The National Australia Bank (NAB) has finally enabled Apple Pay, Apple’s wireless payment service. Allowing its customers to make wireless and secure payments from their iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch.
Today’s announcement makes NAB the third of the ‘big four’ banks to support Apple Pay. ANZ became the first big bank to bring support in 2016, while NAB, Westpac, and Commbank decided to take Apple to the ACCC. They lost. Now it seems they have decided to listen to their customers, with Commbank caving in earlier in the year.
NAB’s Chief Customer Experience Officer Rachel Slade went on to say “We’ve been hearing from customers that they want Apple Pay and it’s great to be able to launch this service today. And that “As part of our transformation we are investing significantly in our technology and digital services to support our customers to manage their money how they choose.”.
Apple Pay is available for personal and business NAB customers with an eligible NAB Visa debit or credit card. Those eligible customers can make payments in-store and online. In a secure way because their card number is never shared or saved on their device. And all payments are securely authenticated using Face ID, Touch ID or their device passcode.
