EFTPoS terminals accept payments via devices

Bank South Pacific has announced that its EFTPoS devices are equipped to accept payments via Near Field Communication (NFC) Mobile Payment service.

NFC technology gives customers the option to carry out contactless payments through the use of wearables, such as a watch, or payments via the wave of your smartphone over point of sale terminal (EFTPoS).

There is a wireless data transfer between the device and point of sale terminal (EFTPoS), providing an elevated customer payment solution. 

The enhancement to BSP’s EFTPoS payment capabilities was demonstrated recently by BSP’s Retail General Manager, Paul Thornton, who made a purchase via a BSP EFTPoS device through the use of his smart watch.

“This technology is used worldwide, and with BSP’s EFTPoS enhanced capability, the payment method can now be used on BSP’s devices ensuring ease of payments and swift  response,” said Thornton.

“BSP is focused on delivering improved customer experience by anticipating market needs and aligning our infrastructure and systems accordingly. The bank is confident that the contactless technology will help pave way for more usage of the EFTPoS terminals in PNG.”
