FAQs

Like an EFTPOS card, a debit card links to one of your transaction accounts – so when you use it, you’re spending money that’s in your account.
And a debit card has some other added benefits: you can use it online, over the phone and overseas – anywhere you can use a credit card. All of our debit cards also come with the added protection of CardGuard™.

You can withdraw up to $800 at a time from an ATM. To get more cash, make two or more withdrawals. (This limit is in place because the machines can't actually dispense more than 40 notes at once).

  • For domestic ATM cash withdrawals there is a $3,000 limit per day
  • For international ATM cash withdrawals there is a $2,000 limit per day

This is to ensure no one can fraudulently empty your account if they discover your PIN number. This includes weekends and holidays.

We also limit your total EFTPOS spending and ATM withdrawals in one day to $10,000. If you've used a Gold, Business or Premium credit card for your EFTPOS purchase your daily limit may be higher. The limit will be dropped a few minutes after midnight.

  • For example: If you buy $9,500 worth of jewellery in one day with EFTPOS (as you do), you will only be able to withdraw $500 that day from an ATM machine.

How can I get around this limit?

The daily limit is in place to protect against fraud, and we cannot switch it off for you.

However, the limit applies to your card rather than your account. So if it's a joint account and the other account holder has their own card, you could ask for their help to double your limit.

To apply for a debit card, you must be 15 years or older. For customers under 18 years old, a parent or guardian must complete a section of the application form and sign to accept the terms and conditions in person at a Westpac branch. If you're under 18, give us a call to make an appointment at your nearest branch.

You can access the money in your everyday account by using your Westpac ATM card at a large number of ATMs.
Look for ATMs that have either a Cirrus or a PLUS logo. (Mastercard uses Cirrus and Visa uses Plus)

If you’re overseas you won’t have to pay the NZ$3 international transaction fee to use ATMs belonging to a member of the Global ATM Alliance*.

 If you're travelling overseas, let us know on 0800 888 111 and we'll make sure you're all set for your trip.

*The NZ$3 international transaction fee saving applies to Westpac only, and is subject to change. Global ATM Alliance banks and their details are subject to change. All other international and standard fees apply including foreign currency conversion fees - refer to the Transaction and Service fees brochure. NOTE: whenever you use your Westpac credit or debit card to withdraw money from overseas ATMs your transactions will incur a foreign currency conversion fee. This is currently 1.4% of the New Zealand converted value of the foreign currency transaction amount. The currency conversion fee will be displayed on your statement.

You can use your debit card online, in-store, on the phone or overseas. It's just like a credit card, but you use your own money (not credit).
