Visa Prepaid Card

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Welcome to the BFS Visa Prepaid Card

BFS in conjunction with Indue Ltd can offer you a BFS Visa Prepaid Card.

The BFS Visa Prepaid Card could be the perfect solution for those who want greater control and flexibility over their money.

You can use the card to pay for purchases and services wherever Visa Prepaid cards are accepted electronically. Unlike a credit card you only spend what you've loaded onto your card so no chance of over spending. Plus, you can use the card as often as you like until the available balance is spent.

Use your card every day:

  • Globally, wherever Visa Prepaid cards are accepted electronically
  • For cash withdrawals at ATMs
  • To shop online
  • To purchase by mail or over the phone
  • To pay bills

And introducing…. Visa payWave

The BFS Visa Prepaid Card also provides a new, faster and more convenient way to pay for small purchases  – Visa payWave.

With the use of contactless technology, there's no need to swipe your card, or even enter your PIN for purchases under $100 at participating merchants. You can still use your card for larger purchases by entering your PIN. 

Whether it’s grabbing your morning coffee on the way to work, a quick bite to eat or some last minute groceries, Visa payWave takes the hassle out of small, everyday purchases. 

The card is reloadable

You can load funds on your card via Direct Entry from your account or have wages, pension, etc transferred to the card.   The card can then be used like a normal debit card up to the balance held on the card.   As it is reloadable you can add additional funds at any time up to a maximum of $5,000 held on the card at any one time. 

Indue Ltd is the card issuer. Indue Ltd is an Approved Deposit taking institution with over 40 years experience in the payment industry. 

It's that easy. Once you've loaded money onto the card and signed the back, you can use it for purchases anywhere throughout the world wherever Visa prepaid cards are accepted electronically.

The card can be used at over 400,000 terminals and 60,000 retailers around Australia, wherever Visa Prepaid Cards are accepted.
  • Purchasing & cash both made easy. For store purchases you simply swipe through the terminal in the usual way. It’s just as easy for cash withdrawals from an ATM.  Note that 'Cash Out' is not available with store purchases. Easy budget control by using your own money, it just makes it that much easier (unlike a credit card, a prepaid card has no credit facility). A great way to give your children access to funds as needed, pay pocket money or gifts to the account, and allow them to spend money and maintain a record of the expenditure.
