Across Australia, the PIN limit for contactless ‘tap and go™’ payments has increased from $100 to $200. This is a temporary measure to reduce your need to make physical contact with payment terminals.
Retailers such as Woolworths and Coles started to use the temporary $200 limit from April 2020.
Your Bankwest cards automatically applied the new limit, however not all retailers have these new limits applied to their merchant facilities. Please always follow the PIN pad prompts to allow your transaction to go through smoothly.
You can also continue to purchase safely online from secure websites using your Bankwest cards. See more info on online safety.
