Short Term EFTPOS Terminal Rental

Smartpay makes renting EFTPOS terminals for short periods of time easy.

The short term EFTPOS hire process

You can hire an EFTPOS terminal for a day, a weekend, a week, or a month – you pick the time-frame and the location. Never lose another opportunity because your customers aren’t carrying enough cash, or by limiting what they can spend.

Initial enquiry & application

After speaking with our trained EFTPOS experts, you will be invited to apply for the Short Term EFTPOS Rental Solution. After appraisal of your application, Smartpay will confirm the outcome of your application, and reserve your terminal(s) for the required dates if you were successful.

EFTPOS Terminal is dispatched

On the week your Mobile EFTPOS Terminal is dispatched, Smartpay will take a credit card payment from your nominated card to cover the terminal rental and courier fees. As soon as you receive the terminal, it is ready to begin taking transactions with all funds deposited into your nominated bank account at close of business each day (actual settlement times will be dependent on your nominated bank).

Receive a merchant statement

All accrued Merchant Service Fees will be debited from your nominated ‘fees’ account at the end of each month. At the same time you will receive a merchant statement from the bank processing these transactions, which details all transactions and accrued Merchant Service Fees over the rental period.

About Smartpay’s Short Term EFTPOS Machine Hire

Easier to access than the banks

Typically, short term EFTPOS machine hire is notoriously difficult, as for the most part banks in Australia do not allow a merchant to temporarily use or hire an EFTPOS terminal, no matter how loyal a customer. Occasionally they might offer a basic solution, but the cost and minimum rental periods can make this unviable.

Convenience when & where you need it

In response Smartpay has developed the Short Term EFTPOS Rental Solution, ideal for trade shows, school fetes, exhibitions, promotional events and anywhere a merchant needs to make temporary sales. With Smartpay Short Term EFTPOS Rental, merchants no longer have to wait until they are back in the office or back at the shop to process card payments, they can take the initiative and directly service a captive audience while boosting sales.
