Using your credit card
Stay in control
Manage your credit card settings in the BNZ app. You can block your card if you’ve misplaced it, then unblock it once it’s safely back in your hands. You can also turn Visa payWave or Mastercard Tap & Go™ on or off in the app.
Apple Pay. Your new, easy way to pay is here
Now you can pay for everything from takeout to taxis with your BNZ Flexi Debit Visa, eligible Visa credit cards and Apple Pay.
Our cards come with these security features
Cover for fraud
If you buy something online and don’t receive it, or return an item and don’t get a refund, our NetPromise policy means we can help get your money back if you let us know within 30 days of getting your statement.
Our liquid encryption technology updates the security information on your card’s magnetic strip every time you use it at a BNZ ATM. This helps us detect if your card has been copied without your knowledge.
