You can make deposits into your account using a BNZ Smart ATM or by visiting a branch.

Smart ATMs

We’ve introduced Smart ATMs into our branches so you won’t need to queue to see a teller when making deposits. We’ve also installed Smart ATMs outside branches so you can access them anytime. Check out our video tutorials to learn how to make the most of using Smart ATMs.

Find a Smart ATM

Coin deposits

Some of our Smart ATMs have sidecars that allow you to deposit your coins without needing a bag or deposit slip.

You can now deposit notes and coins in one go at any of our Smart ATMs with coin sidecars. These ATMs are currently available at selected BNZ branches. Find a BNZ Smart ATM that accepts coin deposits.

Coin deposits can be initiated using your BNZ debit cards or deposit cards. You can’t use your BNZ credit card, even if it’s a dual card linked to your transaction account.
