A mobile payment wallet experiment.
We kiwi’s are an inventive lot and we love finding smart ways to make life simpler.
Our domestic payment solution, EFTPOS, was launched in 1984 and was ahead of its time. But times have changed and during the last two years, more of your customers have turned to contactless or online transactions.
We are working on a new model of in-store payments that gives customers the safety and convenience of contactless transactions while keeping tabs on their money. We are calling this experimental mobile wallet: Gofa.
We aim to make it easy to use and – most importantly, we are aiming to price this service in a way that is fair, transparent and easy to understand.
Use your phone to make payments.
