Default Load N Go - Now requires ID

Postoffice now requires you to put down ID before being allowed to purchase the Load n Go reloadables.

Can anyone recommend prepaid credit cards without requiring ID?

Up until around 3 months ago (estimate April 2017) I never had to supply ID. You only had to provide a mobile number.

There was a systems upgrade in the past month which I think has brought in some of these policy changes.

They only 'sight' your id. It isn't attached to your card in any way. They don't write down your details or anything. It's only so you can load funds via the app. It doesn't really make sense cause you could already bank transfer to the card.

I went to my local po, they look at the id, push "y" on the keyboard and then just went through the process as normal. didnt enter details, i asked why the id, the guy said for some reason they need to "sight" it. he didnt understand why nor did i. you dont need a memorable word anymore, just a phone number and access code.

Paypal blacklisted the bsb number so you can no longer link the card as a bank account

So apparently you now need two forms of id and you also have to present other details (email, address? i'm not sure, i didn't have enough id to complete the purchase). Also they told me you can only own a maximum of 6 cards now, but I can't find that mentioned anywhere on the new terms of service.

Okay so now when you purchase a card they actually make an Australia Post account for you. Your card will be pregistered then with your address, etc. hence why you need your licence and passport to make sure it is accurate. And you can only have a maximum of 5 load and go reloadable cards linked to the one account. Also if you get a replacement card/your card expires you have to go in store to reactivate it, so if you have a card under a different name and it expires you won't be able to reactivate it. There's 'no bank account needed' but the card is now as difficult to get as a bank account rendering them pointless.

Correct. You now have to pass what is an effectively 100 point ID check to buy a pre-paid Load+Go card so there's no point in having them anymore. If you already own a card then you don't have to do the ID check BUT when it expires you will be sent a new card and that will require you to present ID at the Post Office before it can be activated.

Australia Post will sales in this card plummet because you may as well go open a bank account will full banking access (no $250/week ATM limits, not $999 limits) so its unlikely these cards will be popular anymore.

Combine that with Woolworths and Coles both suddenly getting rid of all their prepaid cards at the same time and the nanny state has completely eradicated them. There's no viable prepaid cards left in this country anymore.

Considering Australia doesn't fall under AVS, couldn't you just register it under your name regardless and then attach it the same way stealth works? As in under a different name?

The Only1 Visa pre-paid card doesn't require ID, however, it is not re-loadable.

Yeah it's a gift card. The load and go gift card is much better if you don't care about having a reloadable card. Google reviews for the Only1 Visa card. It sounds like a nightmare.

I'm going to get a a Load and go in the next couple of days to check it out.
Got these at work, but can't remember all the details. They are a bit of a pain, the front end of their system (what the customer sees when they login and statements is screwed up completely in my experience).
Wesfarmers are Coles, Officeworks and ?

Purchased an Aussie post Visa Gift Card this morning. Not yet activated. No ID required to buy. Whether or not it works with what I want to do with it is another matter. It may yet be great for buying Sat. night Pizza.
