To use a Mobile Wallet, you must:
- Have a compatible device with a native Mobile Wallet app from an Approved Mobile Wallet Provider; or
- Have a compatible device and download the relevant app from an Approved Mobile Wallet Provider; and
- In either case, register Your Bank Issued Visa Debit card or Visa Credit card with the Approved Mobile Wallet Provider.
For Approved Mobile Wallet Providers and compatible devices go to:
1. Account or Cardholder Terms and Conditions
- The Conditions of use—Accounts and access (PDF, 351kb), and the fees and charges set out in the Fees and charges brochure (PDF, 98kb) ("Conditions of Use") also apply to any use by you of your card in any Mobile Wallet.
- To the extent of any discrepancy, the Conditions of Use take precedence over these Terms.
- You may also have additional terms issued by your Mobile Wallet provider or your telecommunications service provider which you are required to comply with.
2. Your responsibilities to keep your card secure and notify us of errors or fraud
- You agree to protect and keep confidential your User ID, phone lock passcode, passwords, and all other information required for you to make purchases with your card using a Mobile Wallet.
- Always protect your passcode by using a unique number or pattern that is not obvious or can be easily guessed. Take precautions when using a Mobile Wallet. Try to memorise your passcode or carefully disguise it. Never keep a record of your passcode with your device, on your device or computer, or tell anyone your passcode.
- If your device has been lost or stolen, or you believe your security credentials have been compromised, you must report this to us immediately. Your Conditions of Use require you to contact us if you believe there are errors or if you suspect fraud with your card. This includes any fraud associated with use of a Mobile Wallet. We will not be liable for any losses you incur except as specifically described in the Conditions of Use, the ePayments Code or as otherwise provided by law.
- If we allow you to register a card in the Mobile Wallet app, depending on the Mobile Wallet app you are using, you may be able to use Mobile Wallet app to conduct transactions even if you have not yet received the card or the PIN or activated the card. This includes where we issue a replacement card to replace a card which has been damaged, lost or stolen or which has expired.
- Where your device allows you to unlock the device or authenticate a payment through a Mobile Wallet by using biometric information (for example, using a fingerprint or facial recognition), you agree to ensure that no other person registers or has registered their biometric information in your device.
