Hopefully, this will come to NZ soon as it makes Apple Pay a whole lot more useful for those that don't wish to pay for things on a credit card.





When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

 


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.

Pretty much the response I would expect at this stage. They won't tell you it's coming until it's about to drop.

EFTPOS in NZ is not contactless ,

 

While in Australia it is and offers "tap and pay" for EFTPOS transactions, (as opposed to VISA debit etc)

Yip, hence "apparently".

One of the advantages of EFTPOS is the merchants paying a flat fee, presumably that would be lost with Apple wanting some Apple tax on every transaction.

Apple Pay isn’t just for credit cards in NZ. ANZ will let you add a VISA Debit card via Apple Pay.
