Export a batch payment file to import into a bank account
After you've created a batch payment, export the payment file and upload it to your bank to pay the bills in the batch.
Before you start
If you want to upload the file to your bank, Xero will create an export file using a generic file format. You'll need to check your bank (and account - typically a business bank account) can make direct credit payments this way.
Export your batch file
- In the Accounts menu, select Bank Accounts.
- Click the name of the bank account you made the batch payment from.
Open the batch payment.
It's called either Payment: multiple items or Payment: Name of customer (for a single payment).
Click Export Batch File to download the file.
If you haven't uploaded files into your bank account for these types of payments before, contact your bank to find out how to do this.
