ANZ extends Apple Pay offering with the choice of using eftpos

By

ANZ has extended its Apple Pay offering, which gives its Access Advantage Visa debit card customers "the option to choose cheque or savings accounts via eftpos with Apple Pay".

From today, we're advised that "millions of ANZ’s debit cardholders can now choose eftpos when paying with Apple Pay on an iPhone or Apple Watch".

"This provides the ability to make purchases and withdraw cash at the checkout of participating merchants when customers choose cheque or savings".

ANZ Customer Engagement lead Kath Bray said: “ANZ is continually looking for ways to improve our customers’ payment experiences and this gives our three million Access Advantage Visa debit cardholders more choice when making payments using Apple Pay.

“Customers will still enjoy the same high level of convenience and security they have become used to with Apple Pay and eftpos,” Bray said.

eftpos managing director Stephen Benton said: "eftpos research shows payment choice is hugely important to customers and we’re excited ANZ debit cardholders will for the first time have the option to select eftpos to make a transaction from their CHQ or SAV account with Apple Pay."

As ANZ and the eftpos people remind us, "security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that’s fast and convenient.

"When customers use an ANZ debit card with Apple Pay, the 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 the device.

"Each transaction is authorised with a one-time unique dynamic security code.

"Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of 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."
