The Swag Spend Account is a feature within Swag that enables employees to manage their money at no additional cost.
The Swag Spend Account also includes a digital Mastercard debit card that is linked to your Swag Spend Account digital transaction account, and can be used with Apple Pay and Google Pay.
Get started with your Swag Spend Account.
Opening a Swag Spend Account
You are not 16 or overSwag Spend Account applicants need to be 16 years or older to be eligible for a Swag Spend Account.
Your address or passport details do not matchYou need to input your full name (including initials if displayed on your identity document), address, date of birth and passport number exactly as they appear on your documents, as this is important for the verification process. If not input exactly, then your Swag Spend Account application will be rejected.
Be mindful of abbreviations (e.g. St. instead of street, Rd instead of road) as this is a common cause of our internal verification systems being unable to match your data, which will cause your application to fail.
If your ID has a middle name, ensure you write your middle name/s exactly as it appears on your ID. This might be just the middle initial, or all of your middle names. If this does not match your ID exactly, then our verification system will not be able to identify you, and your application will fail.
This process is also case-sensitive, so be sure to match the case exactly as appears on your ID.

Additionally, sometimes other financial institutions choose to hold received Faster Payments payments due to their own internal rules related to fraud or anti-money laundering monitoring. Which means we do not have oversight of the dates or times for when the payments will arrive.

Important Product Information
There are specific circumstances and time frames where we can claim a refund for a disputed transaction. This means that our ability to investigate a disputed transaction is limited to the time frames imposed by payment service providers and card schemes (like Mastercard) that we deal with, so it is important to let us know as soon as possible after you become aware of a disputed transaction.
If you have a problem with a purchase made with your Swag Spend Account or a disputed transaction, the first step is to get in touch with the merchant you made the purchase from.
