Apple Pay support for BNZ was first announced earlier this month, though without a specific release date. The bank has since updated its website with details on how to set up Apple Pay and use it in store.

To help inaugurate Apple Pay rollout, BNZ is offering double rewards when users pay with Apple Pay:

BNZ Advantage Visa cardholders will earn double Fly Buys or Cash Rewards on eligible purchases made using Apple Pay until 10 January 2018.

Apple Pay is expected to come to a handful of new countries soon. It was reported last week that Apple Pay would expand to Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Poland this week. Meanwhile, Apple Pay head Jennifer Bailey offered an update on the platform over the weekend, touting that the service is available in more than 20 markets, with 50 percent of United States retailers accepting it.
