ASB Bank today brings its customers Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure, fast and
private way to pay.
Apple Pay is the latest addition to ASB’s suite of virtual payment options, making it simple and easy for customers to
pay in a way that is most convenient to them.
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When customers use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual
card numbers are not stored on the device, or on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned,
encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorised with a one-time
unique dynamic security code.
Simon Tong, ASB executive general manager digital, data and brand says the introduction of Apple Pay will give more than
500,000 ASB customers access to the innovative payments platform.
“We’re pleased to bring Apple Pay to ASB customers, offering them the ultimate in convenience and security," he said.
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and benets offered by credit and debit
cards. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, and Apple Watch.
Online shopping in apps and on websites accepting Apple Pay is simple with Touch ID, or just double-click the side
button and authenticate with a glance with Face ID. There’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or
repeatedly type in shipping and billing information with Apple Pay. When paying for goods and services in apps or
Safari, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad (5th Generation and later), iPad Air 2, and
iPad mini 3 and later. You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra
and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch, or with Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro.
