Tyro have released a new product, called “Tap & Save”, allowing merchants to save money by processing debit tap-and-go payments through the more economical eftpos network. Tap & Save is a first-to-market initiative from Tyro offering leastcost routing to merchants.
Tyro’s Tap & Save offering has the potential to generate substantial savings on acceptance costs for eligible scheme debit tap-and-go payments for businesses using Tyro terminals. Tyro merchants will save on average six per cent on their Merchant Services Fees (MSF) and the majority of Tyro merchants will save between 20-30 per cent on re-routed transactions.
Currently in Australia, almost all tap-and-go card payments revert to the international credit card schemes, instead of the eftpos network. While the outcome is the same for the cardholder, the credit card schemes typically charge the merchant more than eftpos.
The launch of Tap & Save represents Tyro’s first iteration of least-cost routing, with further enhancements to come in future months which are expected to deliver even more savings to a larger proportion of its customer base.
