In New Zealand creditcards (VISA, MasterCard and American Express) are the mostly used online payment methods, followed by PayPal.

Besides these global brands, Kiwi's also frequently use POLi and AfterPay when purchasing online.

POLi is a online bank transfer system whereby the shopper pays for the goods and services through their trusted online banking environment. AfterPay allows the shopper to pay after receipt of the goods, interest-free. Merchants benefit from guaranteed payment and higher conversion rates as shoppers feel more confident when they don't have to pay in advance.

Last but not least, Apple Pay and Google Pay seem to rapidly gain more traction.
