ASB introduces ASB Virtual, contactless payment for Android phones
ASB Virtual launches today, turning ASB customers’ compatible Android phones into their ASB Visa credit or debit card.
ASB Virtual is available to ASB Visa credit and debit card customers who have the latest version of the ASB Mobile banking app on their Android phone.
ASB general manager payments Matt Bartlett is delighted to offer customers another seamless way to pay.
“ASB Virtual is, essentially, a digital wallet providing our customers the convenience of paying via their phone. Mobile phones have almost become like an extension of our arm – we talk with it, text with it, tweet, play and ‘like’ with it, so now we’re thrilled our customers can conveniently pay with their phone, too,” Mr Bartlett says.
Once added to the ASB Mobile app, ASB Virtual is ready to use. Customers can add ASB Virtual to any number of ASB Visa credit and debit credit cards available in the ASB Card Control app.
The first ASB Virtual card the customer sets up will become the ‘always on’ card and will be used automatically when making a payment. However, customers can elect an alternative card, or manage settings as they would any card, from within the Card Control function of the ASB Mobile app.
