ANZ FastPay, Australia’s first mobile payment App to offer small business owners same day settlement of merchant payments, has been recognised for ‘Channel Excellence in Mobile – Payments’ at the 2013 Banking & Payments Asia Trailblazer Awards in Singapore.
This follows an award earlier in the month for ‘Innovation in Mobile Payments’ by IDC Financial Insights.
ANZ General Manager of Small Business Banking Nick Reade said: “We’re pleased that ANZ FastPay has again been recognised as best-of-breed in mobile payments.
“The success of ANZ FastPay is not only reflected in the awards won, but also in more than 21,000 downloads of the App since its launch.”
ANZ FastPay is a key feature of ANZ’s Banking on Australia program, a $1.5 billion investment plan launched in October 2012 to make it easier for Australians to bank with ANZ.
“ANZ FastPay was developed to meet the unique needs of small business owners, who want to do their banking when and where it suits them, which increasingly means via digital and mobile banking channels,” Mr Reade said.
Commenting on the award ANZ General Manager Cards and Payments Marj Demmer said: “We’ve been focused on using innovation to make banking easier for small business customers, and I’m extremely proud that ANZ FastPay has been recognised by Asia’s leading publication for retail banking and payments.”
Key features of ANZ FastPay include:
- Secure processing of credit and debit card transactions with same day access to takings (for transactions settled before 6.30pm) in a linked ANZ Business Account.
- Payment receipts automatically sent to both customer and merchant following the transaction.
- Multiple businesses and users can be set up on the same iPhone or iPad.
- Multiple iPhones or iPads can process card sales simultaneously, with takings settled into a single ANZ Business Account
