By Verdict Staff

Payment solution providers ACI Worldwide and Verifone are set to join forces to offer a comprehensive pan-European card payments platform for European retailer Auchan Group.

The retailer already leverages ACI’s omni-channel UP Retailer Payments solution for cross-border payments.

The solution will now integrate with Verifone’s VX 820 PIN pads and payment as a service provision to manage card and non-card transactions in-store.

The new platform will adhere to the nexo standards, which are unified card payments standards designed to support international interoperability.

ACI Worldwide head of merchant retail Europe Andrew Quartermaine said: "ACI, Verifone, and Auchan share the same disruptive payments vision and we are pleased to open up our flexible multi-vendor, acquirer-agnostic solution to work collaboratively with Verifone in support of Auchan."

The platform is anticipated to be rolled out to all Auchan stores across France later in 2016.

Auchan Group head of group global payments development Arnaud Crouzet said: "This new platform, which complies with the nexo standards, is part of our strategy for a safer, more open and more accessible European centralized payments platform. The partnership with ACI Worldwide and Verifone means we will be able to work with open and flexible solutions."
