Contactless payment ensures consumers have a fast, convenient and secure alternative to cash.
Ingenico Group, the global leader in seamless payment, today announced that it has provided Dallmayr, a leading Vending Machines operator, with self-service contactless payment technologies for its vending machines in the Czech Republic.
Today’s consumers expect the convenience, security and simplicity that comes with cashless payment. Recognizing this need, Dallmayr has partnered with Ingenico Group on introducing electronic payment in vending machines. The current project involves over 50 coffee vending machines equipped with Ingenico contactless terminals deployed throughout the city of Prague. Dallmayr plans to further expand the use of Ingenico technology across Czech Republic in 2017.
The solution powered by Ingenico includes the iUC180B contactless reader (of the Ingenico iSelf range, tailored to unattended and vending market), able to manage the acceptance of any contactless/NFC cards, and the related payment software application. Acquiring services are provided by ČSOB. The introduction of contactless payments allows Dallmayr to provide its customers with a new payment option that is fast, easy to use and secure.
We are pleased to support Dallmayr in its efforts to make cashless payments on its vending machines simple and secure. Many Czechs prefer contactless technology to cash payments, so we believe the solution deployed by Ingenico will benefit Dallmayr customers.’ comments Martina Kirchrathová, Ingenico Group Country Manager for Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Our goal is to provide not only quality products, but also improve purchasing experience and speed up transactions. Ingenico’s iUC180B contactless modules bring a very convenient alternative to cash. Field trials have proved that our customers welcome the possibility to pay with their contactless cards. We would like to extend the solution to other vending machines across Czech Republic.‘ commented Roman Pacolt, Sales Director of Dallmayr CZ.
Contactless payment for vending machines is the next step for the extension of cashless payment to more segments of the retail market in the Czech Republic. We are proud to support this project as a partner for processing transactions and making sure that payments will be increasingly quick and easy.’ said Jan Kubíček, Head of Business development CSOB.
