Cashback or cashout from a card

Shoppers using an EFTPOS (Electronic Funds Transfer at Point Of Sale) card in Australia can obtain a small amount of cash from their account, either:

  • With their purchase (cashback).
  • Without a purchase (cash out).

EFTPOS is a card scheme in Australia and New Zealand.

To perform a cashback or cashout, pass the corresponding TransactionType listed below when you create a tender. For more information on how to create a tender, see Create the tender.

To perform cashbacks or cashouts, contact the POS Support Team to enable this feature.

Value Description
GOODS_SERVICES_WITH_CASHBACK
Pass this value as the TransactionType with the CreateTender method to allow a customer to obtain cash along with their purchase. For a cashback, the cashback amount is the difference between the price of the purchased goods and the total authorised amount. For example, if an item costs $70, and the customer asks for $30 cashback, the total authorised amount is $100. Populate the field cashbackAmount in Additional Data with the cash amount that will be provided to the shopper. The field amount equals the total authorised amount (cashbackAmount + value of the purchased goods and services).
CASHOUT Pass this value as the TransactionType with the CreateTender method to allow a customer to obtain cash without a purchase. For a cashout, the cashback amount equals the total authorised amount. The field amount equals the total authorised amount (which is also equal to the cash amount that is provided to the shopper). Populate the field cashbackAmount in Additional Data with the cash amount that will be provided to the shopper.
