The Commonwealth Bank has finally switched on Apple Pay for it’s customers - it is the second of the big four to do so and almost 2 years after ANZ broke ranks.
Back then, The Commonwealth Bank, along with Westpac and NAB applied to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission to negotiate Apple Pay as a consortium but were knocked back.
It’s now highly likely that Westpac and NAB will follow suit.
“Apple Pay is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay, that’s fast and convenient, and will be available to use with CBA and Bankwest personal debit and credit cards from today.
Angus Sullivan, Group Executive of Retail Banking Services, said: “Following the commitment we made to Commonwealth Bank customers in December, I’m delighted to announce that Apple Pay is available from today.
“We’re continuing to make mobile banking and payments simpler and easier for our customers with the launch of Apple Pay, alongside the CommBank app, rated number one in Australia and number three globally.
“In 2019, customers can expect us to continue listening, innovating, and providing the best possible experiences when they bank with us,” said Mr Sullivan.”Commonwealth
