I was sent an email link about a payment system called B2B Pay, which you can use for earning Qantas Points, which is connected to Qantas Business Rewards. They even suggest you can even use a regular credit card through this system to earn points from ATO/Utilities payments.

I used it a few times when they offered a special bonus for new accounts in May/June. The fee structure is quite transparent - 2.64% inclusive of GST. The regular Qantas FF points of 1 point for $100 amount paid worths really little but you get 1 MR points for every dollar of the payment if paid on AMEX. I personally won't do it on other cards which may give as little as 0.4 points (equivalent) for every dollar (as in the case of Citibank Visa Signature). The catch is they really play it safe so they will check with the payee by calling them up on bank details (if not paying via BPay) on new payee set-ups, charge your credit card on the date you specified, THEN make the payment probably 5 business days later (to ensure they get the funds before paying?). I got my fingers burnt as a few payments became overdue and I received a few phone calls! Also I am yet to receive the bonus points into my account at this moment, three weeks after the campaign finished. I have just sent an online enquiry via its website and hopefully will get some timely response.

Agree you don't use this service for the Qantas points, but rather to earn points using Amex. It's a bit like Rewardpay except it takes Bpay as well.
Thanks so much for sharing your experience. It's certainly given me plenty to think about, and doubt I'll jump in to doing this anytime soon. Devil is always in the details, and a few calculations.

The main advantages of B2BPay over RewardPay would be if you're:
You'd earn the most points by using a Business Accelerator AMEX (2 FF points per $1 spent up to $50,000/year), although if you go over that, it's 1/$1. Larger businesses could instead earn more points via Business Explorer which is 1.5/$1 uncapped and a 50,000-point loyalty bonus after spending $100k/year.
(Not financial advice, of course - you need to make your own decisions - but just sharing some basic, publicly-available information.)
