Nayax Launches the Onyx Contactless Card Reader in Australia

Award-winning contactless payment solution opens market up for unattended machines

Onyx, Nayax’s latest addition to the unattended cashless payment market, is now available in Australia. Onyx is a compact contactless card reader, with a striking design, providing operators of unattended machines a complete payment solution, integrating digital payment capabilities into the mix.

Onyx features easy navigation with a color touchscreen, voice interaction, LED lights and is optimized for payment variety. Going beyond card reading, Onyx presents consumers a wide variety of cashless payment methods including credit/debit cards, NFC payments, mobile wallets such as Apple Pay and G Pay, QR codes and prepaid cards for closed environments. Onyx was certified for Visa and MasterCard by First Data.

The Onyx reader is ideal for Australia, a country which sees a high demand for contactless payment. According to Westpac, contactless payment is the preferred payment method in 90% of purchases among Australian consumers. Onyx allows operators to add contactless payment to a variety of unattended machines, and fits seamlessly on vending machines, payment kiosks, and office coffee machines and is especially well-suited for pulse machines such as kiddie & amusement rides, laundry machines and car washes.

Additionally, Onyx packs many added business functions into its small size, giving operators access to telemetry, machine management, BI analysis, machine monitoring, cashless clearance and marketing tools. These capabilities enable operators to have full control of their unattended machines and use operational data for strategic decision making. This winning formula contributed to Onyx being awarded EVEX’s Best Payment System of the Year.

“By introducing Nayax’s cashless solutions to our business, we have tackled the issue of declining cash in our economy head on,” says Dale Smorgon, CEO, Ride On! Entertainment. “We have benefited from a significant reduction in our operational costs, as well as delivering a seamless cashless user experience for our customers. The new Onyx device is a winner – it delivers a clever design and a simple solution.”

 

Nayax Australia’s Managing Director, Dylan Winik says: “Onyx gives operators the opportunity to offer contactless and mobile payments on machines that have typically been cash-based or required prepaid membership cards. For Australian consumers who are used to tapping their cards everywhere they go, Onyx now makes unattended machines that much more accessible. We’re excited to announce that we will be launching the Onyx device with an aggressive promotion to assist our operators and resellers to take advantage of incorporating Onyx into their businesses.”
