Subway chooses Worldline to provide payment solutions across Europe

By Evie Rusman

Subway has chosen payments provider Worldline to roll out payment solutions to its restaurants across Europe.

Worldline won a three-year contract with the American restaurant franchise including POS and online acceptance. The roll-out is planned across multiple markets starting in 2020.

Justin Goes, Regional Director Europe Subway International, said: “The Subway brand highly relies on all our locations to deliver a smooth customer experience. In order to support our franchise owners to live up to this ambition, we strive for a maximum ease of operations, also and in particular when it comes to payments.

“Working with Worldline as our central payment technology provider ensures a right performance at check-out as well as maximum flexibility now and in the future.”

Worldline’s payment solution 

Worldline’s solution includes POS and e-commerce acceptance as well as payment terminals operating with NEXO retailer protocol. This sets the standards for easy interoperability with all NEXO-compliant cash registers.

Vincent Roland, Managing Director Merchant Services of Worldline, said: “Worldline has a proven track record with large Franchise organisations. We are particularly proud to be able to support Subway with the latest payment technology, our pan-European reach and our comprehensive know-how in deploying our solutions in the complex, multiple-stakeholder environment.”

Through the partnership, Subway hopes to benefit from Worldline’s solutions when it comes to management information. In addition, Worldline’s onboarding portal allows franchise owners to set up the payments functionality quickly.

Worldline and Ingenico

In recent news, Worldline acquired Ingenico, making it the fourth-biggest payments company in the world.

Worldline has agreed to buy its French peer Ingenico for a sum of €7.8bn. This would offer a premium of around 16% to Ingenico’s current market capitalisation of around €6.7bn.

The companies expect to close the transaction by the third quarter of 2020.
