Contactless Payments - Tap 'n' Go
To reduce the risk of spreading or contracting COVID-19, we encourage customers to use Tap 'n' Go (also known as payWave) card payments.
You can use contactless payments at participating merchants where you can see this logo
To use contactless payments, simply hold your Qudos Bank Credit Card or Debit Card near a payment terminal and the card will process the payment.
The Australian Payments Network has temporarily increased the contactless card payments limit from $100 to $200 with participating merchants to help reduce potential COVID-19 transmission through terminal keypads.
Please note, some point of sale devices will continue to request a PIN for transactions above $100, while we’re doing what we can to help customers pay safely, we cannot guarantee every card transaction below $200 and every payment using Apple Pay and Google Pay will be contact-free.
Cardholders will know whether they can use the new temporary limit by following the PIN pad prompt and can also ask the retailer.
Apple Pay and Google Pay
You can make contactless payments by adding your Qudos Bank Visa Debit or Credit Card to Apple Pay or Google Pay.
To use mobile payments, simply hold your device near a payment terminal and use Touch ID or Face ID to process the payments. Note: Some mobile transactions do not usually require a PIN due to the added authentication security on the device. However, some devices will continue to request a PIN for transactions above $100.
To start making payments using your Apple device, simply open the wallet app and follow the prompts to add your Qudos Bank Visa Debit or Credit Card to Apple Pay.
For an easy way to tap and pay using your Android device, simply download the Google Pay app from Google Play or the App Store and follow the instructions to add a card.
