Another super provider lowers its fees and Google aims to simplify online payments.

The latest news in financial innovation.

Pay With Google launches to simplify online payments

Google has introduced a new payment technology that removes the need for you to fill out your payment details for online transactions. Pay with Google essentially lets you save debit and credit cards in your Google account and then select your preferred card at the checkout when shopping online.

RaboDirect launches augmented reality app

As part of its Financial Health Barometer, RaboDirect has launched a free augmented reality app to draw attention to how food waste is linked to savings. The Feel Good AR app shows users how savings can grow no matter how little someone starts with, similar to the growth of a strawberry bush from seeds.

GROW Super reduces its fees

Super fund GROW Super has announced it will be lowering its fees as well as changing how members choose their insurance cover. The fund will now charge 0.95% plus $1.65 per week, down from 1.85% p.a. and customers will be able to customise and self-select their insurance. The move comes just a few weeks after rival Spaceship announced it would also lower its fees.
