Does my new Android terminal have all the same features as my current terminal?

Your new Android EFTPOS terminal is loaded with the same payment methods and additional functionality as your current terminal. For example, MOTO, Surcharging, and Contactless (Paywave). Some of these features work differently on Android EFTPOS however.

If your old terminal was a Verifone VX 520C, VX 680, or VX 690 you can use your leftover paper rolls in your new Android terminal. If your old terminal is a VX 820 DUET, your paper rolls won’t fit in your new Android terminal.
