Any pending transactions will need to be fully processed before we can help you raise a dispute. It usually takes 3-5 days to process a transaction however it can take 10 business days or longer in some instances.
We will do our best to help you with your enquiries but only the business or merchant can resolve the following:
For extra control and security over your account you can put a lock on your Greater Bank Visa Credit or Debit Card in Online Banking or via the App.
If at any time you suspect fraud on your account, you should contact us immediately.
Some issues can be resolved faster by contacting the business or merchant directly.
If the business or merchant can’t help, call us as soon as possible. If you don’t we may lose any chargeback rights we have under the Visa and Eftpos scheme rules. Different rules apply to unauthorised transactions which are regulated by the ePayments Code.
Check out the code in full on the ASIC website.
As part of our investigation, we may ask you for documents that support your dispute
