Small- and medium-sized forecourt retailers are being given an opportunity to switch to the kind of advanced Chip & PIN, contactless and mobile payment systems currently used by major multiple retailers but at a fraction of the cost.

The new system is being introduced by Consolis Payments, and by being able to switch to affordable integrated contactless and mobile payment systems, forecourt retailers will benefit from faster payment processing, shorter queues and cost savings enjoyed by the multiples.

Consolis is launching the new service in association with WorldPay-owned Streamline, one of Europe’s leading card payment processors. The service will allow retailers to accept all major credit cards via secure face-to-face payments, online payments and telephone payments. Tim Allen, managing director of Consolis Payments, said: "Contactless payments are growing in popularity and the big multiple stores are already equipped to take full advantage of this shift. It is now becoming essential for smaller retailers to switch to integrated till and payment systems as well."
