We're building the future
Back in the late 80’s, Kiwis were introduced to an unprecedented wave of payments innovation with EFTPOS. And the secret to its success is simple. Open industry collaboration, powered by Paymark’s ubiquitous and secure payments network. Payments is once again on the cusp of significant change. There's a lot of talk about open banking, open platforms and open APIs to power the next wave of payments innovation in New Zealand.
It’s not just talk. Paymark has built something new and it’s inspired by the same kiwi ingenuity and collaborative spirit that has fueled Paymark’s EFTPOS network for all these years.

Our OPEN API’s are available to anyone, banks, payments industry partners, fintechs and Kiwi all businesses alike.

What does our payments future look like? You could be able to pay with just a smile.
