Australia's 'Big Four' banks have decided to remove the cash withdrawal fee for using their ATMs. This means you will no longer be charged $2 for using a CBA, Westpac, ANZ or NAB ATM with your card, regardless of who you bank with.

Commonwealth Bank has removed fees for all bank customers that use its automated teller machines (ATMs). This means that members of ANZ, NAB, Westpac-St.George and other banks will no longer be slugged with a $2 cash-withdrawal fee for using CommBank ATMs. Hurrah!

CommBank Albert is an Android-based point-of-sale tablet that will compete directly with traditional eftpos terminals in Australia. The device's main claim to fame is the ability for merchants to install customised apps for numerous business purposes. Boasting a secure EMV interface for accepting chip and PIN cards, NFC support for contactless payments, Wi-Fi connectivity and an inbuilt receipt printer, it's essentially a "smart" payment terminal that can be adapted on the fly to meet the changing needs of customers.
