Uploading the EFT batch file to your bank’s website

Your EFT batch has been created as an .aba file on your computer. This file needs to be uploaded to your bank's website to process the payments you have selected.

The location of the .aba file is C:\Users\Public\Agrimaster\NetBank

As all banks and their respective websites are different, you will need to contact your bank if you do not know how to upload an EFT batch file to your bank's website.

However, in general there is an option to browse for the file and you will need to locate the ABA file via windows.
