Stay in the loop with Push Notifications
Get helpful reminders like deposit, withdrawal, credit card repayment and security notifications when there are changes to your accounts.
Setting up Push notifications may assist in early detection of fraudulent activity and help you manage your finances.
If you haven’t already, you will start to receive payment notifications over the coming weeks as we gradually turn on the feature for all customers.
You can control what notifications you receive in the Westpac App by searching for Notifications or by navigating to
Profile>Settings>Notification and marketing>Notification settings.
Transaction notifications by account type
- Change of personal details
- Change of personal Daily Payment Limit
- Credit card repayment reminder
You can also stop receiving Push notifications on your device by searching Notifications in the Westpac App and navigating to Notification and marketing>Manage push notification devices and tapping Remove for the appropriate device.
If you dismiss a service alert - you can check the details of these in the Message or Alerts inbox in the Westpac App.
If you accidentally dismiss a payment notification, you can sign into the Westpac App and view your transactions.
The table below shows the ways you will receive notifications for each alert type once you register for Push notifications.
NOTE: These only apply where you haven’t previously selected a notification preference for that alert.

This may occur when the date or time on your device is incorrect. Once you correct the date and time open the Westpac App and try again.
This may occur occasionally, as Push notifications are sometimes faster than the updates to your transaction account information. Please wait a few minutes, sign into your App again to view your deposited funds.
Yes, your details remain confidential and secure. By registering for Push notifications, this gives peace of mind and helps you stay informed of changes to your Contact details, Daily Payment Limits as well as account deposit and withdrawals. For more information view our Online Banking terms and conditions.
If you have started receiving transaction Push notifications through the Westpac App, and these are now duplicated with your wallet notifications when you make a payment on your device, we recommend turning off your notifications through your Android or Apple wallet settings.
To do this, open your mobile wallet settings, select your card to update and follow the prompts. By keeping your Westpac payment notifications on, you will continue to receive notifications when money goes in and out of your account'.
