kiwitrc: So here is a basic question, do people who don't accept credit cards, accept debit cards? I am thinking in my case about the epicurean delights I purchase from Moore Wilson Wellington.

Yes, Moore Wilson certainly do as I use mine there often - I have never had my Visa Debit refused anywhere in NZ where an eftpos machine is available.

Except you are using eftpos not a debit card when you use them in terminals in NZ. That's why you have to choose check or savings.

Just a heads up, as posted in the Snapper in Semble (discussion and event) thread: confirming that both Miki (Snapper CEO) and Rob (Semble CEO) will be present. This means a unique opportunity to get these two together for some good Q&As folks...

sbiddle: The main advantage/disadvantage (depending on your view) with UICC based SE (ie Semble) is that it requires the mobile operators to be part of the solution. To gain traction it also requires every mobile network operator to be on board, something that's never happened anywhere except NZ.

Their are many advantages of this, it's easy to deploy OTA updates to update or disable the SE for example.

A couple of the main downsides have been carriers around the world deciding it's the perfect way to clip the ticket on such a solution, something banks and credit card companies haven't been happy with. Another is that it also requires a device with a UICC in it, whereas a HCE based solution can work on a device that may only have a WiFi connection.

And that is why I am waiting the ANZ HCE solution for myself, no Telco dependencies or risks

Now is there any update on ANZ as I am holding off getting a new handset until I know what one will work with their app
