Ingenico Group, the global leader in seamless payment, has today announced the successful UK launch of an exciting new mobile payment solution for merchants, in partnership with Paymentsense, Europe’s largest merchant service provider.
From today, UK merchants of all sizes can bring the point of sale direct to their customers with a slim, light, elegant and super-fast payment device, easily integrated into their existing POS systems.
Using Ingenico’s Link/2500 mobile payment device, connected via Paymentsense’s Connect software, retailers can quickly implement a fully mobile checkout experience without complex integration or major system changes. Consumers can pay with contactless, Apple Pay and Google Pay, as well as the full breadth of traditional cards.
For a retailer, that means less queuing, a more personal consumer experience and more selling space. For a restaurant, it means that pay-at-table is a slicker experience, with more waiting staff empowered to take a payment. That means less waiting, faster turnover of tables and happier diners.
The technology behind the solution combines Ingenico’s new Link2500 payment device with an API connecting directly to Paymentsense’s proven cloud-based Connect solution.
Paymentsense back this solution with a 24/7 support service - vital, especially for the hospitality industry.
Guillaume Pascal, Managing Director Europe, Banks & Acquirers Business Unit, said; “We are delighted to bring this solution to market in partnership with Paymentsense. As the first UK deployment of the Link/2500, the thinnest mobile payment device of its kind, we are confident that as part of Paymentsense’s Connect solution it will help SMEs to access the benefits of integrated payment.”
Baird Kleinsmith, Chief Integrated Payments Officer, Paymentsense, commented: “We're excited to have added the Link/2500 to the list of Ingenico devices supported by Connect. Demand for a compact-footprint mobile device is high among our ePOS partners and we are thrilled to be meeting that need through our partnership with Ingenico. We expect that the joint solution will contribute significantly towards making integrated payments more accessible to SMEs in the UK.”
