How do I shop in-store at Bridgestone?
Download the Zip app or sign up at zip.co/nz. You need to be 18+, have a NZ debit or credit card and have a
NZ Driver Licence. See FAQs below for more info and what to do if you don’t have a NZ Driver Licence.
If approved to shop you will see your available balance. This can be between $50 and $1,000 subject to an
individualised credit assessment. Your spend limit will increase if you make all your payments on time.
Navigate to “in-store” and create an in-store QR code. You must be able to make the entire purchase with your available
balance and cannot top up with another payment type like cash or eftpos. You must have at least 25% on your nominated card.
Present your in-store QR code to any member of the team at the counter. You will need to approve the purchase
on your mobile once the code is scanned. The first 25% payment is charged immediately.
