Australia Post is acquiring new advanced Point of Sale (POS) systems across 3,600 post offices, which will allow customers to pay using their wearable and mobile devices and provide better accessibility for those with vision and hearing impairments.
“We considered all of our customers’ needs when designing the new POS,” David McNamara, the general manager of Australia Posts’s post office network, said.
ANZ was also the first one to launch Apple pay years ago.
“We have continuously embraced and adopted new technology throughout our 209-year history, making sure we are inclusive of all of our customers from those who are new to technology and those who want faster payment systems.
“The system includes the latest in payment hardware and software technology, improved usability for those with special needs, and reliability. It is designed for a host of future capabilities, including the ability to digitally sign on screen when collecting parcels and registered letters.”
David McNamara also stated that customers had already taken advantage of the new payment method.
