    ANZ is monitoring merchant interactions with the app, and has provided a dedicated support line to deal with any problems. Though Dalton has said that so far the bank had received "zero support calls through the pilot".

    The bank also plans to use merchant and customer feedback following the trial to make any necessary alterations to the app before it is made available free in Apple's app store around the middle of this year.

    The app itself requires a log-in for merchants, assigned by ANZ. The application can process transactions from credit and debit cards in the same way as internet purchases, which means no signature is required, with the transaction details sent automatically to both the merchant and the customer via email. Refunds are also available via a dedicated refund button within the transaction details. For the duration of the trial, a limit of $1000 will be in place; however, Dalton said this amount could be revised after the trial's completion and negotiated by individual merchants.

    The app connects to ANZ's secure back-end servers, via Wi-Fi or 2G/3G internet. For security purposes, the app does not store customer details, has a self-time-out function, and cannot be loaded onto jailbroken iPhones. ANZ has also implemented the capability to block usernames in the event of loss or theft of merchants' iPhones.
