ANZ customers can now withdraw cash and deposit money from ANZ ATMs using their VISA card Apple Pay or another mobile wallet of choice. This now means if you use Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Pay, Garmin Pay and Fitbit Pay you can just tap your device on the ATM instead of worrying about having your plastic card with you.
ANZ has 2400 ATMs across Australia that support this new service.
ANZ Customer Engagement Lead Kath Bray said: “We are determined to bring our customers new banking experiences so they can access their money the way they want to”.
If you don’t know what Apple Pay is, its a mobile wallet on all your Apple devices. If you bank with ANZ, Bendigo / Adelaide Bank, ING, Macquarie or other financial institutions you can add your credit and debit cards to Apple Wallet. Instead of tapping your plastic card you just tap your iPhone or Apple Watch.
Apple Pay also works online and in-app and its the fastest payment method out there. When setting up Apple Pay fill out your Billing and Shipping details and checkout on thousands of websites like eBay (later this year) and JB Hi-Fi in one click.
Apple Pay is also the most secure way to pay, every time you use your card a different number is given to the merchant, so if that reader is compromised your data is never put in the wrong hands. To authenticate the payment it’s your face on iPhone X and Xs and your fingerprint on older iPhones.
If you’re interested in setting up Apple Pay go to the Wallet app on your iPhone and click the blue plus button on the top right. Then follow the prompts.
