Anything else I need to do?
Set or change your PIN
You can set a PIN when you activate your card online. To find out how, check out our guide to setting or changing your PIN.
Enhance your card security
Your card is already protected by a range of security measures including 24/7 Fraud Protection. All you need to worry about is signing the back of it.
Consider setting up recurring payments
Recurring payments are a handy way to pay your regular bills such as power, gas and phone automatically from your credit card. They can take the hassle out of remembering when your regular expenses are due, and some companies even offer discounts if you pay by automatic payment.
To set up automatic payments, you’ll need to contact each service provider and supply them with:
- Your Bank of Melbourne credit card number
- Credit card expiry date
- Card verification number - this is the last 3 digits on the back of your Mastercard or Visa.
Some companies offer the facility to provide card details on their websites. However, with others you’ll need to provide them over the phone or in writing.
Manage any previous recurring payments
If you have companies automatically debiting your previous credit card for services such as phone, electricity or rent, you’ll need to let them know your new credit card details. You can do this by giving them a call or checking their websites to see if you can update online.
