B+S Card Service has launched its PCI PTS 3.0 compliant VX820 DUET and VX680 payment terminals to the UK market offering it’s merchants greater speed and reliability for electronic payments.
Director of Product Management & Marketing Robert Beer commented: “The VX820 and VX680 provide existing and potential customers with high-end technology, fast transaction speeds and the highest levels of security. B+S is committed to a customer orientated approach and adding these products to the portfolio in the UK will significantly enhance our customer offering. We are delighted that they are now available to UK merchants.”
The new terminals will make B+S’s multi-currency technology – B+S Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) – available to UK merchants. B+S DCC enables the terminal to automatically identify the payment card’s country of origin. The terminal then displays the sales amount in GBP, and subsequently shows it in the card holder’s domestic currency including the currency conversion rate.
Mr Beer added: “We are excited that the launch of the VX820 and VX680 terminals will bring with it B+S DCC to UK merchants. As well as offering all standard payment terminal functionality, including contactless, the terminals incorporate B+S DCC as an excellent value added service.”
