Internet Banking is free, however if you process an international transfer, make a business payment or order a security token, you may be charged a fee.

You can set up recurring transfers in Internet Banking, via the 'Transfer Money' section. This is a simple way to make managing your money easier and might be useful for payments like rent, gym membership, home loan or if you're putting money into a savings account.

Future dated or recurring transfers are 'initiated' on the day you selected but the funds may not be available to the following day. If you have a recurring or future dated external transfer, the transfer will initiate on the day you selected but it may take 24-48 hours for the funds to reach the other bank or financial institution.
If the transfer (bill payment, funds transfer, business payment) is unsuccessful, you will receive an email notification . Log on to Internet Banking and read your secure message to determine which transaction was unsuccessful.

At Suncorp Bank we are flexible with the issue of our mailed statements and eStatements. Depending on your type of account , you can choose to have them mailed monthly, quarterly , every six months or annually. Note that for everyday banking, we are required to send you a statement at least every six months. Please visit your local branch or call us on 13 11 55 for any changes required.
For eStatements, these are available two days after the last day of the month. We will send an email to the primary email address attached to your profile when a new eStatement is ready. If you have multiple user profiles, we'll send an email to the primary email address for each profile.
If the transaction or money transfer date was set to 'immediate', please call us on 13 11 55 as soon as possible and we'll attempt to reverse the payment for you. Unfortunately, reversing a BPAY® in Internet or Mobile banking is not available. Please do not try to fix it by repeating the same process, as it will register as two separate transactions.
If the transaction was set up as a recurring or future dated transaction, you can go into the transfers or BPAY section of Internet Banking and cancel the transaction in the 'future dated' table. If we are unsuccessful in reversing a BPAY® Bill Payment, you may have to contact the Biller to notify them.
An eStatement is an electronic version of a traditional paper statement. Both are legal documents. eStatements are free of charge, and can be downloaded as a PDF, and printed, or saved.
We offer eStatements issued from 1 July 2013 onwards. If you'd like to order a statement from prior to this date, please send us a secure message in Internet Banking, call 13 11 55, or visit a Suncorp Bank branch. Fees and charges may apply.
To switch from paper statements to eStatements, you can do so in Internet Banking or 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. If at anytime you wish to switch back to paper statements, simply select the 'Paper' button on the eStatements page. You'll still be able to view any eStatements you have already received in Internet Banking.
For credit card statements, just log into Internet Banking and click 'Go to Credit Card Services', found on the eStatements page, or under your credit card number on the My Accounts page. Credit Card eStatements are available for personal credit cards only, and only in Internet Banking, not in the Suncorp Bank App.
A 'Balance' alert allows you to be emailed if your account balance goes over a set amount, falls below a set amount, or if you have a Clear Options credit card, you can be alerted if your card balance comes to within $100 of its limit.
Balance alerts are typically emailed early each morning to your nominated email addresses. A detailed secure message will also be sent to your inbox within Internet Banking. To set up a balance alert, log in to Internet Banking, and click on the icon next to the account you wish to setup an alert on. This is a free feature.
A future dated transaction is any transaction (e.g. Funds Transfer, Bill Payment, or Business Payment) that you select in Internet Banking to occur in the future, rather than immediately. The time limit on how far in advance you can setup your transaction varies with the type of transaction you are performing. Time limits are up to 60 days in advance for Funds Transfers and BPAY®, and up to 7 days in advance for Business Payments.
If a daily limit applies to your future dated transaction, this limit will be checked on the future date of your transaction.
A security token is used as another form of identification when banking online, and enables you to transfer money from Internet or Mobile banking. To order one, log in to Suncorp Internet Banking, click the Security & Settings tab on the left hand side and choose 'Order a Security Token'. New or replacement tokens cost $20, which will be taken from the account you nominate.
Once you've received your token, simply log in again, go to the Settings and Security section, and click the "order/activate" link in the extra security section. Type in the serial number (located on the back as per the photo above) and the token will then sync with your Customer ID.
Tokens expire after 5 years, and the expiry date is printed on the back of the token. We will send you an alert in Internet Banking before your token expires, so that you can order a new one. Please order and activate a new token before your old token expires, otherwise you may have difficulties logging into Internet Banking.
An External Funds Transfer Password (ETP) is a password that is needed to transfer funds to an external account with another financial institution. It is different to your Internet Banking password and provides a second level of security when performing higher risk transactions.
To apply for a ETP, log in to Internet Banking, and select 'Security' in the left hand menu, followed by 'external transfer password application'. Your ETP will be sent to you by post for security reasons. If you have lost your ETP, you can request a replacement through Internet Banking.
