Ingenico launches first two contactless payments in Spain for Repsol and Caprabo

Ingenico, a leading worldwide provider of payment solutions, announced on December 11th that Repsol, the first petrol company and Caprabo, the second retail company, have become pioneers in the installation of contactless payments in Spain. To develop these ambitious projects, both companies have chosen Ingenico’s iPP320 POS terminal. Contactless is gaining momentum in Spain. La Caixa has already issued close to 1 million contactless cards and over 25,000 iPP320 Pin Pads with embedded contactless technology are deployed in the country with numerous clients. Caprabo is considering a total of 1.800 Ingenico contactless terminals to equip its 343 stores. In addition and for petrol, 140 Repsol stations have migrated to contactless notably in Catalonia and in the Baleares, with a potential of up to 3.600 stations in the rest of the country.

On top of this development, Ingenico is the owner and manager of the largest Spanish Petrol Station network with H24, with 5.300 stations throughout the country. Ingenico provides issuing and processing to its more than 200 corporate customers.

The iPP320 PIN Pad has been designed specifically to meet the needs of security, performance and comfort required by merchants. Light and compact, it has a wide, easy-to-read screen, and large back-lit keys. The LEDs at the top and bottom of the device show where the user must insert the card. Its rugged case is also capable of withstanding repeated severe blows. Rapid-response and contactless technology are the great differences in this terminal, which has the required certificates from the leading world markets: EMV 4.0 levels 1 and 2 and the highest security certificate required nowadays, the PCI PTS 2.x certificate, providing maximum security in credit and debit operations.

It also has a simple, universal and highly efficient anti-theft system: a Kensington security slot. The devices are configured with at least 32 megabytes of memory, a USB, serial or Ethernet port, and two processors: one transactional RISC with 32 bits ARM 9 of 450 MIPS and a second processor ARM 7 which deals exclusively with the encryption of sensitive data, providing unprecedented performance.

The North American headquarters of Ingenico are located in Atlanta.
