Atos and Travelex Strengthen Partnership
Atos, an international IT services company, has signed a five-year contract with Travelex, a provider of foreign exchange (FX) and international payments for consumer and business customers. Under the agreement Travelex and Atos Worldline will collaborate to provide enhanced cross-border card payment capabilities.
The partnership will allow shoppers at over 72,000 point-of-sale (POS) machines in Atos Worldline’s participating merchant network in Europe to pay in their preferred currency. Travelex Currency Select enables acquirers to provide shoppers with transparency, certainty and choice at the POS.
Atos Worldline and Travelex will work to deploy the cross-border card payment functionality solution on card-present and card-not-present (CNP) e-commerce channels to European merchants in 2012.
