Add an additional cardholder

If you would like to allow a close friend or family member to make purchases on your ANZ Credit Card account, in some circumstances they can be issued with a card of their own. ANZ refers to such a person as an "additional cardholder".

The "Add an additional cardholder" function makes adding an additional cardholder to your ANZ Credit Card easy. All you need to do is complete the cardholder's details and accept a declaration of your responsibilities as the primary cardholder.

Note: Although additional cardholders can charge their purchases to your ANZ Credit Card account, you are still responsible for meeting the repayment obligations.
