Is that what its called? I will leave alone the obvious pun that it needs to be a bloody big wallet then!

Sorry So I keep on seeing snatches of info that finally we will get a wallet application in our phones, now that apple has taken it on.
A. Do we have it already?
B. Is there one for Android
C. Will it work in NZ

I've been using nfc payments for a few years in Japan via android. I have also heard that banks are working on it here in NZ and will be available in the near future. I'm not entirely sure how apple pay will fit in with this though. From what I have heard it is not compatible with the current system in Japan already in widespread use.

Apple Pay
it requires NFC which is only in the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus hardware
Only US announced so far
can't imagine Apple will release it for Android since its tied into the Touch ID auth

ahh so the usual small market wait. Why is it with some product they use us to market test and other we have to wait 5 years!

Expect to see at least one bank in NZ launch Android payments using HCE in the not too distant future.

As mentioned above, Visa NZ have already stated that they'll be supporting it but I'm not entirely sure if they'll be supporting it come launch in NZ. There's already been talk of an app (not related to Apple) for NFC payments - see here.

Does anyone know whether it uses the same reader hardware as Paywave or whether it needs Apple-specific hardware? I can't see too many places adding Apple Pay hardware after recently buying Paywave hardware.

TSM has been around for years now, still failing to deliver anything other than lofty press releases.

I'm sure many banks will launch NFC payments for Samsun... er, Android smartphones in the near future.

NFC payments are going to be great. The more things I can use my phone for, the merrier.

It's not my place to say anything, but I can definitely tell you to keep your eyes and ears peeled for something coming from them in the coming months :)

"Siri - pay my electricity bill please."

"which card do you wish to use, my Lord?"

"My ASB Visa"

"The bill is $210. Do you wish to pay the full amount?"

"Yes please, Siri."

"Ready to pay. Please place your finger on the Home button to confirm payment."


THAT is where I want it to get to!!

I had a thought on this, it'd be great to be able to leave the house without my wallet. Soon, we'll be able to pay via our phones, store loyalty cards will also probably be able to linked to an app on our phones. All that is great. What about our drivers licences though? At the moment, it looks like we'll still have to carry those, which will be a little bit annoying, just having to carry one card.

Guess it's better than 5 though...

Total aside but when I was back in the UK briefly in June I noticed my mother had 'mini' loyalty cards attached to her car keys.

They are essentially just the barcode or magnetic strip miniaturised with the shop logo so that you can pop in and since 9 times out of 10 you have your car keys, you'll have your loyalty card too.

Good idea I thought. Haven't seen it here yet: has anyone?
