We, on behalf of Probasee Bengalee Association of NZ, have hired EFTPOS machine from Smartpay a couple of times in the last few year for a couple of our events. Xev has been instrumental with... required support both these times. He had communicated with us throughout the process, and although we had applied for it quite late and were on a tight deadline, Xev made sure we get the terminal on time both the occasions. His communication, and proactive support and follow-up has been really impressive. We are very happy with the service. 100% recommend them if anyone is looking to hire EFTPOS terminals. And, a very special shout out to Xev for his more
