EuroConex and Euro Refund's Sales & Marketing partnership today announced the launch of TPS, which combines two great value-added services, automatic tax-free form printing and Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) at the point-of-sale.

TPS will initially be available in Ireland and the UK before roll out to the broader European network. It is available on a single point-of-sale terminal in addition to card payment processing services currently provided by euroConex. The terminal will also provide tax-free form printing for non-credit card payments.

"This is a truly first class service for retailers, providing them with two additional income streams from one card payment processing devise," said Tom Boyer, Head of Business Development, euroConex. "TPS enables retailers to provide a convenient 3-in-1 service to their foreign customers. Tourist and travellers have in one single step the convenience of paying by credit card, instant conversion of the transaction amount to their own currency and automatic printing of their tax-free form - reducing the time spent at the point-of-sale," said Boyer.

"Tourist Payment Services gives Euro Refund a real competitive advantage and secures us as the number one tax free technology provider across the UK, Ireland and Europe," said Jónas Hagan, Managing Director, Euro Refund. "Our strategy remains geared towards offering better and faster access to the latest solutions ahead of the competition."
