I’m happy to say that Android Pay is here and you can start using it today!
If you have a BNZ Flexi Debit card and an Android device OS 4.4 or higher you can download the app and start using it immediately.
The benefits of being able to pay with your phone are somewhat obvious, but I’m really excited about the future of ecommerce improvements, in-app and on Google Chrome, that partnering with Google will allow for our customers.
This is just for Flexi Debit customers at this stage, but it’s only the beginning of the Cards work we have planned, adding Visa Credit Cards is definitely on our list for the not too distant future.
If you have an EFTPOS card, and want to upgrade to a Flexi Debit, you can do that here - https://www.bnz.co.nz/personal-banking/everyday-banking/everyday-cards/upgrade-to-a-flexi-debit-visa-card.
To set up Android Pay, you will need the latest version of the BNZ app and the Android Pay app, the whole process should only take a couple of minutes.

Let me know how you get on, or of any improvements you would like to see around BNZ Cards on the Mobile apps?
