We’re happy to help you locate and dispute transactions relating to Visa Debit, EFTPOS and ATM transactions. However, there are a few quick checks you can also do yourself that may assist in resolving the dispute.

Before you dispute a transaction.

Here are a few things you can do before you contact us to dispute a transaction:

  • Check the transaction with any additional cardholders.
  • Contact the merchant directly, this is usually the fastest way to resolve a transaction dispute. Some organisations such as Apple, Google, PayPal and many others have their own payment dispute processes. 
  • If you don’t recognise the merchant name appearing on your statement, checking on google.com.au can sometimes help to determine the business trading name or business type.
  • Verify if the merchant is located overseas or the transaction occurred overseas, this can alter the amount based on the exchange rate at the time.

If you still wish to dispute the transaction.

If you’ve tried to resolve your dispute using these suggestions and had no success, you can ask us to dispute the transaction on your behalf. 

You'll need to have these details ready to raise the dispute:

  • Your card and account details where the transaction occurred.
  • Date, amount & description details of the transaction from your statement or transaction history.
  • Any details of attempts to resolve with the merchant directly (e.g., emails, letters, or records of phone calls).
  • Police Report details in the case of fraudulent transactions or stolen cards.
  • Provide any receipts and/or documentation relating to the transaction/dispute.

It is best to contact us as soon as possible to assist you with:

  • Identifying transactions you don’t recognise.
