The solution, which combines Worldline’s Petrol & Energy Suite and S&B’s SIQMA Connect solution, is specifically tailored towards fuel retailers and will be implemented across Europe in 2022. This launch is one more step in the successful partnership between the two companies that started almost a decade ago. Responding to an increasingly digitalised payments market, the new product will provide drivers with a more seamless payment experience, allowing them to pay at the pump, carwash, instore etc.
Benefits of the solution deployed by Worldline and S&B will enable the top energy providers to enlarge, for instance, their payment means accepted and allow them to access new customers and sales channels easily. It covers the whole payment value chain, from payment acceptance to acquiring and value-added services, such as Worldline DCC (Dynamic Currency Conversion) and Worldline’s Pay & Drive wallet.
Combining the expertise of Worldline and S&B, this partnership will drive payment infrastructure development in the fuel retail and EV charging sector - in recent years fuel and energy providers have embarked on an exciting journey from commodity providers to mobility players – and it will be deployed in more thousands of petrol stations across the continent. Worldline’s Petrol & Energy Suite is the first global one stop shop dedicated to the petrol & mobility chain sector and has a dedicated team of experts available to answer fuel retailers’ needs. As its core business S&B covers already today the complete mobility chain (fuelling, EV charging, parking, public transport) on a global scale enabling an easier and convenient travelling and more seamless & homogeneous payment for customers along their mobility chain activities. Easy combination of various payment methods & loyalty relevant features and established co-operations with car manufactures, oil companies, energy providers, public transport companies and car park operators lift the payment process to the next level and paves the way for the transition of today’s petrol stations to mobility hubs in near future.
