Frequently asked questions

EFTPOS stands for Electronic Funds Transfer at the Point of Sale. It is the term used to describe an electronic payment system (or machine or terminal) that enables the taking of payments by debit, credit and charge cards. EFTPOS machines – which can be standalone or connected to a Point of Sale (POS) system – facilitate the movement of funds from a customer’s card account to a nominated business’ bank account.

Then there is eftpos (not in capitals), which is the debit card payment system that takes funds directly from a customer’s cheque or savings transaction account to pay for purchases in store.

Every business is different, so will benefit from different payment solutions including combinations of services – such as EFTPOS in store and a virtual terminal for phone and mail payments out back.

Some machines integrate with Point of Sale (POS) software and some are standalone, meaning you manually key-in the amount to be paid.

Then there are eCommerce payment gateways and systems for handling batch and/or regular payments. Request a call back from a member of the Westpac merchant services team if you’d like to discuss options that may suit your business.

It’s worth carrying out research to help you identify the right payment system for your business needs. A great place to start could be our handy Payment Solution Selector Tool, which is designed to help you find payment products that may match your specific requirements.

All Westpac EFTPOS terminals can connect to the internet via a mobile network (3G/4G) or via Wi-Fi (excluding EFTPOS Connect) and ethernet.
