Worldline launches payment solution that allows consumers to pay for electric vehicle charging

Monday 12 April 2021 13:07 CET | News

Worldline has announced the release of a new unified payment solution that allows consumers in Europe to pay for electric vehicle (EV) charging quickly, conveniently, and safely.

According to the press release, the growth of EV charging presents a challenge in terms of payments since charging stations are unattended, leading to a risk of non-payment, and will be used by customers with a range of currencies and payment methods. The market requires an end-to-end offering with omnichannel capabilities that allows for app-based, contactless and PIN pad payment authorisation. These payments will also have to be pre-authorised and allow for payment in multiple currencies.

Consequently, Worldline’s Easy EV solution addresses the needs of both EV charging geographies and client business models. Payments can be taken on four different card readers with both touchscreen and press-button operation and includes simplified acquiring coverage over Europe. The solution will be rolled out to infrastructure owners, charging point operations, electric mobility providers and EV charger manufacturers across the continent to help supercharge their businesses.

Overall, given the growth of both EVs and digital payments, the WL Easy EV payment solution is uniquely positioned to impact not just the EV charging market, but to become part of everyday life for millions of people across Europe as EVs become more common, the company's officials reported.
