With the updated app, originally launched just four months ago in July this year, users will now be able to pay new payees and BPAY billers, securely confirm new payees with Westpac Protect SMS code, view, modify and approve pending payments, create multiple payments and use payment templates (business online customers), and find the nearest Westpac branch or ATM using the Locator tool.
According to Westpac Group Executive, Retail and Business Banking, Jason Yetton, the bank is now placed at the “forefront of digital innovation.”
“We want to offer our customers choice and convenience. It’s banking 24/7, whenever and wherever it suits them, giving customers the opportunity to do online, everything they can do in a branch. We are committed to providing game changing mobile solutions that make banking easier for our customers.
Yetton says that since its launch four months ago, the “innovative” iPad app has proved extremely popular with customers, with over 100,000 downloads, over 1.2 million banking sessions and payments totalling $425 million.
“It remains the number one app in the iTunes finance category, and fourteenth overall in the free apps category.”
The updated Westpac Banking App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
