How do I open an account using Westpac EasyID?
If you’re eligible and want to open an account online, you can open either a Westpac Everyday account with a debit card or a Simple Saver account online in minutes.
It's easy to apply, you'll be prompted to take these 3 easy steps:
- Take a photo of the identification page of your NZ passport or your NZ driver licence.
- You’ll then be asked to take a short video selfie of yourself so we can authenticate it against your ID.
- Once we've approved your account, we'll send you an email with your Customer ID and a text with your temporary password (valid for seven days) so you can log into Westpac One online banking. Once you're logged in you can start transacting immediately and PIN your card online so it's all ready to use when it arrives in the mail. Too easy!
Note: If you don't receive this password or don't remember to use it within the seven days, you'll need to visit a branch so they can reset your password. Read our FAQs below for more details.
