EFT support blog tile 2Our upcoming Android™ software release introduces new features to make taking payment and managing reporting and reconciliation easier.

Developing on the Android™ platform enables the Verifone engineering team to create, scale and deliver software and apps more efficiently than was previously possible with legacy platforms. For the 10,000+ businesses in New Zealand already using Verifone Android™ payment terminals, this means faster delivery of improvements and new features.

The next Android™ EFTPOS software release builds on core payment functionality while delivering enhancements to make using the devices even more intuitive.

 

The Highlights

 

Split Payments

Split Payments makes splitting the bill a breeze for you and your customers. Split a Purchase between multiple customers, into equal parts or custom amounts. The payments are grouped together in your Transaction History for easy reporting.


Multi Merchant

Split the cost of a single EFTPOS terminal with other merchants, but get paid into separate bank accounts. Multi merchant is the perfect solution for merchants working out of a shared space for example doctors offices, hair stylists and sole traders. Our initial Multi Merchant solution for Android™ requires all loaded merchant accounts to be with the same bank, but future phases will support multiple merchants banking with different banks.


Shift Totals app

Check on how sales are going for the day and make reconciliation a breeze with the Shift Totals app. See a tally and the total value of all purchases and refunds you've processed during the current shift, as well as purchases with cash out, tips and surcharges added. Keep track of your teams' tips with the optional 'link tips' feature.
