What is Westpac PayWear?
Westpac PayWear is a chip (PayWear Card) linked to your chosen Westpac everyday bank account which can be inserted into a PayWear Accessory such as a silicone Keeper. It uses the same contactless technology as your Westpac Debit Mastercard® but gives you the convenience of tapping with your wrist instead of using your debit card or phone to make contactless purchases. Once you have received your PayWear Card, simply activate it and set a PIN online then remove the chip from the cardholder and insert it into your PayWear Accessory. Please keep the cardholder secure so you have the card number and expiry date available in case your Westpac PayWear is lost or stolen.
PayWear is not for sale and we are no longer issuing replacements.
From August 2022, you will no longer be able to use your PayWear Card for transactions.
You can still use your PayWear Card as required until August, however, replacements will no longer be issued from May 2022 lost or stolen Cards.
There are alternative digital card options which can be added to your mobile device and are available 24/7 in the Westpac App. Alternatively, you can order a new debit card to allow you to access your account.
