If you are called by a bank or another party to take on their EFTPOS service, take your time to research and compare the offer.
Ensure the fees are competitive, that there are no hidden extras and that any contract they want you to sign is for a period of time you are prepared to accept.
One contract I have just seen required the newsagent to sign up for three years, agree to an onerous contract break fee and accept any fee rise the bank may impose in that time.
A low EFTPOS fee deal you are offered today could be gone quickly, leaving the newsagent locked into an uncompetitive deal.
Those promoting an EFTPOS deal to newsagents ought to ensure that their deal stacks up as being good for newsagents. If any industry association promotes, endorses or otherwise guides newsagents to a specific deal they are effectively placing their stamp of approval on the deal. They need to disclose the due diligence undertaken and any commercial benefit for them they may receive.
