ABA Files

NOTE: This Bulk Payment File help note supports Australian Banks only

Saasu supports Direct Entry (DE) or Bulk EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) ABA files. They are a convenient way to make bulk payments by uploading these to your online banking application.

  1. Speak to your bank institution and get the required authorities to process DE ABA files through online banking.
  2. You should receive a Bank Code (3 letters) and Client User ID (Direct Entry APAC ID) for processing DE ABA files from your bank institution.
  3. Go to the View > Bank Account add/edit screen for the bank account you will use to make payments from with the DE ABA files.
  4. Ensure the details are filled in correctly.
  5. Ensure you have entered EFT banking details against each contact you will be paying via this method. The DE ABA file won't validate unless every payment has correct bank details against its contact.
  6. From a list of unpaid purchases, tick the boxes against the ones you wish to pay.
  7. Choose pay selected and enter the details including the reference (as DE ABA or similar).
  8. Save the payment - a DE ABA will become available. You can save this to your desktop by clicking its link.
  9. Sign in to your online banking account and upload the file to the appropriate area for processing by your bank. Because each bank is different, you will need to follow instructions in your bank website or contact them for detailed direction on uploading the file. Note that Saasu does not, at any stage, have the authority to send out payments through your Bank Account on your behalf.
