German multinational car rental company Sixt has selected payment service provider Computop to enable it process all card payments in accordance with the latest standards.

Under the deal, Computop will act as the central service provider for customer payments from all channels.

The changeover will see payments from online stores, POS terminals and telephone bookings (MOTO) across all of Sixt’s corporate countries run through a single platform.

The car rental company will switch to uniform, NFC-capable card terminals in its stations in Europe and the USA.

The company will also incorporate the Computop Paygate payment platform that will facilitate selection and integration of acquirer and payment service connections cost-consciously.

Sixt senior director of damage management & payments Fabian Mansfeld said: “By integrating Computop into our payment platform, we can centrally control our various payment channels, including the POS terminals, and enable cross-channel transactions.

“The use of standard P2PE card terminals in the Sixt corporate countries simplifies our system landscape and also offers our customers maximum security.”

Computop managing director Stephan Kück said: “We are delighted to be able to integrate a true global Omnichannel solution for Sixt that is exemplary for the future industry of mobility.

“Processing via our Computop Paygate also gives Sixt new possibilities for the analysis and reporting of its global payment transactions.”
