The New eftpos - Making CHQ and SAV payments easier for your customers

12 December 2016

eftpos has provided merchants with a safe, secure and reliable way to accept everyday payments since the mid-1980s and is now upgrading its technology to make it easier for your customers to make secure CHQ and SAV transactions on new platforms such as eftpos Chip cards, Online and Mobile.

In 2014/15 Australians made more than 2.3 billion eftpos transactions, worth more than $140 billion. This is equivalent to an average of more than 6 million eftpos CHQ and SAV transactions a day at around 900,000 terminals.

However, in a world of mobile phones and internet browsing, Australians are changing the way they shop and pay, and eftpos is evolving its technology to meet your needs.

To mark these changes eftpos is also reinvigorating its brand, with a new tagline, “Helping with everyday”.  You may have seen some of the new advertising on buses, bus shelters and in supermarkets, promoting key benefits such as cash out, real time and security.

eftpos is also continuing to actively promote retailers as a major supporter of both the Australian Retail Association and MGA Independent Retailers. It has been a major event sponsor, of the eftpos ARA Australian Retail Awards for three years.

“eftpos CHQ and SAV has supported everyday payments at Australian retailers for the past three decades and we are proud to sponsor these prestigious awards to honour the hard working men and women who serve their customers every day." Managing Director, Mr Bruce Mansfield, said.

Suncorp Bank actively supports the eftpos transformation and is now connected to the new, centralised eftpos payments hub and recently started issuing new chipped versions of the Suncorp Bank eftpos card.
