The Midcounties Co-operative will be using Transaction Network Services’s TNSPay solution as part of a point of sale upgrade it is undertaking with retail integrator InControl which will allow the co-operative to accept contactless payments of up to GBP 20, alongside EMV Chip and PIN transactions, processed by the PA-DSS validated TNSPay Payment Client. Support for contactless payments will be integrated into the PIN Entry Device and will not require a separate reader.
According to Andy Cresswell, Deputy CEO – Trading at Midcounties Co-operative: “When considering the upgrade to our ePOS estate, it was vital that we worked with a provider that could reduce our PCI compliance efforts, while enhancing our systems with new technologies. Contactless payments will allow customers to pass through our checkouts more quickly and easily, while the point-to-point encryption functionality should go a substantial way to reducing both the cost and complexity of our PCI compliance requirements.”
TNSPay is a multi-channel payment gateway solution, which supports all major EMV cards and transaction types.
