ANZ has announced that from 1 December 2018, it would remove EFTPOS, Internet Banking and Bill payment fees for retail customers in Fiji, to promote a cashless economy and provide better, more affordable access to digital services.
“All ANZ Fiji customers with transaction and savings accounts will benefit from unlimited free EFTPOS transactions and for those who use digital payments, they will also be able to make Internet Banking, ANZ Pacific App or Bill Pay transactions for no charge,” said ANZ Fiji Country Head, Saud Minam.
“We support the proposals in the 2018 Fiji Budget to drive a cashless and paperless economy and we are pleased to take an industry leadership position by bringing in these changes before 1 January.
“As a market leader, ANZ Fiji will continue to drive our digital transformation agenda for the benefit of our customers.”
Meanwhile, ANZ also announced it was offering market leading term deposit rates for 12-18 month terms, as a step towards helping to build a strong savings culture across the Pacific.
ANZ Fiji Country Head, Saud Minam, said: “As the largest bank in Fiji, we recognise that we need to take a lead role in helping Fijians get ahead in life and become more financially confident.
“There’s healthy competition for deposits here in Fiji and we want to ensure we can give our Retail customers reliable growth over the long term,” he said.
