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.
We can send you a free sizing kit or you can get one in a branch.
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.
Your ring will be made specifically for your account and can’t be reused, so it’s best to use the sizing kit before you order. If you’d like to order another size, you’ll need to buy another ring.
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.
