Excellent news!!

Google Pay is now available at ASB, so you can now pay your way in-store or in-app using your Android phone. To get set up, follow the simple instructions below.

If you are still using ASB Virtual, our original Android payment service, switch over to Google Pay sooner rather than later as ASB Virtual won't be available from 16 July 2019.

Here's how to get set up.

Select 'Cards & devices' through the menu on the top left corner of your ASB Mobile Banking app (make sure it's the most up-to-date version).

Select the card you want to link to Google Pay.

Tap the Add to Google Pay option and follow the prompts.

Is there any functional difference between ASB Virtual and Google Pay?
I mean from an end-user perspective. I wouldn't be surprised if this is much easier from an app development perspective.

 

I have made a cursory attempt to find out, but it seems like the only thing this does for the end user is create a one-time minor inconvenience in having to switch over from existing configurations.

 

 

 

It's worth noting... while I got an email advising about Google Pay, which is what lead me to this thread. I never got anything telling me that my existing configuration will expire soon. I learned that from this thread.

Not sure I see what the difference is? 

 

What's the benefit over ASB virtual? As now Google gets details of every paywave transaction?

Benefit or not, you've got a month to change or you lose the functionality.

It's faster, more reliable, should work in chrome on the web.

Works with more smart watches.

Just a few things really but a positive change.

sdavisnz:It's faster, more reliable, should work in chrome on the web.

 

Can you please elaborate on this? or link me to something that acts as a guide?

 

"faster, more reliable" sounds like brochure language rather than anything users will notice.
The speed of the legacy ASB Virtual was pretty much instant - same as any other tap-to-pay solution. And the only reliability issues I ever had were with holding the wrong part of the phone against the terminal, different software isn't going to fix me not knowing my device.

 

I am interested in what you mean about working in chrome? I have no idea what you're referring to there.

This I like :) not that my current watch supports any payment mechanism :(

scottjpalmer: I saw it as a notification in the app

 

Really? I have not had any notification to that effect. The only notice I've seen of anything to do with this was the email... which just tells me Google Pay is available, how to set it up, and how to use it.

 

scottjpalmer: Benefit or not, you've got a month to change or you lose the functionality.

 

This thread remains the only place I've seen that information. It wasn't in the email, I didn't get notified in the app, and the ASB article makes no reference to the end of the existing virtual card option. I'm a lot less concerned about the impending end than I am about not being advised by the bank.

Agree this is the only place i've seen the 30 days.

 

The faster claims all seem to be compared to getting your card out of your wallet, not compared to ASB Virtual.

Apple have their apple pay in safari for paying on websites easier

I think google pay can do the same thing.

So at checkout on your mac/pc you can just select pay with google pay rather than type out your c.c details.

From then you might get a 2fa pop on your phone to approve the google pay purchase.

Idk I think that's how it works.

Hi NZLion, can we ask you to double check the email you received and let us know what is in the second paragraph? It should refer to ASB Virtual but if it doesn't then we can investigate further. Thank you!
