Your Hume Bank Card can be registered with Google Pay to make contactless payments to retailers. It may be used within Google Pay to pay for in-app purchases.
To add your Hume Bank Card, you must follow the procedures provided by Hume Bank. In doing so, we may require you to adequately identify yourself via a variety of mechanisms to authenticate your request to register your Hume Bank Card with Google Pay. If we cannot authenticate your request to our satisfaction or if we suspect that there may be attempted fraud, we may decline the request to add your Hume Bank Card to Google Pay.
Once your Hume Bank Card is registered with Google Pay, you can use your Android Device to authorise transactions on your account.
You need to select Google Pay as the default 'tap & pay' application on your Android Device's settings to transact using Google Pay. In addition, you must have your Hume Bank Card selected as your default card within Google Pay for Google Pay to use your Hume Bank Card when completing a transaction. If Google Pay is the default 'tap & pay' application on your Android Device's settings, you may only be able to pay using Google Pay despite another 'tap & pay' application being open at the time you tap your Android Device at the contactless terminal.
Depending on the dollar value of the transaction, you may be required to undertake the following actions in order to initiate a transaction at a contactless payment terminal:
- enter your Hume Bank PIN;
- to have unlocked or awaken the Android Device (please note that for some Android Devices, carrier specific software settings may override Google Pay setting, requiring you to unlock your phone in order to initiate a transaction.
The transaction limits that apply to your Card do not change as a result of your adding your Card to Google Pay.
Google Pay may not work when the Android Device is not within range of a cellular or wireless internet connection. If the Android Device has not had a cellular or wireless internet connection for an extended time there may be a delay before Google Pay works once reconnected.
Google Pay may not be accepted outside of Australia, or at all places where your Hume Bank Card is accepted.
