    The app, jointly developed between ANZ and Deloitte Digital, was "very inexpensive", according to the bank's general manager of innovation, Peter Dalton, who believes the app is a "differentiator" for ANZ, stating: "From what we've seen, we're the only major bank to provide a merchant app."

    Dalton declined to comment on whether the app would also be available on the soon-to-be-released Apple iPad; however, he did state that the company was constantly on the look out to make banking simpler.

    The trial began last month with three merchants — Fisher & Paykel, a mobile suit tailor and a mobile car detailer — with plans to expand the trial to 20 merchants.

    Fisher & Paykel's Brant Sargeson and Randolph Khoury demonstrated the app's functionality, stating that over 80 per cent of Fisher & Paykel's payments for home visits are made by credit or debit card.
