In a statement, NAB chief customer experience officer Rachel Slade said the new Apple Service went live on Tuesday morning (21 May), and would enable customers with an eligible Visa debit or credit card to make purchases using their Apple devices.
“We’ve been hearing from customers that they want Apple Pay, and it’s great to be able to launch this service today,” she said.
“We’re continuing to listen to customer feedback and take action to become the bank our customers want.
“As part of our transformation, we are investing significantly in our technology and digital services to support our customers to manage their money how they choose.”
According to NAB, it will be contacting eligible customers directly to advise them on the new service and how to go about using it.
The service will be offered to customers using:
- an iPhone SE, iPhone 6 or later model
- an Apple Watch Series 1 or later model
- an iPad with Touch ID and Face ID
- a Mac PC with Touch ID
NAB is touting the launch as “an easy, secure and private way to pay” for Apple product owners.
