Bank launches GoPos®Lite
Bendigo Bank has launched GoPos®Lite, a small mobile EFTPOS device for businesses who want to take payments on the go.
Provided in conjunction with Quest Payment Systems and Strategic Payments Services (SPS), GoPos®Lite uses new technology that makes accepting card payments more portable and easier for both the business operator and their customers.
Michael O’Shea, Head of Access and Payment Systems at Bendigo Bank, said the Bank is excited to offer GoPos®Lite, one of the first of its kind released in the Australian market.
“GoPos®Lite is a pocket-sized, lightweight payment card reader that connects to any network, giving business owners more freedom and connectivity than ever before,” he said.
“This will be a great tool for market stall holders, tradesmen or other mobile businesses, as they’ll be able to receive payments on the spot while offering their customers greater convenience.
“With more people choosing to pay with cards, GoPos®Lite is a cost-effective solution which enables businesses to improve their cash flow and serve customers who may not carry cash,” Mr O’Shea said.
Mr O’Shea said GoPos®Lite is easy for both business operators and their customers to use.
“Once approved, merchants simply download a free app onto their smartphone or tablet, then pair to the GoPos®Lite device via Bluetooth,” he said.
“The transaction is keyed into the smartphone or tablet and the customer then enters their card and PIN into the reader. A receipt can be sent to the customer via email or SMS to complete the transaction.
“A major benefit of GoPos®Lite is security. The customer is able to perform a secure card transaction, with a PIN, while merchant risk is reduced as payment authorisation is sought automatically,” Mr O’Shea said.
