Wondering what the hold up here is, and within what timeframe you expect to see Apple Pay rolled out to New Zealand? ANZ accepting it in Australia looked like a good sign, but it appears they don't seem to care about bringing it to NZ. I've also asked ASB a few times over the past year or so and all I get is the same generic response each time - Their solution seems to be sticking that silly pay tag thing on the back of your phone (not too keen on this!).
I'm really not sure if it's the banks or Apple causing the delay here - was tempted to try and open an Australian ANZ account just to use Apple Pay - super keen to try it out, me being the nerd I am.
