Partnership between Scheidt & Bachmann and Worldline enables future-proof card processing at petrol stations

- Fuel-Retail-Solutions

Scheidt & Bachmann GmbH and Worldline [Euronext: WLN], the European market leader in the field of payment and transaction services, have successfully implemented their first projects in the German petrol station market. Medium-sized and large petrol station brands have already been equipped with the innovative payment solutions at their sites. At Shell Deutschland Oil GmbH, the largest petrol station network to date will now be equipped with new card terminals from Worldline in 2019. This means that projects in the network operation of WEAT, BS Payone and Shell have been realised. The terminals of the Worldline product family VALINA, YOMANI and YOXIMO represent a future-proof investment for the petrol station industry. In addition to contact card payments, contactless payments, such as Google Pay and Apple Pay, are becoming increasingly important. The contactless acceptance of cards is possible within the scope of the DC POS 3.0 / TA 7.2 specification. This allows customers to pay at the terminals via NFC technology using their mobile phone or other media. 

New in the Shell project is the use of the terminal management system XENTURION. This allows the status of the terminals to be called up at any time. It also forms the basis for PCI P2PE approval via "Remote Key Injection", even at network operator key level. In addition, an expansion stage as a multi-host terminal is planned, which enables corresponding flexibility and use cases such as cross-border acquiring for selected cards.

As part of the project with Shell, around 3,500 Worldline terminals will be rolled out for indoor and outdoor use. Part of the development is an extensive portfolio of fleet and loyalty cards. Shell will use the smart, one-piece VALINA NFC terminal with PIN on GLASS for outdoor applications in the future.

The Worldline terminals are part of the SIQMA products from Scheidt & Bachmann and represent a future-proof investment. New products are currently being integrated into the SIQMA product portfolio. In conjunction with the innovative SIQMA Mobile POS solution, the YOXIMO terminal is used as a WLAN-enabled variant and thus enables mobile card processing for new types of use cases, such as mobile queue busting or use as a card terminal for pre-washers in the car wash environment.
