ANZ introduce new contactless payment method

ANZ introduce new contactless payment method

ANZ Fiji customers now have the convenience of 'tap and go' payments after the introduction of the contactless payment system to Fiji and six other Pacific countries with ANZ Visa Debit and Credit cards.

Contactless payment is a method that transmits purchase information via a tiny antenna embedded in the card.

Customers can 'tap and pay' at a contactless payment terminal anywhere in the world without entering their pin for transactions under $50.

ANZ Fiji Country Head Saud Minam says contactless payments increase convenience for customers and reduce the risk of cash handling as a means of spreading COVID-19.

Minam says contactless payments also reflect the shift they are seeing in customers shopping preferences.

He says this will enable Fijian businesses to adapt to these preferences and open up to more online transactions as people are gradually choosing to move away from cash payments.
