Can my SmartCard be used at a place that mostly sells alcohol and some food, such as pubs?

8 February 2023

You may be able to use your SmartCard to purchase goods and services at a store that mainly sells alcohol or other excluded goods (such as gambling products, tobacco, pornography or gift and prepaid cards) as well as other non-excluded goods or services (such as food or accommodation) if that store has arrangements in place not to process transactions that include excluded goods. These stores are referred to as “Participating Mixed Merchants”.
