You can use Google Pay on any compatible Android device such as smart-phone, tablet or smart watches.
With Google pay, you can:

  • Tap and pay wherever Mastercard contactless payments are accepted - even overseas
  • Buy on apps and websites where you see the Google pay logo - including Google products such as YouTube, the Play Store, Google Store, Google Photos and more.

Plus, all personal and business Bankwest Mastercard® debit and credit cards are eligible, so you're covered for work and play.

How to install

Google Pay is currently supported on Android 5.0 devices (Lollipop) or higher with Near Field Communication (NFC) and Host Card Emulation (HCE).
1

Install

Download Google Pay App on Google Play™ or check to see if it is already installed on your phone.
2

Add a card

Simply scan your card and follow the instructions in the app or enter your card details manually.
3

Get started

Unlock your phone and hold it near the contactless terminal to pay.

Simple. Secure. Convenient.

Once you've set up you're ready to pay wherever you see the contactless or Google Pay logo.

Pay in-store

Wake your phone and place it near the contactless terminal like you would normally do with your card. If your transaction is more than $100 you will need to enter your PIN.

Pay online

For in-app or online purchases, look for the Buy with Google Pay button.

Returning a purchase

It’s as simple as presenting your receipt - just like any other purchase. When the merchant asks you to swipe your card simply wake your phone and place it near the contactless terminal.

Keeping you secure

It’s our priority.

Protect your details

You’ll need to set a screen lock on your phone to use Google Pay.

Your details are never stored on your phone or shared with merchants when you make a purchase.

Track your payments

You’ll see a list of recent purchases in your card details screen.

You can also see the Google Pay transactions in online banking under the merchant’s name.

Payment alerts

For extra piece of mind you can enable Bankwest Easy Alerts on the Bankwest App to receive notifications of contactless payments.

Adding your card to Google Pay takes just a few minutes.

Frequently asked questions

Info at your fingertips

1

Which devices are eligible for Google Pay?

You can use Google Pay on any compatible Android device such as smartphone, tablet or smart watches.

2

Can I use Google Pay overseas?

Yes, Google Pay will work in all countries wherever Mastercard contactless payments are accepted, but you need to add your card to the app while in Australia (it’s a security thing). We recommend you take your plastic card as backup when travelling overseas, just in case you can’t find a contactless terminal.

3

How much can I spend using Google Pay?

You can spend up to your available balance when using your Bankwest Debit Mastercard® and up to your available limit when using your Bankwest Mastercard credit card.

4

What do I do if my device is lost or stolen?

Make sure you get in touch with us. We can suspend or remove your Bankwest cards from Google Pay and order you a new card if needed. You can also manage your cards in Google Pay.

5

What do I do if my physical card is lost or stolen?

If your card was added to Google Pay, we’ll update this with your new card details as soon as we issue it.

This means you can start using your new card straight away in cases where a physical card isn’t needed (like online shopping or where Google Pay is accepted).

Before your physical card arrives in the mail, you can log into the Bankwest App to access your digital card.
