What is the widget and how does it work?

A widget is a shortcut button designed to let you see certain app information on your home screen. For the new Pay feature, this information is a tile from the card carousel showing your most recently used card. If you tap the widget, it will take you straight into the app. To set up the widget:

  1. From your phone's home screen, tap 'Apps' 
  2. Select the 'Widgets' tab at the top of the screen
  3. Scroll through the widgets available until you find 'Payment Widget' with the Westpac Pay logo
  4. Tap and hold the widget to place it on your home screen
  5. The Pay widget should now show your most recently used card.
