epay Partners with WorldPay to Launch Competitive Merchant Acquiring Deal to
LONDON, January 8, 2013
LONDON, January 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
epay have partnered with WorldPay, Europe's leading provider of merchant
accounts, to allow retailers the ability to process credit and debit card
payments through their epay terminal using their Streamline technology. Not
only will retailers benefit from earning excellent commission rates from
existing products, epay retailers can now also increase spending from
customers who prefer to make purchases using their credit/debit cards, whilst
processing card payments at competitive rates.
Growth in card payments has placed demand on small and medium size businesses
to offer additional payment methods where cash has historically been the
payment of choice. Not only does this bring more footfall into store, but has
also proven to increase basket spend.
In addition to providing payment processing for all major debit and credit
cards including MasterCard and Visa, epay's new terminal with Streamline
technology also offers a range of card payment options to process transactions
in a face to face environment using fixed, portable, and mobile card
On average, UK adults carry up to three cards each, and 89% of the adult
population carry at least one debit or credit card. In order to ensure
consumer shopping experience is quick, simple and stress free, epay are making
payment options convenient, fast and more secure than ever. Customers paying
by cash fell by 5.2% in 2010; in fact, a Dunn & Bradstreet study in September
2012 found that people spend 12-18% more when using credit cards than when
using cash within a retail setting.
epay's new VX 520 terminal with built in card processing technology can also
be connected to broadband to bring transaction speeds down to as little as two
seconds. It allows independent stores to compete with major retailers by
reducing transaction times, and with WorldPay being the only UK processor
operating on a dual authorisation system, retailers will be less likely to
experience downtime, even during peak times.
So why wait? epay is offering all new and existing retailers the chance to
sign up now with £100 off installation costs and no monthly terminal charge
for the first three months*. Take advantage of this fantastic offer and
experience for yourself the benefits of accepting card payments in-store!
*Offer runs until 31 ^st January 2013, full terms and conditions apply.
