gst refund in australia

seeking advice fr seasoned aussie travellers

im planning to buy and claim gst refund at syd airport

read online and the most practical refund mode is paid to a credit card. can ask fr refund via a debit card, as im using the multicurrency card which has aud wallet

if u pay in cash for the item purchase, can u present a (random) card for refund at the customs that wasnt used for purchase?

Haven't tried this myself, but since they can't give you cash refund, and tourists obviously wouldn't have an Australian bank account, and local cheques can't be used overseas, the only other method available is via credit card.

necessary to use the credit card for your purchase?

i would like to offload some AUD in cash, and seek refund via credit card which might not be used for payment

Doesn't matter the mode of payment for your purchase, as long you provide a card or local bank account, they will refund you
