What's the new upgrade all about?
To help you give your customers the best experience, we’re introducing American Express contactless payments to NAB terminals. Right now, your NAB EFTPOS terminal only accepts contactless payments for Visa, MasterCard, eftpos and UnionPay. With the new Version 29 software, you’ll also be able to accept contactless payments from American Express cards.
Over 1000 NAB Verifone terminals already have the new software to enable this installed, and we’ll be working on getting the rest up and running by early 2017.
So, if you already accept American Express cards, you’ll be able to accept contactless payments through your NAB terminal very soon. If you don’t already accept American Express cards but would like to, please call our Merchant Service Centre on 1300 369 852.
The software upgrade (Verifone Version 29) will be loaded up in a similar way to a CPAT update – which means you don’t need to do a thing. Just wait for the upgrade to be completed, and start accepting contactless payments from American Express cards.
