HTEC has started a roll-out with Euro Garages to provide Gempay 3 payment terminals and payment processing services to its 370 petrol forecourts in the UK.

Euro Garages is the UK arm of EG Group, which operates over 4,700 retail sites in Europe and the US.

The Gempay 3 is a market leading payment terminal and 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 of this year. Payment transaction volumes are increasing rapidly and currently exceed three million per month.

Stephen Noon, payments director of HTEC, commented: “EG Group is an international force in the forecourt and convenience retail market. They have a well-deserved, global reputation for innovation and extraordinary standards of customer service and we are delighted to have won our first major contract with them. The Gempay 3 payment solution has been designed to meet the very demanding requirements of the forecourt and convenience sectors and the continuing roll-out shows how well it is being received by major retailers.”

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.”
