Octopus Payment Machines

The Octopus Payment Machines (OPM) allow users to use Octopus (八達通) to buy print quota for network printing. The process is a two-step procedure: User first buy a ticket from an Octopus Payment Machine using Octopus card, and then take the ticket to a Cyberstation to complete the process. The reason for two-step is because of the technical complexity to put two systems into one box and the OPM makes use of a standard Octopus Payment Machine which is more cost effective.
