Worldnet Completes First EMV Certification With Ingenico’s Self Series
Worldnet Payments, a trusted provider of omnichannel payment solutions for independent software vendors (ISVs) in self-service retail, announced that it became the first integrated payments platform to complete a Level III EMV and Contactless certification of the Self Series from Ingenico, a Worldline brand.
The demand for unattended and contactless payment solutions has taken off with 80% of in-store shoppers open to nontraditional checkout and claiming they prefer self-service if available. Consumers are becoming accustomed to such convenience, leaving businesses on the search for solutions that offer a seamless purchase journey.
Ingenico is part of Worldline, the largest European player in payment services and the fourth largest worldwide. The Self Series offers compact, engaging, and scalable all-in-one payment solutions for self-service businesses.
The rugged Self devices allow merchants to process payment in different formats including contactless, magstripe, and smartcard. They also offer cameras, barcode readers, color displays, and advanced features. The devices covered by this EMV certification include the Self/2000, Self/4000, and Self/5000. This augments Worldnet's omnichannel solutions, which support unattended, in-store, online, and mobile payments.
"The opportunities this certification opens up for our customers to scale up and re-imagine their payments strategy is huge," said Conn Bryne, SVP of Sales at Worldnet. "Our pre-certified EMV-ready SDK eliminates the usual costs and challenges associated with EMV certification. This certification allows us to quickly secure Ingenico hardware when many other devices are on backorders, so our customers can get the first-to-market advantage."
