Another Mobile First For Westpactrust

WestpacTrust customers are once again first to get a new way of topping up their mobile phones – this time via their telephone banking service.

All Vodafone prepay customers who use the bank’s telephone service now have the option to top up their airtime balances either from a landline or mobile phone.

The transaction is instant and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Customers can pay for the airtime directly from their savings or cheque account.

Any whole dollar amount from $20 can be selected and transactions are confirmed via a free text message to the mobile number that has been topped up.

Vodafone New Zealand’s Marketing Director, Chris Taylor, said that the new service was yet another convenient way for prepay customers to top up their mobiles.

“The increasing number of electronic options are making it possible for Vodafone customers to ensure they’re in contact wherever they are, whatever the time of day or night,” said Mr Taylor.

WestpacTrust was also the first New Zealand bank to offer customers realtime top ups at it’s ATMs around the country in February this year.

"The introduction of Vodafone topups through the WestpacTrust ATM network was very successful. Expanding the service to include phone banking reflects an ongoing commitment by WestpacTrust and Vodafone to give our customers even greater convenience," said WestpacTrust General Manager Online Services Phil Doak.

WestpacTrust’s telephone banking can be accessed by calling 0800 172172 from a landline or 09 915 6666 (Auckland), 04 915 6666 (Wellington) or 03 926 6666 (South Island) from a mobile. The top up facility is under the Transfer Funds or Bill Payments section.
