ASB has announced a new Visa Debit card dedicated to providing small business customers with more purchasing power.

The new ASB Visa Debit for Business card has all the functionality of a credit card and gives customers another option to make business purchases, in-store, online or overseas using their own money.

"It’s important to us here at ASB to keep expanding the services we provide to make sure we’re offering the innovative financial tools our customers expect from us. Some of our small business customers were telling us they would prefer to use a debit card rather than a credit card and that’s what led to us being the first bank in New Zealand to offer the first dedicated business debit card for small business customers.

"It means our small business owners don’t have to deal with the stress of relying on future income to make payments, instead they have the peace of mind knowing that they’re spending what they know they have available," says ASB executive general manager, Business Banking Tim Deane.

The distinctive design makes it easy for customers to be able to tell ASB debit business and personal cards apart. Plus, as Tim Deane explains, there is also the added benefit of giving customers who currently use manual payment options such as cheques, some time back in their workday.

"By using our new ASB Visa Debit for Business card small business customers don’t have to wait to balance accounts because they’re receiving real-time information," says Deane.

Other benefits of the Visa Debit for Business include:

Access to a range of business benefits and offers with Visa Business Service Offers

Every transaction you make is protected by Visa Zero Liability cover

More offers, competitions and concert pre-sales through Visa Entertainment

Works with Apple Pay, Google Pay, Fitbit Pay and Garmin Pay
