsuccessful.
We’ll try, but it depends on your circumstances. If your transaction or money transfer date was set to ‘immediate’, please contact us right away and we’ll attempt to reverse the payment for you.
Unfortunately, we’re unable to reverse a BPAY® transaction in Internet or Mobile banking. Please don’t try and repeat the same process with a new transaction, this will register as two separate transactions. You may have to contact the Biller to notify them.
Recurring Payment instructions using a Suncorp Bank Visa debit card or Suncorp Clear Options Credit Card is processed through the Visa card payment system, whereas a Direct Debit is set up on your Suncorp Bank account, and authorised by Suncorp.
Contact your service provider if your card number changes or contact Suncorp if you wish to change the account your regular payment is paid out of.
It’s important to keep enough funds in your account to cover automated instructions so your account maintains a positive balance.
To cancel a direct debit linked to your transaction or savings account you can contact us. To cancel a recurring payment linked to your Suncorp Clear Options Credit Card or Suncorp Bank Visa Debit card you must contact the service provider the recurring payment was established with.
You can change the frequency of your recurring payments at any time. Simply log in to Internet Banking and select ‘Transfer Money’, and then click the ‘Edit’ button next to the relevant transfer.
To change the frequency of your home loan repayments from funds stored in a Suncorp Bank account, log in to Internet Banking and select ‘Edit’ in the ‘Transfers’ tab.

To request an ETP, go to the Settings and Security menu on the left-hand toolbar within Internet Banking (not via the App).
