Can I change my PIN?

No. However, if you forget your PIN you do have the ability to retrieve it.

I’ve forgotten my PIN. How can I retrieve it?

The cardholder must have their personal details registered in their AccessPay account. Minimum requirements for applying for a Salary Packaging and Employee Benefits card include name, date of birth, and an email address. If the details are not registered or are not correctly updated, the cardholder will not be able to verify their identity and/or receive the security code required for the process.

If you have not registered an email address to your AccessPay account, you will not be able to retrieve your PIN. You can update your email address via logging into your AccessPay account online, via the app or by emailing customerservice@accesspay.com.au

PIN reveal procedure

Cardholders can retrieve their PIN by visiting https://pin.emerchants.com.au.

You will be prompted to enter your 16 digit Personal Account Number (PAN) along with personal details to verify your identity.

Following verification of your identity, a security number will be sent to your email address as registered with the card. The security number will be required to allow the cardholder to access their PIN.

Can I choose which account a transaction payment comes from?

Which account a transaction will draw from will be dependent on the merchant code applied to the eftpos machine the transaction is processed through. Please see page 7 for information on the Funding Hierarchy in the User Guide here.

How does the Card know which account to draw funds from?

The funding hierarchy is the sequence in which purchases using your card will be processed to your funding sources (i.e. General Living Expenses and Entertainment Benefits accounts).

Funding Hierarchy

The transaction will confirm whether funds can be taken from your Entertainment Benefits account based on the type of merchant that you are transacting at. If the merchant type is not suitable to be charged to or zero/insufficient funds are available in your Entertainment Benefits account, your General Living Expenses account will be used. In the event that neither accounts have sufficient funds available to complete the transaction, the transaction will be declined.

Please see page 7 of the User Guide here for examples.

What happens if I enter my PIN incorrectly 3 or more times?
