Applying to use Basicscard payment method

To use Basicscard as a payment method for your customers, we must approve you as a Basicscard business.

On 10 May 2017, we updated the BasicsCard Application and Merchant Terms, including Special Conditions for Taxi Merchants. We will contact existing Merchants about transitioning.

To apply, follow these steps:

Step 1 - before you start

Download, print and read:

Step 2 - apply

Complete the BasicsCard Merchant Application form, making sure you:

  • complete all relevant questions
  • complete the terminal details section, and
  • read the agreement to participate and sign the application

Step 3 - submit

Fax your completed BasicsCard Merchant Application form to 1300 727 760.

Application outcome

We will let you know the outcome of your application.

Once approved, we’ll use the information from your application to activate your EFTPOS terminals. You can then accept the BasicsCard as a form of payment.

We’re testing a new website design. Try it out and tell us what you think. Read more about changes to this site.
