It’s simple – curl your fingers as if you were going to knock on a door, then hold your hand over the payment terminal.
If you’re buying something over $100, you’ll need to enter your card PIN.
Effective 28 September 2021 the Bankwest Halo payment device is withdrawn from sale. Customers who already hold a Bankwest Halo payment device can continue using it until the expiry of the device, however, from 1 December 2021 the Bank will no longer reissue or replace any existing Bankwest Halo payment device.
If you’ve already got an eligible account and know what size ring you’ll need, head to the Bankwest App or online banking.
Each ring is $15 – you’ll pay this whenever you order a Bankwest Halo.
The same way you’d activate a new card. Head to online banking, then choose ‘manage my cards’ from the ‘self service’ menu, and follow the prompts.

There are a few golden rules:
Yes, it’s waterproof up to 50m. That means you can wear it swimming, in the shower or in the rain. Make sure to rinse the ring with tap water if you swim in sea water.
You can use it wherever contactless payments are accepted - including overseas.
No, you can only use your payment ring at contactless terminals.
If it's linked to a bank account, it’ll expire in 3 years. If it's linked to a credit card, it’ll expire when the card expires.
You need to be 16 or over to order and use a Bankwest Halo.
Not at all – it has no battery.
