You can now set a PIN for your card, choose to stop receiving your credit card statements in the mail and set up an alert so you know when your credit card payment is due. It's also easier to set up automatic payments between your accounts and to payees.
Set the PIN for your EFTPOS, Visa Debit or Credit Card
Now you can set a PIN, or change it in Internet Banking for your ANZ EFTPOS, Visa Debit or credit card, rather than going to a branch.
It’s really easy – all you need to do it is select the ‘Set card PIN’ option under settings, set your PIN and you’re ready to use your card.
As signatures will no longer be accepted soon for purchases on credit cards issued in New Zealand, you’ll need to use a PIN to make a purchase, or use contactless for purchases under $80. Setting a PIN in Internet Banking is an easy way to get a PIN set up and avoid any issues when using your card. You may still be offered the option to sign for your purchase in some restaurants and cafés, however for most of your purchases you will soon be required to use a PIN.
Stop your credit card statements and set up an alert
If you'd prefer not to receive a paper statement and view it online instead, simply select 'Statement options' in Settings and follow the prompts.
In a few easy steps, you'll be saving paper, and have an alert set up, so you know when you can view your statement in Internet Banking, as soon as it's available and when you need to make a payment to your card.
Once you've chosen to turn your credit card statement off, you will be prompted to set up an alert so you know when your payment is due.
After you have entered your email address, you'll be able to choose to receive an email alert when your next credit card statement is available to view online.
You can now more easily set up automatic payments
We're always listening to feedback and following on from our last update where we added future dated transfers, we have now made it easier for you to set up automatic payments between your own accounts, as well as to saved and new payees.
To set up an automatic payment between your own accounts, select 'Transfer Funds' and select the 'Make this an automatic payment' option.
For payments to saved and new payees, choose the 'Make this an automatic payment' option under 'Pay a person or a bill'.
You can also skip an automatic payment by going to ‘Upcoming Payments’ and selecting 'View', then select the ‘Skip this payment’ link.
