Online purchases? Not just yet
Eftpos is still lagging behind when it comes to shopping online. It seems quite odd to think that a major payment system could be missing this feature in 2020.
The eftpos website claims that online purchases are in the picture moving forward. But this has been the case for some time now. So it becomes a bit hard to tell how committed they actually are to allowing online purchases for cardholders.
With the recent addition of eftpos Mobile and Tap & Pay, eftpos may realise that they are losing a lot of ground to competing systems. And genuinely wanting to stay in the game means that online shopping must be a priority for the company.
With no recent announcements and no updates to their website, we might still be waiting a while for any real changes. And until this happens, Visa and Mastercard will be the choice for Australians who shop online.
