December 2017 Mobile Banking App update
1 Dec 2017
The Tap & Pay feature within our Mobile Banking App was switched off in December 2017. When the Tap & Pay functionality was launched in our banking app the technology was market leading and while it continues to provide a secure method for contactless payments via an Android phone, newer technology now exists in the form of Google PayTM and Samsung Pay.
Given the majority of members have a stronger preference for both Google Pay and Samsung Pay (and Apple Pay for Apple users) we have made the decision not to upgrade the Tap & Pay service within our Mobile Banking App and instead switch it off. Our Mobile Banking App will continue to offer all the other functionality you know and love, like:
- Checking your balances and viewing your account history
- Transferring money between your accounts
- Paying your bills via BPAY
- Transferring money to other financial institutions
- Accessing financial calculators
There is no reason for you to stop using your phone to make easy everyday purchases. We have made both Google PayTM and Samsung Pay available for you, so you can choose the solution that works for you and your phone.
Google Pay™ is a digital wallet app enabling users with Android phones or tablets to make payments via their device.
Accepted virtually anywhere, Samsung Pay lets you carry your Visa Credit Card, debit and loyalty cards on your Samsung mobile.
