Protect yourself when you pay in store

With CommBank Tap & Pay, you can avoid cash and PIN pads to minimise the spread of coronavirus.

If you unlock your phone and tap in-store with CommBank Tap & Pay, on most terminals you won’t have to touch a shared PIN pad – no matter how much you spend. 

Quick. Easy. Secure.

Pay on the go in store, without cash or cards. Use your phone to tap for purchases under $100.

Over $100? Tap, you may need to enter your PIN depending on the terminal.

An embedded near-field communication (NFC) chip transmits your card's info wirelessly, so you can pay from your eligible CommBank debit or credit card1 in the CommBank app with your Android phone.
