3C Payment has announced further enhancement of their retail proposition through successful roll out of an integrated payment solution with WHSmith.
With the continued expansion of their International travel sites, WHSmith needed a flexible, tried and tested payment provider, who could provide a standardized cross-border Pan European solution. In addition, WHSmith needed a partner who were already integrated with their preferred POS software from Aptos.
3C worked with WHSmith to define all requirements, create the project plan, work through rigorous testing and complete a successful pilot. The first sites deployed have been at airport sites across Spain, Germany and Italy. The solution deployed at these sites is the secure, innovative 3C Pay@Counter Retail terminal solution providing speed, resilience and security. All transactions are processed through the 3C Integra secure P2PE validated gateway.
Some of the key requirements for WHSmith was the speed of transaction, and reliability of payment processing in the event of a network failure.
“3C were selected as our payment provider for the expansion into European markets as we look to broaden our footprint in this territory,” Chris Hendon – Project Manager, WHSmith.
“Having a Pan-European agreement and solution enables us to scale and deploy to new markets and countries at real speed. Having a secure integrated solution ready to go has become a real asset in lowering barriers and costs to entry.”
