Creditcall, the EMV-ready payment gateway provider and EMV Migration specialist, has been chosen by Dutch contactless payment terminal provider Payter to power its new P6 series of contactless unattended payment terminals, designed to take advantage of the accelerating increase in contactless payments in Europe.
The contactless payments market is growing fast with the number of contactless card transactions in Europe up 174 percent year over year in the last quarter of 2014. By 2019 Swedish analyst house Berg Insight believes that more than 70 percent of the world’s payment terminals will be contactless enabled – compared to 28 percent in 2014. The opportunities for contactless payments are particularly vast in the unattended market, where having the exact amount of cash ready can be a nuisance.
Payter’s P6 series of contactless payment terminals use Creditcall’s EMV Level 2 Kernel, Contactless.LIB, which controls communication between the terminal and a credit or debit card. The transaction is processed via Creditcall’sPayment Gateway to Elavon, one of Europe’s largest acquiring banks. The P6 contactless payment terminal family is aimed at unattended markets such as vending and parking and can be easily integrated without modification to existing machines.
“Creditcall’s unique combination of 14 years of EMV Kernel development experience, and renowned unattended payment processing expertise, made them our payment solution provider of choice. Their EMV Level 2 Kernel has enabled us to reduce development times and speed up our product roll-out. We decided to focus on what we do best and bring in an expert, saving us a lot of time and effort,” said Remco Willemse, Managing Director of Payter.” “The implementation and the certification processes were flawless, with Creditcall providing excellent advice and support throughout our entire development cycle, delivering everything they had promised.”
“Over one million EMV Kernels deployed worldwide and an unbroken 100 percent first time pass EMV certification track record, gives our customers the certainty and assurance to meet deadlines and safely navigate through the often complex and time consuming EMV certification process,” said Jeremy Gumbley, CTO of Creditcall. “We have invested heavily in our payment gateway infrastructure over the last few years and it now stands out as the new industry standard in terms of reliability, resilience and security. We are very proud to have been chosen by Payter as their preferred payment solution provider.”
Since October 2014, almost 1,000 of Payter’s payment terminals have been deployed to a wide range of high profile FMCG customers within the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the UK.
