Apple Pay arrives for St.George, BankSA and Bank of Melbourne customers

19 December 2019

Offering an easy, secure and private way to pay

Apple Pay is now available for St.George, BankSA and Bank of Melbourne customers with an eligible Visa debit or credit card. With Apple Pay, customers can make fast and convenient purchases in stores, in apps and on participating websites.

In addition, Westpac Group has committed to delivering Apple Pay for Westpac customers by June 2020.

David Lindberg, Westpac Group Chief Executive, Consumer, said launching Apple Pay for customers has been a priority since being appointed to lead the bank’s consumer division earlier in the year.

“We’re excited to introduce Apple Pay for St.George, Bank of Melbourne and BankSA, as part of our commitment to changing our business to better meet the needs of our customers.

“We want to assure Westpac customers we are working to bring them Apple Pay as quickly as possible, while we roll-out the technology across our different banking platforms,” Mr Lindberg said.

Apple Pay is easy to set up and customers with an eligible Visa debit or credit card will continue to receive all of the rewards and benefits offered by St.George, BankSA and Bank of Melbourne.

With iPhone and Apple Watch, customers can pay with Apple Pay in stores, restaurants, taxis, vending machines and many more places. When shopping in apps or on the web in Safari with Apple Pay, there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information. Every Apple Pay purchase is authenticated with just a glance or a touch with Face ID or Touch ID, or a device's passcode.
