Apple Pay available now for CBA, Bankwest customers Featured

The Commonwealth Bank has announced that Apple Pay will be available to use with personal debit and credit cards from CBA and Bankwest from today (Wednesday, 23 January).

Angus Sullivan, group executive of CBA's Retail Banking Services, said in a statement: “Following the commitment we made to Commonwealth Bank customers in December, I’m delighted to announce that Apple Pay is available from today.

“We’re continuing to make mobile banking and payments simpler and easier for our customers with the launch of Apple Pay, alongside the CommBank app, rated number one in Australia and number three globally.

“In 2019, customers can expect us to continue listening, innovating, and providing the best possible experiences when they bank with us.”

Apple’s vice-president of Internet Services Jennifer Bailey said: “We are excited to welcome Commowealth Bank customers to Apple Pay, the number one mobile contactless payment service worldwide.

"Customers can now take advantage of the speed, convenience and security that Apple Pay offers when making payments on the Apple devices they love to use every day.”

CBA announced on 14 December 2018 that it would be making the payment option available to its own customers and those of Bankwest from this month onwards.

Commonwealth Bank, along with Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, National Australia Bank and Westpac, attempted to cut a deal with Apple over Apple Pay, but in 2017 the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission denied them the right to negotiate collectively.

Subsequently, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank quietly adopted Apple Pay.

ANZ was not part of this cartel, and has been offering Apple Pay since April 2016.

Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad (5th Generation and later), iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later.

One can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch, or with Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro.
