The CBA, along with Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, National Australia Bank and Westpac, attempted to cut a deal with Apple over Apple Pay in 2017, but 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.
“We are extending Apple Pay to business customers because they asked for it, and it’s part of our commitment to listen to our customers, put their needs first and take action to become a simpler, better bank.
"Delivering simple, intuitive digital payment solutions that provide choice and convenience, will continue to be a key focus for us in 2019.”
