The story so far…

Back in 1984, Australians were introduced to a game-changing new payment system – eftpos – and made speedy, secure card payments possible at the cash register for the very first time.

Since then, we’ve kept bringing you more and more great stuff – like a centralised network and contactless chip in 2014, and mobile payments in 2017. In 2020, we also pioneered next-gen digital identity solutions with connectID, helping to keep Australians safe in the digital economy.

As the world keeps changing, you can count on eftpos to keep evolving with it – and doing all the good we can for Australia along the way.
