Peony UnionPay Cards Services in Australia
All Peony UnionPay Bank Cards, (including debit/saving cards, quasi-credit cards, credit cards), are accepted in Australia by the merchants with the UnionPay signs. Some merchants may not have put up the UnionPay label, so cardholders should inquire whether UnionPay cards are accepted.
When transacting through the UnionPay network, there is no commission fee for overseas card-users, and the currency exchange charge of 1% - 2% will also be exempt. The UnionPay will change the AUD amount into the RMB equivalent amount and deduct this amount from the cardholder’s RMB account.
All the ATMs with the UnionPay labels also accept cash withdrawals by UnionPay cards, which include all ATMs of NAB, HSBC, and Cashcard (ATMs in 7-Eleven). However, with CUP cards you cannot perform over-counter transfer and cash withdrawal transactions abroad.
