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.
With eftpos, you use your own money at the checkout, with real time balances and no pending purchases hanging over your head.
All eftpos transactions are securely processed in Australia using our own infrastructure.
eftpos invests our profits back into our domestic economy so we all benefit.
