Apple Pay to be offered by HSBC credit cards

HSBC has introduced Apply Pay for its credit card customers, joining 50 other Australian Banks and Credit Card Unions.

HSBC joins growing number of banks offering Apple Pay

Graham Heunis, Head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management at HSBC Australia said that the bank had launched Apple Pay in five other global markets, and was looking forward to bringing it to its Australian credit card customers.

“The majority of our customers’ credit card payments are contactless and our experience in other markets shows us we can expect an increase in contactless payments as customers rapidly adopt Apple Pay,” he said.

For now, the mobile payment platform is available to HSBC credit cardholders with either a Visa or MasterCard issued by the bank, though Heunis said there were plans to roll out Apply Pay for debit cardholders in the coming weeks.

Apple Pay technology offers customers an easy, fast way to spend. And rewards card lovers can rest easy, as cardholders will continue to earn credit card rewards while using Apple Pay.

For online shopping through an app or a browser, Apple Pay works with devices including iPhone 6 and later, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later.

For customers who opt to use Apple Pay at the check out, the technology is compatible with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and Apple Watch.

HSBC joins almost 50 banks and credit unions that have already signed up to offer Apple Pay since its launch in Australia in late 2015. Currently, ANZ remains the only Big Four bank to get on board, see our guide on credit cards with Apple Pay to review the full list of banks that now offer Apple Pay.
