Pay with your Smartphone on all Worldline terminals

Pay with your Smartphone on all Worldline terminals

Frankfurt/Main, 12. January 2015 - Worldline [EUR Next: WLN], European leader in the payments and transactional services industry, extends the functionality of its payment terminals: The company integrates now the QR code for the cashless cross-channel payment Yapital. This enables customers to pay with their smartphone in a fast, easy and secure way on all Worldline terminals. Through this integration, the online and POS world are growing together even more.

Since the beginning of this year Worldline operates the Yapital gateway, the interface between acquirers and network service providers throughout Germany. Now Worldline is expanding its portfolio once again offering the first European cashless cross-channel payment Yapital as a standard on its own terminals. The technical processing of Yapital payments takes place via the existing card payment infrastructure of Worldline. In addition, Worldline and Yapital enable other terminal manufacturers with a common specification to implement the Yapital gateway.

Thanks to this partnership most of the German stationary retail sector will soon be able to offer an easy payment method via smartphone. To facilitate this Worldline has extended the authorization host for network service providers to Yapital. As a result, the existing electronic payment processing system of the merchant is directly able to recognize Yapital transactions. The advantage for merchants: You can integrate Yapital cost-effectively and in a few steps as cross-channel payment solution.

With Yapital consumers can pay in a quick, easy and safe way across all channels without media change – in-store, as well as online or purchase on account. In addition, Yapital allows money transfers in real time. Worldline and Yapital thus open up further promising markets.

Christophe Duquenne, Head of Global Business Line Merchant Services & Terminal: "Our innovative terminals support any payment standard - now also paying by smartphone. We combine the online and POS world to get a step closer to realize our vision of "making life more digital".
"Together with Worldline, we set new standards at the POS," says Niels Lohmüller, Executive Vice President of Business Development at Yapital. "The extensive cooperation between Worldline and Yapital enables merchants to modernize their cashier stations very easily. Thereby mobile payment is brought to the consumers there where they need it: in their daily lives."

From January, 14 to 15 Worldline will present its terminal solutions for the filling-station sector at the UNITI Cards- and Automation Forum taking place at the Grand Elysée Hotel in Hamburg. The company will organise a workshop entitled "From standard to a petroleum specific terminal - 18 months exciting "full speed ahead", a project review from three perspectives".
