Apple Pay Coming to ANZ New Zealand’s customers
Offering an easy, secure and private way to pay
ANZ New Zealand today brings its customers Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that’s fast and convenient.
Apple Pay will be available to customers with a Visa Debit or personal ANZ Visa credit card.
ANZ CEO New Zealand David Hisco said: “More than 50 per cent of ANZ Visa transactions are contactless and this number is steadily increasing as more retailers adopt contactless technology. Adding Apple Pay to our mobile payment offering will make it fast and convenient for more customers to securely make every day purchases wherever there is a contactless terminal.”
“Following on from our highly successful goMoney mobile banking app, ANZ is pleased to continue leading the industry with innovative solutions for customers.”
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorised with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
ANZ New Zealand Head of Digital and Transformation Liz Maguire said: “Our customers asked us for Apple Pay and we’re thrilled they can now use it, continuing our commitment to giving our customers innovative digital ways to do their banking. We’re confident they will enjoy this easy, simple and secure way to pay without having to present cards or cash.”
Apple Pay can be used anywhere you can tap and pay in New Zealand, including at major retailers: BP, The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationery, Noel Leeming, Torpedo 7, McDonalds, Domino’s Pizza and Burger King.
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benets offered by credit and debit cards. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, and Apple Watch.
Online shopping in apps and on websites accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. When paying for goods and services on the go in apps or Safari, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later. You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch.
