BP Welcomes Apple Pay to New Zealand

MEDIA RELEASE
13 October 2016

APPLE PAY COMING TO BP CUSTOMERS

Offering an Easy, Secure and Private Way to Pay

BP 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.

With Apple Pay now available for in-store payment across BP’s entire New Zealand network, both BP and ANZ banking customers are set to benefit.

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.

BP General Manager of Retail Debi Boffa says: “We are proud to offer our New Zealand customers Apple Pay. They have been asking us for faster and simpler purchasing and we believe that Apple Pay really delivers them with that. We’re always listening to our customers and looking for new ways to improve their in-store experience, so this is a really exciting space for us.”

Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by credit and debit cards. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, and Apple Watch. For more information on Apple Pay, visit: http://www.apple.com/apple-pay/
