Hypercom Corp. announced that Carrefour, a global retailer, will deploy Hypercom’s Wynid server-based payment solution and more than 12,000 PIN Pads with EMV contactless readers at 210 of its French hypermarkets, as well as at all of Carrefour’s petrol stations in France.
The multi-million dollar agreement is believed to represent one of the world’s largest deployments of EMV contactless readers and represents an expansion to Hypercom’s existing business with Carrefour. The giant retailer already uses Hypercom’s Wynid secure payment solution at 15,000 cash registers in its Market, City and Contact stores.
The Carrefour Group is the largest retailer in Europe, and the second largest worldwide, with more than 15,000 stores under banner in 33 countries and more than 490,000 employees.
The Group combines different store formats – hypermarkets, supermarkets, hard discount, convenience stores and cash and carry outlets – adapting to its customers’ consumption patterns.
The Carrefour Group has selected Hypercom’s electronic payment solution for its hypermarkets in France. Country-wide deployment of the solution started in October 2009.
