Smart ATMs

A Smart ATM will let you deposit cash (up to $10,000) and cheques into your eligible account. Keep in mind – cheques may take up to 3 business days to clear. See how to deposit with a Smart ATM.

Bankwest branch

You can visit any of our branches to make deposits. Cheques deposited at a branch may take up to three business days to clear. Fees may apply.

As part of our commitment to our customers and community, we are actively taking steps to improve our vigilance around how we accept cash deposits and transactions at our Bankwest branches.

Australia Post

Visit a participating Australia Post store and deposit cash and cheques using the Bank@Post service using your debit card.

To make a deposit, all you need is your card and PIN. Keep in mind that Bank@Post deposits have a $6,000 daily limit, and cheques may take up to 7 business days to clear.

You can find a participating Australia Post store on the Australia Post website.
