Shaping payments together

Payments NZ sets the rules that keep our payment system open, safe and efficient. We embrace relationships and technology to make sure our system is working at its best now and well into the future.

Integrity, efficiency, security

Our business is payment system safety, a level playing field and system efficiency. We work with our members to understand the landscape, set the rules and standards for New Zealand and make it fair for all.

Our vision

In a complex and fast moving environment our goal is to get ahead of the curve and make sure our payment system is ready for the changes when they arrive. By including the groups and individuals that drive our industry on this journey we will ultimately make participation easier and reduce costs for all.
