Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) has partnered with South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics to offer Samsung Pay as a new mobile payments option for its customers.
Now, ANZ’s customers with an eligible Visa credit or debit card can use Samsung Pay to easily make secure purchases wherever contactless payments are accepted.
With the addition of Samsung Pay, ANZ has become the only bank in Australia to offer four payment solutions, including Apple Pay, Android Pay and its Android-based ANZ Mobile Pay.
Commenting on the partnership, ANZ managing director of 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.”
Samsung Pay can be used with a compatible Samsung device, including the Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones, and the Gear S3 smartwatch.
