Contactless surcharging

Ever have an incredible sales month, only to have your monthly Merchant Service Fees skyrocket? These are fees, usually charged by your bank, for accepting credit cards and contactless 'paywave' transactions. To help offset these fees, you can pass the cost onto the customer which means you don't have to raise your prices to absorb the overhead of accepting a wider range of payment options.



  • With surcharging enabled your terminal automatically detects when a transaction will incur merchant fees and applies a surcharge
  • Android EFTPOS terminals can even apply a surcharge to contactless 'paywave' transactions
  • Coming soon: We're removing the 'Confirm surcharge' prompt for contactless transactions to improve the transaction flow

Multi Merchant now available on Android™ EFTPOS👫

Multi Merchant allows two or more independent merchants to share the same EFTPOS terminal. Multi Merchant on Android only works for merchants who have settlement bank accounts with the same bank for now but we're working on allowing for a multi-acquirer setup in an upcoming release.

  • Perfect for doctors' offices, hair stylists, and sole traders sharing the same office space

Email settlement reports✉️

We've added an email button to all settlement reports so you can email reports directly from your terminal instead of using up receipt paper by printing them. Your report will be emailed as a PDF attachment.
