ASB customers can make payments directly to Trade Me sellers in the latest enhancement to the mobile banking app.
“Functionality to pay for Trade Me won items is now integrated seamlessly into the ASB Mobile app," says Anna Curzon, GM, Brand Experience and Digital Channels.
"Trade Me has transformed the way Kiwis buy and sell online and the ability to pay Trade Me sellers directly without exchanging bank account numbers is a further way we have evolved our ASB Mobile app to make life easier for ASB customers."
ASB says users are able to access and log in to Trade Me through the app, select an item to pay for, select what account they would like to use and receive an instant confirmation that payment has been sent.
Trade Me sellers then receive a notification email advising them how to collect their payment.
In response to customer feedback, users of the app can also now select up to three account balances to be available via the Quick Balance feature of the application.
The ASB Mobile app is currently operating on Apple, Android and Windows smartphones and has been registered on over 140,000 devices.
