These Heritage Bank Samsung Pay Terms and Conditions together with the product terms of your accounts, govern the use of your eligible Heritage Bank card with Samsung Pay. Where inconsistent with the relevant product terms, these terms apply.
You agree to these Terms and Conditions by:
(i) adding an eligible Heritage Bank card to Samsung Pay on your supported device; or
(ii) allowing an additional cardholder to add their eligible Heritage Bank card to Samsung Pay on their supported device.
For information on eligible Heritage Bank card and supported devices please visit www.heritage.com.au.
For information supported devices please visit https://www.samsung.com/au/apps/samsungpay/.
You can add an eligible Heritage Bank card to Samsung Pay on supported devices. An additional cardholder may also add their eligible Heritage Bank card to Samsung Pay on their supported device provided that:
(i) you or the additional cardholder are verified when adding a card;
(ii) if the person adding the card is not the sole account holder, each account holder of that account has agreed to the eligible Heritage Bank card being added to Samsung Pay on the supported device; and
(iii) the account is in good standing.
An eligible Heritage Bank card can be unlinked from Samsung Pay by following the instructions on the Heritage Bank website and/or the Samsung Pay app. You can also ask us to suspend or close your cards from Samsung Pay by calling us on 13 14 22 or visiting any of our branches.
As part of the process we will either send you a text message (to the mobile phone number you have registered with us) with a verification code or have you verify your identity via our Contact Centre. You should ensure that Heritage Bank has your correct mobile number in order to receive the verification code via text message.
Once you have added your card to Samsung Pay and been verified, you may authorise and process transactions by using the relevant supported device in place of an eligible Heritage Bank card at a contactless payment terminal. Each transaction is not to exceed the daily limits of the card as set out in the Fees and Limits guide. In some cases, you may temporarily exceed this limit, for example where systems are unavailable. You may be required to enter your card PIN into the merchant's terminal or enter your security credentials on supported devices to complete a transaction.
Samsung Pay allows you to select how your transactions are processed. Your options are:
(i) By Visa, which will pledge the amount as an authorisation on your account until the transaction is processed.
(ii) By EFTPOS, which will debit your account immediately.
Fees and charges may apply – see the Fees and Limits guide.
For complaint resolution refer to the Complaints section the appropriate Product Guide.

Based on your report, we will suspend use of your eligible Heritage Bank card with Samsung Pay. This helps protect you as much as possible from additional loss or liability.
We warrant that we will comply with the ePayments Code. Your liability for unauthorised transactions will be determined in accordance to the ePayments Code. More terms which affect your liability in relation to transactions are set out in the relevant product terms.
You must take steps to secure your supported device on which your eligible Heritage Bank card has been registered.
You are responsible for ensuring that:

WARNING: this could result in significant loss or liability in relation to such transactions.
You should check your transaction history regularly to make sure there are no errors or unauthorised transactions.
You and any additional cardholder must tell us promptly if:
