In a bid to give customers even more ways to access their funds, ANZ has today they’re equipping 2,400 ATMs across Australia with technology to allow you to withdraw money with your phone or watch.
Customers will be able access their funds using their choice of digital wallet, covering Google Pay, Samsung Pay, Garmin Pay, Fitbit Pay…and Apple Pay.
ANZ says that customers will simply have to wave their mobile payments device over the contactless reader on a compatible ANZ ATM, select the eligible card, and enter their four digit pin to access their banking.
As well as withdrawing cash, customers will also be able to complete all ATM activities with their smartphone or watch; including changing their PIN, depositing money at SMART ATM, account transfers and balance enquiries.
ANZ says that they have more than a million customers currently using a digital wallet with an ANZ-issued card inside. Statistics for usage on mobile payments saw ANZ customers making more than 57 million mobile payment transactions worth more than $1.83 billion between October 2017 and August 2018, an increase of 150% over the same period 12 months previously.
Commenting on the launch, ANZ Customer Engagement Lead Kath Bray said:
We are determined to bring our customers new banking experiences so they can access their money the way they want to. With the high adoption rates of contactless payments in Australia, our customers will be some of the first in the world to use their mobile devices to withdraw cash in addition to making payments. We know this is something our customers will appreciate.
ANZ is currently the only one of the ‘Big Four’ banks in Australia to offer all five digital wallet solutions from Samsung, Apple, Google, Fitbit and Garmin. ANZ shutdown their own tap & pay app earlier this year in favour of using digital wallet solutions from their partners
