ANZ accused over Apple Pay support

Australian bank ANZ is being accused of “pulling a fast one” after walking away from a collaborative effort with its big four rivals to seek stronger negotiating powers over third party mobile wallets and announcing its support for Apple Pay. “One of the applicants was ANZ Bank,” says Lance Blockley, a spokesman for the applicant banks, as reported by news.com.au. “They chose to pull a fast one on their competitors and their joint applicants earlier this year when they withdrew from the group of applicants and decided to negotiate separately with Apple.”
