Apple Pay continues NAB charm offensive

NAB Customers Are Finally Gonna Be Able To Use Apple Pay From Today

NAB Customers Are Finally Gonna Be Able To Use Apple Pay From Today

The only major Australian bank not offering Apple Pay is Westpac, to the exasperation of customers on social media.

Other Australian banks with Apple Pay include ING, Bankwest, Australia Bank and HSBC. Compatible NAB personal and business accounts are supported.

Westpac hasn't advised its customer of when Apple Pay will be available to them, but hopefully, it's sooner rather than later.

NAB, alongside Westpac Banking Corporation, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) and Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, had previously joined forces to go after Apple and its control over its own near-field communication (NFC) technology.

"We've been hearing from customers that they want Apple Pay and it's great to be able to launch this service today".

Apple Pay gives iPhone owners the ability to make contactless payments from their NAB credit and debit cards.

For millions, the devices are cheap-but-quality alternatives to the $1,000 phones America's hardware champion Apple Inc. peddles. Benjamin Cavender: I think domestically this will not affect Google very much. "Many people are very anxious about that too".

NAB customers can already take advantage of Google Pay, Android Pay, Fitbit Pay and Garmin Pay.

Slade added: "We're continuing to listen to customer feedback and take action to become the bank our customers want".

But, after the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission turned down the proposal, CBA broke ranks late a year ago and chose to offer Apple Pay. Commonwealth Bank (CommBank) added support in January, while ANZ and small banks have supported it from the beginning.

Simply put, there are plenty of ways to get mobile payments going in your life, you just mostly need to be using a bank that supports one.

NAB has switched on Apple Pay for its customers, the latest of the big four banks to welcome the tech giant's payment service.

It's no wonder the banks have given in to the customer's demands.
