Open Banking

Everything you need to know about sharing your Bankwest data with accredited organisations.

What’s Open Banking?

Open Banking gives you greater control of your Bankwest data. It was introduced after the Australian Government passed legislation, called the Consumer Data Right. It means you can now share some of your Bankwest data with accredited organisations so they can provide you with a product or service (like a budgeting tool).​

Benefits of Open Banking​

Open Banking could change the way you compare products and services between organisations and make it easier for you to find better deals. It could also mean access to new features and services to help you manage your finances.

Who can share data and what accounts are available?​

To be eligible for data sharing, you:​

  • Have to be at least 18 years old ​
  • Need to have access to the Bankwest App or online banking​
  • Must have an eligible account​
