Digital payments on trial at eftpos
eftpos would bring the payment provider into the online and mobile spaces for the first time. Coles, Commonwealth Bank and Bendigo and Adelaide Bank are also involved in the trial, eftpos said today. The trial includes “up to 50 merchants” and a “limited number of consumers across Australia,” eftpos CEO Bruce Mansfield said in a statement. The trial has several phases and is expected to continue in early 2014, eftpos said. Once validated in trials, eftpos plans to deploy the technology for industry participants connecting to the new eftpos Hub that was announced in October.
