ASB mPOS allows NZ businesses to accept payments on the spot

07 August 2014 / Published in Tech & Innovation

If you’re in business, like running a busy bar or cafe, selling high fashion or are a tradesperson on-the-go, we're introducing new technology to allow you to accept payments at any location with network coverage. ASB Accept mPOS pairs a small mobile terminal with our new ASB Payment Interface (Pi) application to turn your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad into a mobile point of sale device that securely accepts EFTPOS, debit and credit card payments - right on the spot.

“New Zealand businesses will now be able to accept payments more easily while out-and-about visiting customers,” says Russell Jones ASB’s Executive General Manager of Technology and Innovation. “This means, for example, that tradespeople visiting customers at home will be able to accept a payment securely as soon as soon as the work has been completed.”

ASB Accept mPOS will securely accept payments by both EFTPOS and credit cards, and will even email receipts to customers instantly. We knew that our business customers receive over 60% of their retail transactions using EFTPOS, and therefore our solution needed to support processing of these payments. Plus, these payments are processed on the same day, seven days per week to your ASB account helping your business cashflow.

ASB Accept mPOS also makes it more convenient for diners to split restaurant bills, and allows them to pay by different methods right from the table using the simple touch screen app. Your customers can also use this to split the way they pay – some cash, some on their card.

Nate Dunn, from Tuihana cafe in Mt Eden, trialled the new device at the recent Gather tech conference. From 8am to 4pm, the cafe’s baristas raced through about 400 coffees with 80 hot drinks served in the busiest hour. “The terminal worked really well, the transactions were really quick, and it’s a cool little bit of kit.” He says customers were impressed with the new technology and there was minimal staff training required. “All the feedback was good, it worked really well.”

If your business would benefit from using the new ASB Accept mPOS, give our team a call on 0800 272 555 to find out more.
