Fujitsu, Ingenico to enable contactless payments at UK train stations

Tuesday 15 April 2014 00:51 CET | News

Fujitsu, an information and communication technology company, in collaboration with Ingenico, a payments solution provider, has upgraded Merseyrailss ticketing systems in the UK to enable contactless payment.

Merseyrail had in place Fujitsus STAR point-of-sale ticketing system since its implementation in 2005. The Merseyside-based rail operator will retain this system, and in conjunction with Ingenico, will provide 92 iPP320 contactless PINPads and Axis, its proprietary centralised payment process solution. These contactless PINPads are PCI DSS compliant and were rolled-out across all Merseyrails manned kiosk and payment terminals at the end of 2013.

Together, the two systems allow customers to use global payment cards featuring contactless technology to touch against the card reader to pay rather than inserting a card into the chip & PIN machine and entering a PIN - for transactions up to GBP 20.

In recent news, Pivotal Payments, a provider of merchant services and global payment processing solutions, and Ingenico have entered an agreement to provide Pivotal Payments’ FlexPoint integrated software terminals to Ingenico’s Canadian processing platform.
