Depositing cash or cheques

To deposit cash or cheques straight into your account, you can use a Smart ATM or visit us in a branch.


If there’s no Bankwest branch or Smart ATM near you, it might be more convenient to use your local Australia Post office to deposit money using your debit card. Bank@Post allows you to deposit cash and cheques to your Bankwest account. Remember, there’s a $6,000 limit on Bank@Post deposits and cheques may take up to 5 business days to clear. Fees may apply.

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

If you’re still using a passbook, you might be wondering how you’ll be affected by the current Coronavirus situation. See our passbook FAQs.
