Australian debit card transaction system Eftpos will begin mobile payment trials with selected Australian retailers in the next few months.

The new Eftpos mobile wallet and the NFC widget will be developed as white label products that could be used by a number of Australian retailers or financial institutions. In addition to m-payments, the new technology could also enable offers, loyalty programmes, and transfer of receipts.
