The first card you add to the Apple Wallet will automatically become your default card that is used to pay. To make Greater Bank your default card for Apple Pay:

  1. Launch the settings app on your device
  2. Tap Wallet & Apple Pay
  3. Under Transactions Defaults, tap Default Card
  4. Select the card you wish to make your default card

You do not need any type of internet connection to use Apple Pay in stores.

Apple Pay in stores uses the NFC chip (Near Field Communications) to transfer the payment information to the store's terminal. There is no internet connection required.

Yes, the same transaction limits that are on your physical card also apply to Apple Pay. If a PIN is required, you will need to enter the PIN for your card at the terminal.

No. Once a card has been reported lost/stolen or is locked, the card is suspended in your digital wallet and cannot be used.

If the card is found and unset as lost/stolen or unlocked, the card will automatically resume in your digital wallet, provided there are no other restrictions on the card.

If a new card is ordered, it will update to the wallet automatically and you can recommence making payments/purchases using your digital wallet.

There can be several reasons why a transaction is declining. First, you should check for the following issues:

  • Is there a message “Complete Verification” below the card in the Apple Pay wallet? If this message is displayed, you’ll need to complete the verification process by requesting a one-time verification code. You will not be able to use Apple Pay until this is completed.
  • Make sure your card is activated, is not locked or cancelled
  • Check to see if your card has expired
  • Check to ensure you have sufficient funds

If your transaction is still declining after running through these troubleshooting steps, get in touch with us on 1300 651 400 or via Facebook Messenger for further assistance.

If the replacement card has the same card number as the original, the details will remain the same. All you need to do is activate your new card and you can start using it.

If your replacement card has a new number on it, the details will be automatically updated.

No, you don’t need to re-enrol your new card as the new expiry date is automatically updated. You do however need to activate your new card before you can start using Apple Pay again.

Generally, you will not be required to enter your PIN for purchases with Apple Pay. However, some older merchant terminals may request it.

When adding your Greater Bank Visa card to Apple Pay, your card number is not recorded - a device account number is created instead. Your account details aren’t shared with merchants as they will only receive the device account number. This is done to protect your card details so they aren’t exposed to others.

No, there are no fees to add your card to Apple Pay.
