Hi There,


From my previous post, im looking at what services really benifit the cusotmer,
I have found out today that we will be able to offer IP-Eftpos machines on our network "uses IP Ethernet instead of Dailup"
is this a service that would say make a business compleatly move from a PSTN based Network to a full IP network?
your views on this would be helpfull.


Kind Regards,


Matthew Greaves

I don't see why not.  We've done a lot of testing with eftpos machines over VoIP and it has worked flawlessly.

Unless you have modems that need to dial out to connect with legacy systems, I don't see why a business can't move to VoIP completely.

It would be great if those IP based eftpos machines did not charge you a local call everytime a transaction goes through, like the current eftpos systems do which dial an 08 something number....




Do whatever you want to do man.

All the receiving company needs to do is have a VFX/DVX number and every eftpos call would be free.

I think the OP is looking for info on IP based EFTPOS - not just running a regular EFTPOS terminal over a VoIP line.

You really need to contact an EFTPOS provider for information as this can be a simple or very complex issue depending on exactly what you want to do. It's possible to hook most EFTPOS units up over a regular broadband connection with the addition of a NAC but as many companies are moving towards IP based solutions they are taking this a step further and using integrated software (such as EFTPOS NZ's PC EFTPOS solution) to incorporate this directly into the POS system. This obviously requires a lot more work but has plenty of advantages.

There really is no need to be using EFTPOS over a VoIP line as it's unnecessary.
