eziPass update

Even though I am in Hong Kong I have been in close contact with the Tower office about the fall out of the increasing difficulties Bill Express finds itself in.  We have been swamped with calls today about eziPass, how to sign up, whether Optus and Vodafone will come on board.  I have prepared a fax tonight which will go out tomorrow sharing as much as we are able at the moment.  This fax includes the 1300 number newsagents can call to access the amazing St.George / Bank SA rates we have negotiated for newsagents.

Newsagents wanting to get live with eziPass need to go to the website and click on retailer signup.  Complete the form and follow instructions for returning that for processing.

There is no doubt that our growing network of 450 – 500 newsagents has got suppliers interested.  I am fielding calls from businesses keen to offer their products through eziPass – some are saying they did not deal with Bill Express because of the cost of loading new products.

By signing up for eziPass you are showing to suppliers that you want a recharge / electronic platform in newsagencies.  Remember, it’s free and there is no long contract.

    What is the progress on Ezipass getting the Optus/Vodaphone?

    At the moment I’m selling $30 cards for Optus but turning their customers away when it comes to the higher priced cards.

    I know they both have been burned with BE but they should still carry on with business and expand into Ezipass stores.
