All ANZ credit and debit cards offer contactless payment technology - so paying for your everyday purchases is quick, secure and convenient.
Quick and convenient
You can use your ANZ credit or debit card, or your mobile wallet on your phone to make contactless payments at thousands of contactless terminals around the world - just look out for the Contactless symbol, and the Mastercard PayPass or Visa Paywave symbol.

Safety and security
Contactless payments use the same secure, reliable payment network as chip card transactions made with your ANZ credit and debit cards. Your information is kept safe using leading-edge security features and you’re protected against fraudulent transactions by ANZ’s Zero Liability Protection.disclaimer
You can make contactless payments with ANZ credit or debit cards with confidence:
Your information is encrypted before it’s sent from your card or phone to the contactless terminal, to ensure it can’t be obtained by an unauthorised card reader.
You can’t ‘accidentally’ make a payment just by walking past a contactless terminal or have payment taken twice – your card or phone has to be held close to the terminal for a second or two, the retailer must enter the amount first, and each transaction has to be complete before another can be made.
Your card or phone never leaves your hand, so you’re always in control.
For purchases over NZ$80 you may need to enter your card PIN.
Our sophisticated fraud monitoring system monitors your accounts and if it identifies unusual activity, we’ll block your card and contact you to make sure it’s really you making the transaction.
You’ll also be covered by Mastercard and Visa's Zero Liabilitydisclaimer protection should fraudulent transactions occur, provided you haven’t contributed to the loss in any way and you notify us that your card has been lost or stolen within a reasonable time.
It'll save you time - because you don't have to swipe, insert, sign or enter a PIN when you make a purchase for NZ$80 or less at a Mastercard PayPass or Visa Paywave merchant in New Zealand (transaction limits may vary for overseas merchants). And you won't have to worry about carrying notes and coins around. It’s fast and ideal at places where speed is essential, like at stadiums, fast food outlets and more. Plus, you'll still be able to swipe or insert your card whenever you need to. Also, as the card never leaves your hand, it's the secure way to pay for smaller purchases.
You can use your ANZ credit or debit card for any amount. If the purchase is over NZ$80, you may need to enter a PIN in New Zealand. Please note the purchase amount overseas will vary from country to country.
