ANZ will release a mobile wallet later this year within ANZ goMoney, New Zealand’s most popular mobile banking app.
The wallet will be another enhancement to ANZ goMoney and will enable customers to make contactless payments with just one tap of their Android smart phones. The wallet will be available to around 120,000 customers during the launch later this year.
ANZ says the key benefit of the goMoney Wallet is that it will be within ANZ’s trusted mobile banking app, ANZ goMoney. This will remove the need for a separate app or SIM card upgrade. Payments can be made with just one tap.
“The ANZ goMoney Wallet will transform the way New Zealanders pay for goods and services,” says Liz Maguire, head of digital channels and transformation at ANZ.
Mobile wallet is the next evolution in payments, enabling customers to use smartphones to make everyday credit or debit card purchases – such as coffee, petrol or groceries.
