Reimagine in-store payments

The next generation card present payment scene

TietoEVRY, MYPINPAD and Surfboard Payments are happy to announce the newly formed partnership where a software offering will be brought to the Nordic market that enables merchants to securely accept payments via Android or iOS devices including smartphones and tablets and capture customer data for loyalty and marketing activities.

The new solution for revolutionising payments for Nordic merchants

Where traditional, single-purpose card terminals have limitations in creating seamless customer experiences and do not enable the capture of data, the solution offered from the partnership between TietoEVRY/MYPINPAD/Surfboard opens up a world of possibilities to innovate in this space. The partnership brings a newly developed software application to the Nordic region that enables merchants to securely accept payments from any Android or iOS-run devices, without needing single-purpose card terminals. The solution allows the consumer’s option of payment methods, such as card, Swish, mobile payments, and invoices.

We can now offer the first-ever tap to phone in-store checkout in the Nordics by putting all the pieces together. Based on MYPINPAD's SPoC and CPoC solutions, it can be deployed on any NFC-enabled device running iOS or Android operating systems, and with both solutions certified under Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council (SSC), we can ensure the offering's security and global acceptance.

Using the Surfboard Payments white-label solution for this, the merchant adds value within the customer experience thanks to the Surfboard in-store checkout app on a customer-facing screen at the countertop offering multiple payment methods, and grab valuable data in real-time and make it available for greater customer targeting and marketing activities on the same customer-facing screen. Empowering all of the payments is the TietoEVRY robust processing platform that ensures full availability and offers the most cost-effective and easily integrated services on the market, with links to all the main acquirers in the Nordics.

We started Surfboard Payments because we believe the paradigm shift for in-store payments is long overdue and will take place in the near future. We are very excited about the partnership and look forward to enabling Nordic merchants to offer better customer experiences for card-present payments in completely new ways
