VeriFone announced a multi-million dollar order from Akbank for 41,000 VeriFone contactless payment devices for deployment throughout Turkey.
The order comprises 26,000 VX 520 countertop systems, 10,000 of the newly introduced VX 680 wireless portable handheld payment devices, and 5,000 of the PIN-based and contactless payment-enabled PINpad 1000SE customer-activated systems.
According to VeriFone, the VX 520 and VX 680, both introduced earlier this year as part of the new VX Evolution product family, are all new payments solutions that support varied merchant environments and are designed for extended life. The PINpad 1000SE supports both PIN-based and contactless payment, as well as a wide range of payment and non-payment contactless applications that are certified for global use.
Akbank currently provides card payment processing services to more than a quarter of a million merchants throughout Turkey.
