Aussies join wave to pay

Australians can now use their smart phones to pay for lunch at their local cafe, buy a copy of the latest bestseller or purchase groceries, following the launch of the latest Visa contactless mobile payments pilot in Sydney and Melbourne.

ANZ, one of Australia’s top four banks, has joined with Visa to trial mobile payments using the In2Pay technology developed with DeviceFidelity.

Fifty staff members are participating in the pilot and have been given a special protective iPhone case with a secure microSD memory card that allows them to turn their phone into a virtual wallet.

The participants will be able to make payments by waving their phone in front of a contactless reader at any of the more than 20,000 retail outlets across Australia that already accept Visa payWave.

Watch this video to find out more about the trial.
