A better way to pay, by Google
Google Pay is the fast, simple way to pay in millions of places. It brings together everything you need at checkout and keeps your information safe and secure.
eftpos on Google Pay provides eftpos cardholders with secure access to their own money in real time, with less likelihood of being surcharged.
Getting started with Google Pay
Adding your card to Google Pay takes just a few minutes. First, download the app from Google Play or check to see if it’s already installed on your phone. Then, open the app and follow the instructions. Google Pay works on Android devices running Lollipop 5.0+ or higher.

Which banks and credit unions offer eftpos on Google Pay?

Pay with your phone in stores
Google Pay works anywhere you see one of these symbols at checkout. Just wake the display on your phone and hold it near the terminal. You don’t even need to open the app.
The service uses Australia’s first domestic Token Service Provider (TSP) for added payments security, making eftpos one of the first domestic schemes in the world with this secure tokenisation capability.
This service makes payments safer by replacing the card number with a unique digital identifier known as a payment token. It means that when you use your phone to pay in stores, Google Pay doesn’t send your debit card number with your payment – so your card details stay safe.
Another benefit of the technology is that users will be able to disable mobile payments if their phone is lost or stolen, without needing to cancel the physical card itself. For additional peace of mind, if your phone is ever lost or stolen, you can lock and erase it from anywhere with Find My Device.
