New Zealand bank intros new Android Pay onboarding process
BNZ has announced that it is the first bank in the Asia-Pacific region to launch a new, easier way to set up cards in Android Pay.
The new "push provisioning" capability is now available to all BNZ customers who have a Flexi Debit Visa card and an Android device running KitKat 4.4 or above, according to a press release.
The latest update enables customers to set up their cards completely from within the BNZ mobile banking app, eliminating the need to bounce between BNZ and Android Pay apps as previously required.
"We were the first New Zealand launch partner for Android Pay in December last year and this latest update builds on this partnership, keeping us front and center in the mobile payments space," David Bullock, director of products and technology at BNZ, said in a statement. "We are constantly looking at ways to improve the payment experience for our customers and it's very exciting to be taking this next step."
