The Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ANZ) today announced its customers in Australia can now use Samsung Pay to easily make secure purchases wherever contactless payments are accepted.
The introduction of Samsung Pay marks the fourth mobile payment service ANZ offers its Australian customers and further enhances the bank’s leadership position in using digital technology to offer a superior customer experience.
Commenting on the partnership, ANZ Managing Director Products, Bob Belan said:
Our customers have been asking for this and we have listened. It made sense for us to introduce Samsung Pay in Australia given its strong market share and open approach to technology that its customers highly value.
ANZ customers are now best placed to select which mobile payment service they want to use and with the addition of Samsung Pay we continue to offer the best range of the major banks in Australia,” Mr Belan added.
Samsung Pay is a simple and secure mobile payment service available to ANZ customers with an eligible Visa credit or debit card and a compatible Samsung device, including the Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones, and the Gear S3 smartwatch.
ANZ is the only major Australian bank to offer customers four mobile payment services across both Android and IOS devices.
