Bankwest Halo

Leave your cards at home when you pair a payment ring with an eligible Bankwest account or credit card.

Why choose a Bankwest Halo?

It’s secure

It's just as secure as your card - and backed by Mastercard® 24/7 fraud protection.

Less to carry

You can leave your cards at home.

No charging

There's no need to charge it or link it to an app.

Each ring is $15

You'll pay this whenever you order a Bankwest Halo.

They’re made from lightweight Hardened Advanced Ceramic and come in black or white.

It works just like your cards

  • The ring uses contactless technology - instead of tapping your card, you make a fist and hold it on the terminal to pay
  • It's linked to one account and can't be transferred to another
  • When it arrives, you'll need to activate it and set your PIN (if it’s linked to a bank account)
  • You can lock it or unlock it in the Bankwest App, so you're covered if you ever lose it.

Does it expire?

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.

Make it work for you

Frequently Asked Questions

Info at your fingertips


What if it falls off my finger?

If you misplace your ring, you can put a temporary lock on it in the Bankwest App or online banking. If you're sure it's lost, call us on 13 17 19.

Make sure you use the sizing kit before you order so your ring fits snugly.


How much does it cost?

A fee of $15 will be charged for each ring you request us to issue to you. There are no ongoing fees for using your ring, but fees may apply to your linked account.


Can I change the linked account?

Your ring will be made specifically for the account you choose. If you want to link a ring to another account, you'll need to order a separate ring.


Where can I use the ring?

You can use it wherever contactless payments are accepted - including overseas.


What if I need to refund a purchase made with the ring?

Refunds work the same way as usual - you'll just hold your fist over the terminal, rather than your card.
