Euro Garages is rolling out new payment terminals and payment processing services to 370 UK petrol forecourts.

The petrol retailing and convenience store operator, which has about 4,700 sites across Europe and North America, has signed HTEC to supply it with 540 Gempay 3 payment terminals and payment processing services.

Gempay 3 supports a range of debit, credit and fuel cards, including contactless, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay and loyalty programmes that include Nectar, Clubcard and Star Rewards.

The terminal is compliant with the latest Payment Card Industry - PIN Transaction Security (PCI-PTS 4), which HTEC said allowed an extended operating life to ensure retailers enjoyed an “excellent” return on investment.

The rollout, including card processing services through HTEC’s payment platform, is expected to be completed by April.

HTEC, whose customers also include Spar, Rontec, Budgens, One Stop and Nisa, said payment transaction volumes were increasing rapidly in the 80% of EG Group stores deployed so far and currently exceeded three million a month.

Guy Bickerstaffe, EG Group director of development, said his company was always looking for “robust, best-of-breed” systems to support its expanding business.

“The Gempay 3 payment terminals and underlying payment platform are exactly what we need to ensure fast, efficient and secure payment processing for our customers,” he said.

HTEC payments director Stephen Noon added: “The Gempay 3 payment solution has been designed to meet the very demanding requirements of the forecourt and convenience sectors and the continuing rollout shows how well it is being received by major retailers.”
