A step by step guide to getting started with your Business Visa Debit Card.
1. Activate your card and choose your PIN
Once you’ve received your Business Visa Debit Card, the first thing you’ll need to do is activate your new card and choose a PIN. Activating your card is easy, and you can do it in NetBank, the CommBank app, at your nearest branch with your card or by calling 13 2221.
2. Sign the back of your card using a ballpoint pen
3. Update your direct debits
If you set up any direct debits using your old card number, they won’t work anymore. You’ll need to contact your service providers directly to update your payment details – if you use your BSB and account number instead of your card number you won’t need to update your direct debits every time you get a new card.
4. Destroy your old card, if you still have it
New card, new direct debit details
Once your new Business Visa Debit Card is activated, your old one will be cancelled immediately. This means any regular payments you have set up using your 16 digit card number will need to be updated.
You’ll need to call up your power company, phone provider or whoever you have a direct debit with and advise them of your new card number and expiry date. Make sure you consider monthly, quarterly and annual direct debits.
And remember, if you set up your direct debits using your BSB and Account Number instead of your card number, you won’t need to update them every time you get a new card.
If you’re not sure who you have direct debits with, simply check your old statements. Direct debits are a personal agreement between you and your service provider so unfortunately we can’t assist you with this.
