Take the mystery out of your purchases

You might not always recognise a transaction on your statement as businesses sometimes trade under a different name to the one they registered. By using the Look Who’s Charging feature, you’ll see more details like: 

  • The trading name and logo
  • A map of the transaction location
  • An address, phone number, and website if available



Recognise the merchant but not the transaction?

Sometimes a transaction results from a misunderstanding and is easily resolved with a call to the merchant. If you can’t resolve the issue with the merchant, dispute it in Online Banking or the Westpac App.
