Safe. Smart. Secure.

Even just a few years ago, writing about the demise of cash would have seemed unthinkable. Cash is king – or so the saying goes, but not in today’s fast-paced world, customers are now demanding quick, effective and secure ways to buy goods and then go about their day. Time is of a premium to many busy shoppers, so long queues and waiting for change are not an option.

Customers have been using credit and debit cards for some time – but the introduction of contactless technology really made a difference. Initially, consumers were hesitant but the pandemic shifted public perception and contactless was considered the safest way to pay. Now, with the current transaction limit sitting at £100, its popularity has exploded.

Indoor payment terminals (IPTs) are electronic devices that facilitate transactions between customers and merchants. These terminals are typically used in indoor settings and are designed to accept various payment methods such as credit cards, debit cards, and mobile payments.

Outdoor payment terminals (OPTs) are unattended payment facilities that provide customers with secure self-service transaction options, using contact or contactless payment methods. OPTs are the perfect solution for unmanned stations or for high-traffic sites where customers want to refuel on the move.

While such technology will require significant investment in terms of time and money, it is imperative for fuel retailers to provide a range of popular payment facilities to satisfy consumer demand and keep pace with the competition.

Safe and secure

Arguably, the most crucial element of any payment transaction for both retailers and customers is data security. One isolated instance of a data breach can destroy the reputation of a business and consumer trust is often damaged beyond repair.

Advancements in payment technology have made purchasing goods and services swift and simple, but the principles of data protection that retailers must uphold are more stringent than ever before.

The required standards for payment card security are set by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), to ensure that regulations are consistent across the globe. Any business that processes, transmits or stores cardholder data must comply with PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) requirements. These guidelines shape how payment security is implemented and are constantly being developed to reflect changes in new fraud prevention techniques.

FuelPOS is the industry-leading electronic point of sale (EPOS) system that connects seamlessly with fuel dispensers, price signs, tank level gauges, car washes, electric vehicle charge points and the back office. Fuel POS not only complies with the strict data security regulations enforced by the PCI DSS – it exceeds them.
