The future of banking for PNG customers

Share the News


The most advanced banking app has arrived in PNG, with Westpac releasing its new app to the Google Play and Apple stores.

The Westpac PNG app offers smartphone users a variety of self-serve banking transactions, meaning they can access their personal accounts to bank whenever and wherever it suits them with an easy to use digital app format.

“The app is intuitive and offers the highest levels of convenience and security,” said Westpac PNG Chief Executive, Brett Hooker. “We’ve based the design on Westpac Australia’s ‘Westpac Live’ app, which won a number of awards when it was released for its simplicity and usability”.

The Westpac PNG app can be used on any smartphone or tablet which has an Android operating system of 4.4 or more; or an iOS of 10.1 or more.

Features of the app that will benefit Westpac’s personal banking customers include:

  • unlimited balance enquiries and checking of transaction history via a detailed mini-statement that includes transaction descriptions;
  • easy and fast payment of bills, as well as transfer of funds between accounts, with the app keeping a history of payments so it is easy to pay the same person or biller again;
  • Ability to recharge your own or another person’s mobile phone, instantaneously without the use of vouchers

“Security is, of course, people’s main concern when moving to digital banking, so we’ve included additional features to help us protect our customers against fraud,” said Mr. Hooker. “This includes enhanced PIN security and two-factor authentication whereby code is sent your mobile to confirm certain transactions,” he said.

Westpac encourages customers to download the Westpac PNG app today and enjoy the convenience it offers, with more features to be released in the future.
