NAB has switched on Apple Pay for its customers, the latest of the big four banks to welcome the tech giant’s payment service.
The bank hinted last year it was open to making the payment service available to its customers.

Previously, ANZ was the only bank to have the feature for its customers with the other big four banks boycotting Apple Pay in favour of their own payment service, Beem It.
However, Commonwealth Bank reversed its original decision signing a deal with the Cupertino company in December last year.
Apple Pay provides customers the option to pay with their iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad or Mac. It is available for NAB personal and business customers with an eligible NAB Visa debit or credit card.
Rachel Slade, chief customer experience officer at NAB said, “We’ve been hearing from customers that they want Apple Pay and it’s great to be able to launch this service today.
“We’re continuing to listen to customer feedback and take action to become the bank our customers want.
“As part of our transformation we are investing significantly in our technology and digital services to support our customers to manage their money how they choose.”
Westpac is the only big four bank without Apple Pay yet commentators suspect that may change this year.
Other Australian banks with Apple Pay include ING, Bankwest, Australia Bank and HSBC.
