The service is an addition to its ASB Virtual mobile wallet. Similarly in December 2017, ANZ Bank partnered with Garmin Pay, allowing its card holders to make contactless payments via Garmin wearable devices. Additionally, the bank allows its card holders to make payments through other digital solutions such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay, in addition to its own mobile payment solution ANZ Mobile Pay.

- New Zealand’s buy-now pay-later service is gaining popularity. The service allows user to make payments for online or in-store purchases in interest-free instalments over four to six weeks. To use the service, customers are required to create an account with the service provider and link it with their preferred payment method, through which payments can be made. For instance, Australia-based payment solution provider Afterpay allows its users to make payments in four instalments on online and in-store purchases. In 2017, a number of PSPs including PartPay, Oxipay, and Laybuy launched this service in New Zealand.
- Alternative payments are gaining traction among New Zealanders with the emergence of a number of payment options, the most notable being Apple Pay in October 2016 and Android Pay in December 2016. Apple Pay enables users to make contactless in-store, in-app, and browser payments. In October 2017, Bank of New Zealand (BNZ) collaborated with Apple to become the second bank (after ANZ Bank) to offer Apple Pay to its customers. In December 2015, Visa launched its Visa Checkout online payment service in New Zealand, allowing consumers to make payments using just a username and password, without the need to disclose card details for each transaction.
