Where is Apple Pay, It has been available for Australian small banks for a few years now, and I can guarenty if Bankwest hadn't been bought out by Commbank it would have had Apple Pay by now. I'm not the only person considering leaving Bankwest because of its complete disregard of this product. iPhones are a significant owned by a significant proportion of Australians why do we STILL not have Apple Pay!

Hey @KinshM, Apple Pay isn't yet available for Bankwest customers as we've been unable to come to an agreement with Apple. I can appreciate this is disappointing news and am sorry I don't have a different answer for you.

We're aware that some of our customers are quite keen to be able to utilise this feature on their Apple devices and hope to have an update in the future.

Hey @Perthmack, I'm very sorry to say that you have incorrect information there. I've just checked and Apple Pay is still a service CBA doesn't offer. 

While we are part of the Commonwealth Group, we operate as individual banks which means we don't have access to their systems/accounts and vice versa. 

As soon as we have any news to share regarding Apple Pay, we'll let you know.
