Australia still accepts cash payments, but many places prefer electronic payments.
International credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Australian local debit and credit cards are all available for making payment. Most merchants and service providers accept these cards.
Australia widely uses electronic payment methods, including mobile payments, Alipay, WeChat Pay, and other digital wallets. You can link your bank card to these services and then use your mobile phone or other devices for payments.
You can also make payments to others through bank transfers. Typically, you need to know the recipient’s bank account information to initiate the transfer.
