NZ digital wallet Semble adds transit payments

07 July 2015  |  4299 views  |  1 Crowd Walking

New Zealand digital wallet Semble has added a public transport option to its portfolio through a partnership with contactless transit card Snapper.

Available initially as a beta release on enabled Android devices, an estimated 50,000 central+ Wellington Snapper users will be able to use their mobile phones for transport with Semble, the mobile payment service developed by telcos 2degrees, Spark, Vodafone, eftpos vendor Paymark and banking partners ASB and BNZ.

Semble CEO Rob Ellis says the addition of Snapper to the Semble app is a significant milestone for the business and marks a period of growth for the New Zealand mobile wallet.

“At launch we promised a single app offering multiple services to customers. A one-stop shop including payments, transport, ticketing, offers, loyalty cards, all on your phone accessed via a single app. The launch of Snapper in Semble brings us one step closer to that goal," he says.

Ellis says Semble is having ongoing discussions with other transit operators across New Zealand to extend the public transport option nationwide.

Exiting! Is this with Mifare/DESfire? In that case, will they only support eSE or is this SIM based?
