Coles Rolls Out Some Digital Wallet Support

Coles Financial Services, Rolled out some but not all digital wallet support to their credit card products today. The products referred to in the industry as a co-branded card are issued by Citigroup.

The digital wallet platforms that have been turned on today for all Coles credit card products, not on their prepaid gift card product, Were Apple Pay and Samsung Pay.

Unfortunately there is no Google Pay support this is most likely not a Coles Financial Services problem and more of a Citigroup problem who issues the cards on their behalf.

Citibank, in Australia has not rolled out Google Pay on even their products which means on a co-branded product you’re highly unlikely to be able to see the functionality as well.

Hopefully sometime in the near future the decision not to support Google Pay by Citibank will be resolved and Google Pay can then make it down the chain to co-branded card products issued by Citigroup.

Beem It: Switches on the ability to transfer money between cards

Beem It, Today turned on the ability to transfer money between your own cards in their latest update.

If you don’t have more than one card in the app you will need to go through the card set up and verification process which will make small debits and refund the money to the card you’re trying to set up.

But once that process has been completed you’ll be able to now transfer successfully between your cards.

The functionality, which is going to be seen as a well received addition to the app based on use cases observed online, this is one of the most heavily used functions using currently a two account workaround.

The app uses Visa or Mastercard payment rails when sending money and the recipient receives the money in their account by a eftpos refund via the eftpos payment rails.

Beem It is a money transfer app lead by Commonwealth Bank that’s a joint-venture between them, NAB and Westpac.
