Apple Pay may be coming to Australian banks

Reports have emerged that ANZ Bank are currently testing Apple Pay’s paymemt technology.

Although the mobile payment service was launched in Australia late last year, only American Express card holders were able to access the service.

Neither tech giant Apple, nor ANZ bank have confirmed the speculation, however some bank customers are reportedly receiving confirmation emails and text messages that suggest the bank is testing both Apple and Android Pay functionality.

On the other hand, on a recently blog post, Google has said that its service, Android Pay was coming to Australian banks, including ANZ, St. George and Westpac “some time in the first half of 2016.”
