Does ANZ Do Cardless Cash?

Yes, ANZ does offer a way to withdraw cash without a card. However, the bank does not call it Cardless Cash, but Digital Wallet. Two other big banks in Australia, Commonwealth Bank, and NAB, call their equivalent service as Cardless Cash.

Why ANZ does not call it cardless cash? That’s because they do require their customers to use a card but not in a physical form but in a digital wallet (app). That’s contrary to the rest two banks that allow their customers to use just an app without a digital card to withdraw cash.

This post will explain how to use ANZ Digital Wallet and share some tips.

Interest Fees for Cash Withdrawal at ATM

This convenient feature is not free. According to the Digital Wallet disclaimer, it will incur interest and you may have to pay a Cash Advance Fee. The ANZ Credit Card Conditions of Use document explains the definition of cash advance.

A cash advance refers to cash withdrawal from an ATM selecting “credit” as the account type. This will always charge interest even though you are in the interest free periods on your credit card account. The interest will generally be charged from the cash advance date until you pay off that amount in full. During that period, interest will keep being charged.

You may prevent from being charged interest if your credit card account is in credit (by at least the amount of the cash advance) upon the cash advance.

How to Use Digital Wallet at ATM

Using the Digital Wallet at an ANZ ATM is straightforward.

  1. Open your digital wallet app and choose your ANZ card.
  2. Tap your smart device at the contactless symbol that looks like below.
  1. Enter your PIN.

With these steps, you can withdraw cash without a physical card from your wallet. You can use your Digital Wallet at any ANZ ATM across Australia.

Once you completed withdrawal from an ATM, you may receive notifications for your transaction if you have turned on notification for your Digital Wallet.

Conclusion

Although ANZ does not have “cardless cash”, the bank provides the digital wallet feature. While cardless cash is only for cash withdrawal at ATM, ANZ’s digital wallet can be used to pay at an online or offline store. Check the requirements and note that it can incur fees. With these in mind, you are now ready to use Digital Wallet.
