Westpac Bank

Activating your card

Activating your card is easy. Just have your Westpac card details ready and you'll be good to go in  minutes.

Options to activate your card

  • Online Banking - if you're  already registered for Online Banking you can activate your card online
  • Phone - you can activate your card over the phone by calling us anytime on 1300 308 930
  • Telephone Banking - If you’re registered for Telephone Banking you can activate your card by calling 132 032. Follow the prompts to log in and select ‘other services’ followed by ‘card activation’.

 

What about additional cardholders?

The primary cardholder (that’s the person who opens the card account with us) must activate their card first – additional cardholders won’t be able to activate their card before the primary cardholder has activated their own.

Each cardholder will need to activate their own card before they’re able to use it.

 

What else do I need to know?

You’ll also need to:

  • Sign the back of your card
  • Update any automatic payments.
