Major Eftpos Fault Very Frustrating For Retailers

4 June 2009 - Auckland's leading shopping district says a Telecom fault which disrupted landlines, Eftpos and some mobile phones across Auckland today is the last thing retailers need and that they deserve an explanation and assurances. "Here we are in the sixth quarter of a recession and on one of the coldest days of years and retailers were forced to pull out their zip zap machines," says Cameron Brewer, general manager of the Newmarket Business Association. "It's not good enough when you consider the fees businesses pay Internet providers. It's hard enough in retail land as it is without missing out on sales. Eftpos is the modern day lifeblood of retail. Retailers will be looking forward to a full explanation and assurances that it won't be happening again," says Mr Brewer.
