ANZ partners with Samsung Pay
It's now the only Big Four bank that boasts both Apple Pay and Samsung Pay.
ANZ customers can now use their Samsung device to tap and pay at the checkout. Announcing its new partnership with Samsung Pay today, ANZ joins Westpac and more than 40 other Australian banks and institutions on the Samsung network.
The digital wallet is available to all ANZ credit and debit card customers who have an eligible Samsung device, including the Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones as well as the Gear S3 smartwatch.
ANZ is now the only Big Four bank that gives its credit and debit cardholders the choice of using Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay, which are the three biggest players in the digital wallet space right now.
"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 all the major banks in Australia," said ANZ's managing director of products Bob Belan.
Some other banks, such as American Express, offer Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Android Pay, though. You can use our contactless payments guide to compare the banks by the digital wallets they offer.
How does it work?
When you reach the checkout, open Samsung Pay with an upward swipe on your phone to view and select the eligible ANZ card you wish to use. You can then authorise your payment with your Samsung Pay four-digit PIN, your fingerprint or an iris scan. Yep, the future is here.
