Visa. Everywhere you want to be.

Our world is changing. The rapid development of new payment technologies now enables you to pay with your mobile phone and wearable devices. But the more things change, one thing will remain the same; Visa will still offer you the same high level of security on all new methods of payment as we do on your Visa card.

Check out how new payment technologies are helping Kiwi businesses provide better and more efficient experiences for their customers.

Visa is now a smile...
In any given day, Moustache Milk and Cookie Bar entrepreneur, Deanna Yang, can serve over 500 cookies to happy customers.

Delivering delicious treats with a smile and exceptional customer service is what has made Moustache Milk and Cookie Bar such a success. It’s become so popular it can be hard to keep up with demand. Anything that can assist Deanna and her team to speed up the time customers spend at the till means more volume and more revenue.

Thanks to Visa payWave, Deanna can focus on serving milk, cookies and smiles for the brief moment her customers are at the counter, rather than fumbling to insert cards and wait for PIN numbers.

“Having Visa payWave is the ultimate timesaver in customer service,” says Deanna. “Just like having a range of milkshakes and cookies, providing my customers with choice around how they pay is really important.”

Visa is now in motion

As you may have seen from our latest campaign we’re all about supporting young Kiwis doing extraordinary things, and Auckland raised singer and songwriter Georgia Campbell is no exception.

At just 19, Campbell has written a collection of songs, worked with writers and producers in the UK and Australia, including Ratcliffe of Basement Jaxx fame (who co-wrote ‘Lightning’), opened the Volume exhibition at Auckland’s War Memorial Museum and is headed for LA to continue her search for the Holy Grail “hit”.

Campbell and her new track ‘Lightning’ feature in our latest Visa is now campaign which you can see here. To hear the full song, search “Campbell Lightning” on your favourite music app.

Visa is now your secret sauce

Tiger Burger was established back in 2015 by Esther and Matt, whose shared love of food and willingness to roll up their sleeves has seen their business become a local success story.

Starting small with pop-ups at local markets, soon the word got out about this distinct and delicious collision of Korean cuisine and Western street food.

Tiger Burger’s unique menu quickly gained momentum so when they got their very own restaurant in 2016, the doors opened to a full house and it’s been packed out ever since.

Matt and Esther are another shining example of Kiwi entrepreneurs doing great things and they have big plans for the future. So for the team at Tiger Burger, anything they can do to make the dining experience more enjoyable and hassle free is just fine by them.

“We’ve always tried to deliver great and unique customer experiences and Visa payWave helps to provide our patrons with choice of how they’d like to pay,” says Matt.

Payment technology for every lifestyle

Who takes a wallet running? But a wearable device lets you buy a coffee or a cool drink at the end of your run. payWave on your mobile lets you pay for lunch even if you’ve forgotten your wallet. And Visa Checkout means you don’t have to fill in all your card details every time you buy something online.

Safe and Secure
Whether we’re working together with phone manufacturers or technology companies, or developing new products ourselves like Visa Checkout, you can be assured that payments will be convenient, reliable and most importantly secure.
