Bank of New Zealand (BNZ) has launched ‘Apple Pay,’ which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that is fast and convenient.
Apple Pay is now available to all BNZ customers with an eligible Apple device and eligible BNZ Visa card, and can be used where ever contactless payments are currently accepted.
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.
“We know our customers want an exceptional experience that will allow them to pay quickly, easily and securely on a range of devices here, online and overseas. We have been listening as they have been asking for Apple Pay and it is hugely exciting to be able to say it is here,” David Bullock, Director of Products and Technology at BNZ said.
“The introduction of Apple Pay is the latest offering from what is continuous digital development based on our customer feedback. Our key focus is to ensure that our customers’ lives dictate the way they bank, not the other way around. We do not want banking to feel restrictive or time consuming and the introduction of Apple Pay ensures we are one step closer to making this a reality,” Mr Bullock said.
Excitement on Visa
Marty Kerr, Visa New Zealand Country Manager said, “Visa is excited to be supporting another example of innovation in the payments space with BNZ, where they will be utilising the Visa Token Service.”
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all 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.
Simple and Fast
Online shopping in apps and on websites accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there is no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information.
