Payment providers CCV and Computop are entering into a strategic partnership for multichannel payment.

Au i.d. Hallertau and Bamberg, 21 April 2016 – The globalisation of trade and the interlinking of e-commerce, mobile and over-the-counter sales present a challenge for trade and payment service providers due to the fact that payment works differently in every country and with every distribution channel.

CVV and Computop are pooling their vast payment expertise to provide the commercial world with secure and standardised payment solutions for all distribution channels - in e commerce, on mobile devices and at POS terminals in stores. This partnership combines decades of experience with the latest technology.

“Computop is the first payment service provider in Germany to be certified for high-security card payments at POS terminals,” explains Christine Bauer, manager of Sales and Marketing and member of the board of directors of CCV Germany. “Computop’s certified point-to-point encryption (P2PE) guards transactions against data theft and removes the need for extravagant PCI certifications. The P2PE solution and the global scope of the Paygate payment platform make Computop one of the best partners for multichannel payment.”

“We value the technology and the detailed knowledge of POS terminals that CCV brings to the partnership,” says Stephan Kück, Computop’s managing director. “For one thing, with CCV as a partner we can offer our customers tried and tested POS technology; for another, we can work with CCV to take the same quality and capacity for innovation that Computop customers worldwide are used to in online payment and apply it to over-the-counter trade.”

Two examples of multichannel payment in action that demonstrate how useful it is in business are:

  • In-Store Return: The customer orders online and wishes to return the product in store in order to buy another product there. The till must then be able to produce a credit note for the online order.
  • In-Store Order: A customer wants to order a product in store that is not in stock. The seller takes the order on a tablet, having the customer pay via a mobile POS terminal. Waiting around at the till is no longer required.

The terminal hardware offered by CCV and Computop ranges from stationary terminals and integrated till solutions, to vending machine modules as well as mobile terminals and multimedia terminals with tablet displays. For the PCI-compliant operation of the terminals, CCV acCEPT platform integrated to the Computop Paygate, which protects merchants’ P2PE data security of P2PE and utilize local European, North American and Asian acquiring banks.
