Myer launches Visa card with Apple Pay and Android Pay

By

Issued by Macquarie Bank, upmarket retailer Myer lets its customers link its new credit card to Apple Pay and Android Pay, and is reported as the first retailer to do so.

Naturally, the card allows the earning of points in Myer's loyalty programme, but of greater note than that is the compatibility with two major smartphone wallet systems, but no Samsung Pay as yet.

Myer chief executive and managing director Richard Umbers said: "We are excited to be bringing Android Pay and Apple Pay to the new Myer Credit Card. The card will provide our customers with an easier way to pay and reward them for their loyalty.

“We are delighted with our partnership with Macquarie and Visa which will further accelerate the growth of Myer’s digital capability.”

Visa's A/NZ country manager Stephen Karpin said: “It’s an exciting time for retail in Australia, with digital technology driving new and imaginative commerce experiences, and how people pay is at the heart of these experiences. It’s for this reason we’re delighted to be working with Myer and Macquarie Bank to bring the future of commerce to Australians today."

Macquarie Bank's head of Banking and Financial Services Greg Ward said: "For many years we have offered credit card products directly and through white label arrangements, and this is the latest step in supporting innovative digital banking solutions for Australians.

"We look forward to working with Myer to provide customers with a leading digital credit card experience that empowers them in managing their finances.”

The news was reported by several outlets but there's no sign of the news at Myer's media releasesnor Visa'snor Macquarie Bank's, which is annoying and weird, but there you go.
