Customers in Papua New Guinea and Samoa are now able to do their banking using their mobile phones.
Since launching ANZ goMoneyTM in the Pacific, in June, more than 30,000 customers have been registered, about 2,700 each week.
Promoting financial inclusion in the Pacific is a priority for ANZ, particularly for customers in remote and rural areas. Up to 75% of people in the Pacific don’t have access to traditional banking services; but around 85% of people own a mobile phone. ANZ goMoneyTM allows customers to access their bank account via a mobile phone, enabling us to provide them with a simpler way to access financial services.
Through accredited and trained ANZ goMoneyTM merchants, customers can securely pay for goods and deposit and withdraw their money in locations convenient to them without the need to go to a branch. They can also send money to family and friends (regardless of whether they have a bank account) pay bills, buy mobile phone credit, transfer money between their accounts, and check their account balance and transaction history using their mobile phone.
ANZ goMoneyTM will be launched in the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu in September and October respectively.
