If you use online banking and are able to import an Australian Bankers Association (.ABA) file into your online banking program, you can use Electronic Payments.


You simply pay your creditors, or add a cheque via the Cheque Book, using Payment By Electronic Payments, and at the end of the day create a bank file, export the file from Jim2 to be imported and processed via your online banking program.


Please check with your bank to establish which format they require: ABA or ABA (Self Balancing).

To make use of Electronic Payments you may need to make some changes to your existing setup in Jim2. Please follow the links below for information on setting up and using Electronic Payments.



Electronic Payments also support the New Zealand bank file format. Selection of the New Zealand bank file format is bank account specific, and is set by editing the bank account from Accounts > General Ledger, selecting Bank Info, and selecting NZDirect as the bank file format.


The BSB Number is not required for the NZDirect format. Jim2 CardFiles also support the NZ bank account number format (00 0000 0000000 000, or 00-0000-0000000-000).

Most fields are self explanatory, however you will need to contact your bank to obtain the User ID/APCA Number and Bank File Format type. If your bank doesn't require you to use a specific number, please enter six zeroes, as the field is required to be filled in.
