HTEC has started a roll-out with EG Group to provide Gempay 3 payment terminals and payment processing services to its 370 UK forecourts.

The Gempay 3 supports a full range of debit, credit and fuel cards including contactless, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay and loyalty programmes including Nectar, Clubcard and Star Rewards.

The latest PCI-PTS 4 (Payment Card Industry PIN Transaction Security) compliance allows an extended operating life to ensure return on investment for retailers.

In addition to the 540 payment terminals, HTEC will provide EG Group with card processing services through its payment platform. This roll-out is over 80% deployed and is due for completion by April. Payment transaction volumes are increasing rapidly and currently exceed three million per month.

Guy Bickerstaffe, EG Group director of development, said: "We are always looking for robust, ’best of breed’ systems to support our expanding business. The Gempay 3 payment terminals and underlying payment platform are exactly what we need to ensure, fast, efficient and secure payment processing for our customers. We are looking forward to partnering with HTEC into the future."
