BSP EFTPoS Terminals Accepts NFC Payments

  • Bank South Pacific is pleased to announce 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 smart phone 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 today, by BSP’s Retail General Manager, Mr Paul Thornton who made a purchase via a BSP EFTPoS device through the use of his smart watch.
