Heritage Bank integrates Apple Pay on payments platform

By

Australian customer-owned bank Heritage Bank has announced the integration of Apple Pay on its payment platform.

According to Heritage Bank, the arrival of Apple Pay comes at an important time, with the bank seeing an uplift in the use of contactless and digital payment solutions in the wake of COVID-19.

“Apple Pay is accepted wherever contactless payments are accepted, including grocery stores, pharmacies, taxis, restaurants, coffee shops, retail stores, and many more places,” the bank said on Tuesday when launching the integration of Apple Pay.

Peter Lock, Heritage Bank CEO, said, "We are thrilled to announce that Heritage customers can now use Apple Pay to make fast and secure payments. With impacts of COVID-19 changing everyday life, it’s more important than ever we support our customers to make contactless digital payments simply and safely. 

“We are continuing to listen, learn and innovate and are absolutely thrilled to build on our goal of supporting our customers with great payment experiences through Apple Pay.”

Heritage says the introduction of Apple Pay will give its customer a “safer, more secure and private way” to pay that helps avoid handing their payment card to “someone else, touching physical buttons or exchanging cash — and uses the power of iPhone to protect every transaction”.

“Customers simply hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a payment terminal to make a contactless payment. Every Apple Pay purchase is secure because it is authenticated with Face ID, Touch ID, or device passcode, as well as a one-time unique dynamic security code.

“With the arrival of Apple Pay, it’s now even easier for Heritage customers with Apple devices to pay for goods and services in stores, via apps or online without the need for a card or wallet,” Heritage concluded.
