Australia's debit card system, eftpos, will be available on Google Pay for St George Bank, Bank of Melbourne and BankSA customers from today.

A statement from the company said customers of these three banks would now be able to use eftpos CHQ and SAV from their Android mobile phones.

eftpos chief executive Stephen Benton, said eftpos on Google Pay also provided cardholders with secure access to their money.

“Following today’s announcement, more than 300,000 St George, Bank of Melbourne and BankSA eftpos cardholders will be able to access their own money via their Android mobile phones and take advantage of eftpos benefits such as getting cash out at participating merchants,” he said.

“This means you only need to take your mobile when you go shopping. There’s no need to carry an extra card to access cash if you need it.”

For added security, eftpos on Google Pay uses the eftpos Token Service Provider which removes confidential consumer card data and use a unique payment token instead.

Google’s director for Product Management, Prakash Hariramani, said: "Starting today, St George, Bank of Melbourne and BankSA eftpos cardholders can add their eftpos cards to Google Pay once and then use Google Pay to make purchases at thousands of places in Australia."
