Charging stations with on-board EFTPOS/tap and go payment systems compatible with credit/debit cards and NFC enabled phones are the most convenient and efficient method of paying for charging sessions. EFTPOS/Tap and go payment is the most widely used and ubiquitous payment system in Australia. Electric car drivers are thoroughly familiar with tap and go.
Charging session fees are transferred directly to the merchant account of the charging station provider by a payment processor such as ADVAM or NAYAX. No transaction fees are levied by the charging station network manager. The charging station network manager has no involvement in payment processing.
