In a bid to reduce millions of dollars of credit card fraud, Visa, MasterCard and American Express are moving to card present credit card sales to be verified by personal identification number [PIN] on August 1st 2014. This signals the end of signatures for Australian credit cardholders.This is a significant reform that as a result forces hospitality operators to rethink how they will handle credit and debit payments. 

Merchant Payments EFTPOS partner, Tyro ,has developed a mobile pay@table solution that solves this issue facing the industry.With pay@table, cardholders conveniently and securely pay their bill by entering their PIN on a mobile terminal at the table.Importantly the solution allows for customers to enter their tip on the terminal or on the recipt at the end of the transaction. In a group situation split bill is also be accomodated. 

Pay@table gives customers to control the payment process quickly,securely and conveniently.In the hospitality industry where great service is essential for customer loyalty pay@table can provide merchants with a competitive edge.

We like using Tyro recommended by MPS, for a number of reasons; firstly we like the personalised service that we receive from the Tyro team and in addition we find that the customer portal is particularly customer friendly and our admin team find this very useful. One aspect that makes for quick reconciliation of deposits is the ease with which all our outlets are clearly named and not just referred to as a store number!
