How does Netcode work?

Last Updated: 30 Mar 2016

If you are making a payment online through FastNet Classic or FastNet Classic Mobile, to someone else not previously 'authenticated' (a trusted payee) and your payment takes you over your Netcode limit, we’ll immediately send a TXT message to the mobile number you have registered for Netcode, or ask you to enter the code on your Netcode token.  This TXT carries an eight digit Netcode.  You’ll need to enter this code in the Netcode field on the payment to authorise it.

You’ll also need Netcode to register for TXT banking, and if you make International Money Transfers. 

Netcode SMS is available on New Zealand and international mobile phone numbers. Just call us on 0800 FASTNET (0800 327 863) or +64 9 306 3185 to register.

Please note: Netcode via SMS is free to use if you have a New Zealand mobile phone number, but please check with your provider in case there are charges to receive international text messages. Since we rely on international phone providers to send our Netcode SMS to international phone numbers, we cannot guarantee you’ll be able to receive Netcode SMS to your international phone number.
