Computop and EVO certify terminals for international card acceptance

With the successful certification of POS terminals, global acquirer EVO Payments and global payment service provider Computop are taking their cooperation to a new level.

By making a joint offering they enable merchants to use unified POS terminals across Europe and connect them to their e-commerce business on a unified payment platform.

Uniform acquiring for 46 countries
Omnichannel and internationalisation are at the top of the agenda for many merchants. But especially in physical retail outlets their plans can be challenged by national regulations, for example in the selection of the acquirer. Thanks to the certification of the Next terminals from CCV, acquiring by EVO Payments is now available to Computop customers in 46 countries and overseas territories. With the terminals certified according to the PCI P2PE standard, payment data is highly encrypted "end-to-end" which improves security and relieves merchants from the need for their own PCI certification.

Customers of EVO Payments, whose payment processing already ran via Computop Paygate, can use these terminals to merge transactions from all channels - their physical trade as well as their online business. This way, they can be processed and analysed in combination with the data from the settlement files. This makes offers such as Click & Collect or Return-in-Store possible, not only on the ERP side but also on the payment side.

Stephan Kück, Managing Director of Computop, said: "We are pleased to be able to offer our customers a powerful acquirer for the Europe-wide rollout of our POS terminals with EVO Payments. This extension is particularly attractive for our Non-European customers.”

"The certification is an important step with which we not only deepen our existing successful cooperation with Computop, but also create valuable synergy which will benefit equally our customers and Computop's customers. Integrated technology solutions like this simplify the transaction processing of merchants across all sales channels and are an important step towards strengthening our international network," explains Anna Bejaoui, General Manager at EVO Payments International.
