Dosh to Accelerate Payments Innovation in NZ with Visa

7 min read

Kiwi digital wallet provider Dosh has been announced the sole recipient of the Canstar Innovation Excellence Award 2022.

The team at DOSH New Zealand is delighted to finally share we are working with Visa to launch a Dosh Card, enabling Dosh users to spend funds from their Dosh mobile wallet anywhere that accepts Visa. Co-founder Shane Marsh says the collaboration with Visa will drive significant innovation in New Zealand’s payments landscape and is an important next step for Dosh.

“There’s no need to wait for your money to arrive or be cleared by the banks over the weekend; you can just use your smartphone and your Dosh app. With Visa, we will significantly expand the Dosh network of businesses. This is a real game changer.”

Co-founder James McEniery.

What does this mean for Dosh?

It means that the Dosh mobile wallet will seamlessly integrate into one of the world’s largest payment networks, massively expanding Kiwis’ ability to buy goods and services using Dosh. You will be able to pay anyone back via Dosh at any time, and they can instantly use Dosh at any business that accepts Visa. Those payments can then be split between friends on the spot via the app, avoiding the delays of standard bank transfers.

The Dosh Visa card will be available for Kiwi consumers to start using in the second half of 2022. Dosh will first launch a physical card enabling purchases directly from the Dosh mobile wallet, with a digital card to be released soon after.
