BSP and Westpac connect ATMs for ease of banking

Monday, January 31, 2011

This means BSP ATMs nationwide can now accept the Westpac Handycards and likewise Westpac ATMs can now accept BSP Kundu Cards for withdrawals and balance enquiry transactions.

BSP Deputy GM Retail Lew Kenah said this will provide greater convenience for Papua New Guinean bank customers.

For BSP, this successful interchange follows the recent acceptance of MasterCard on BSP ATMs, which are all testimony to the commitment BSP has in making banking easier, convenient and safer.

"More than ever, we know that consumers are increasingly looking for ways to get more from the financial services industry and it is our commitment to provide services that are flexible and convenient," Mr Pondros said.

Ashleigh Matheson, General Manager, Westpac PNG, said the arrangement with BSP furthers Westpac's goals of expanding its network and making it easier for customers to do their banking.

'We're delighted to join forces with BSP in this arrangement which benefits customers of both banks and believe this increases the sophistication of PNG's banking system.' Mr Matheson said.

BSP has 173 ATMs nationwide and will continue to roll out more this year. Westpac has 17 ATM's across the country. A further 18 ATM's will be installed at various locations over the next three months taking the total to 35.
