Wednesday 18 December 2013 13:26 CET | News

Swedish social payments company iZettle has entered a partnership with Eurostar, the high-speed train service which links the UK, France and Belgium, to process on-board passenger upgrades.

Eurostar is now using iZettle’s Chip & PIN readers on-board its fleet of trains to process payments for passengers wishing to upgrade their travel class after commencing their journeys.

iZettle’s Chip & PIN reader is designed for businesses that demand card payments with flexibility. The Chip & PIN reader, in conjunction with iZettle’s app, connects wirelessly, via Bluetooth, to a smartphone or tablet and allows users to accept card payments and manage their business. iZettle’s Chip & PIN reader is compatible with all major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

In 2012 Eurostar processed over GBP300,000 worth of upgrade sales through on- board transactions.

iZettle provides hardware and software that can be used by small merchants to turn smartphones and tablets into mobile credit-card terminals. iZettle’s services are compliant with EMV (Europay, MasterCard and VISA) standards as well as with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). No sensitive data is stored on the mobile device or iZettle reader and all data traffic is encrypted.

In recent news, iZettle has entered a partnership with Situation Sthlm, a magazine sold by homeless people in Stockholm.
