ANZ, the first Australian bank which brought Apple Pay to their customers has expanded support even further by enabling eftpos cards.
The announcement sees ANZ being the first bank in Australia to bring innovative new services and features to their customers for the second time.
Apple Pay Eftpos
The partnership between ANZ, eftpos Australia and Apple will see 1.6 million ANZ customers who use eftpos Access Cards being able to make purchases in-stores around Australia by using Apple Pay – Apple’s secure mobile payment system.
eftpos Acting CEO, Mr Paul Jennings, said Apple Pay with eftpos will provide ANZ eftpos Access cardholders with the ability to make eftpos purchases on their iPhone or Apple Watch using their own money, processed in real time.
This means they will be able to make payments in-stores wirelessly by using their iPhone or even Apple Watch with the added benefit of security. They will not have to share their card details with the merchant and their account preference can be set whether it is cheque or savings (CHQ/SAV).
