Contactless card payment limits have been increased
Keeping safe during COVID-19
To help minimise contact with terminal devices and reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are increasing the contactless payment limit on our customer cards from $100 to $200. This means any transaction $200 or less will no longer require a PIN to be entered.
Whilst this feature is initially in place for the next 3 months, we’ll continue to monitor the situation and provide any updates if things should change.

Does this apply to mobile payments and other wearables?
You can continue to use mobile payments and other smart devices when purchasing essential goods.
