Worldline today announced that it has achieved Mastercard Enhanced Contactless (Ecos) certification released at the end of January, on its new contactless standard for POS device through Ingenico, a Worldline brand since October 2020.
Bob Reany, Head of Nudata and executive Vice President, Digital Devices & IoT at Mastercard said, “Industry collaboration is integral in order to advance and secure payments across the ecosystem. We believe that contactless is the present and future of payments. Our work with Worldline is groundbreaking in that they are the first global partner to achieve Ecos certification – bringing enhanced contactless capabilities one step closer to the consumer.”
Recently, Worldline announced an extension of its partnership with multi-business company TJ Morris in a bid to speed up transaction times.
