What's Quick Balance?

View the balances of your most used accounts without signing in and transfer funds between eligible accounts in just a few moves.

How Quick Balance works in the Westpac App:
  • Quick Balance - tap Quick Balance to see the available balance of up to 3 accounts
  • Quick Transfer - tap and hold to transfer between accounts
  • All Transactions - tap the balance and sign in to see transactions 


Tip: You can view up to 3 eligible accounts in Quick Balance, plus your Altitude Rewards points.

However, some account types can’t be viewed, including Variable investment loans, Fixed rate personal loans, Investment property loans, Term Deposits, Foreign currency accounts and Superannuation and online investing accounts.
