Helping you stay on track with your money

It’s easy to spend money without thinking – in person, online or by direct debit – like that monthly gym membership you’ve forgotten about. Here's how Transaction Notifications work:

  • You'll receive an alert on your phone instantly when you pay or are charged for something on your CommBank debit or credit card, or when a payment goes into your debit account. 
  • We also categorise your debit and credit card spend with Spend Tracker & Insights, to give you a better idea what you’re spending your money on and where you can cut back. 

Start using Transaction Notifications

What you'll need:

  1. A CommBank debit or credit card, with no additional cardholders
  2. The latest version of the CommBank app

New to CommBank? Open an everyday bank account and/or apply for a credit card to start using Transaction Notifications. 

How to turn Transaction Notifications on:

  1. Log on to the CommBank app
  2. Go to View accounts
  3. Tap your debit or credit card account
  4. Tap the settings cog in the top right-hand corner
  5. Switch Transaction Notifications on

You'll then receive an alert on your phone everytime you use your card.
