Accounts and Transactions

Payments to other banks made before 7pm Monday to Friday are processed that night, otherwise the next business night.

Payments and transfers between Heartland accounts are processed immediately.

You have the option to add a reference on your transaction for your own benefit. The field is optional. For example you may wish to add a reference to identify where the payment is going or what it’s for.

Select your Savings Optimiser account from your list of accounts. You’ll then see a button at the bottom for you to Give Notice. This will send a message to our team to set your account to pay your funds out to you at the completion of the notice period.

Reinvest

You can manage your term deposits with the Reinvest function if they are maturing in the next 10 days.
You can change your term deposit maturity instructions within the 10 days up to and including its end date. You can view all information about your term deposit, including the end date, by clicking on the account in the Account page.

You can check if you are able to change your term deposit by visiting the Accounts page or through Reinvest on the toolbar. If a term deposit is maturing in the next 10 days, there will be a notice displayed on the account noting how many days until maturity. Tapping the account will then take you to your reinvestment options.

You have the ability to change what you want to do with your term deposits when they are about to end. You can change your settings as many times as you want within the 10 day period up to and including the end date.

You can change your term deposit maturity instructions within the 10 days up to and including its end date. If you would like to change it after the end date, you can send us a request over secure message in the app, and we will respond within two business days (Monday to Friday, not including public holidays). Alternatively you can call us on 0800 86 88 84 (8:00am to 5:30pm Monday to Friday).

The app allows you to choose our standard and special offer term deposit rates. If you have negotiated a different rate with us this will not appear in the app and you will need to contact us directly on 0800 86 88 84 (8:00am to 5:30pm Monday to Friday) to discuss your options.

Money Out

Money Out allows you to transfer money from a Direct Call or Business Call account to your nominated account.

A nominated account is the account that you have selected to make payments into from a call account. It can be an internal Heartland account or an external account with another bank.

To change your nominated account please send us a secure message from the app, or call us on 0800 86 88 84 (8:00am to 5:30pm Monday to Friday). We’ll need to ask you a few questions to confirm your identity before changing your nominated account, and we may ask you to verify this account.

Currently the app enables you to pay money from a call account only, into its nominated account. We are working on including transfers between internal accounts as feature in a later version.

Opening Accounts

You can open a term deposit, Direct Call, Business Call, Heartland Saver and Heartland Savings Optimiser account in the app. More information about these products is available on our Savings and Deposits page.

You can open a Direct Call, Business Call, Heartland Saver and Heartland Savings Optimiser with a $0 balance, and pay money in from another account later.

For a term deposit the minimum balance is $1,000, which will need to be available in an internal account. You can either set up another Heartland account to deposit the funds into and then open your term deposit, or call us on 0800 86 88 84 (8:00am to 5:30pm Monday to Friday) and we can arrange an external transfer for you.

At present you can only fund a new account from another Heartland account.

Please send us a secure message or call us on 0800 86 88 84 (8:00am to 5:30pm Monday to Friday).

You can access your secure message inbox by tapping the message icon at the top right corner of the app , or through menu at the top left

Our team will respond to your message with two business days (Monday to Friday, not including public holidays).

One of our team of investment experts will respond to your message.

General

Dual authorisation means your accounts are set up to have another person(s) approve a money out request. This applies when you request a payment to your nominated account from your call account. These requests will need to be authorised by the other required signatories through internet banking before a money out request can be processed. See our Internet Banking - Authorising Payments for more information.

If you have more than one minimum signatory on a term deposit account, you will not be able to change the reinvestment details in the app. Instead, send us a request via secure messaging, and we will confirm with the other signatories that they approve your request before processing it.

At present you are unable to change your personal details via the app. However, you can send us a secure message and we will do this for you.

You cannot view or set account nicknames in the current version of the app. This may change in a future version.
