GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Grocery and general merchandise retailer Meijer Stores has completed the upgrade of its customer-facing payment terminals to accept contactless payment cards.
The solution, provided by VeriFone Holdings, Inc., enables Meijer to accept contactless payment cards from MasterCard, American Express, and Visa at all of its locations located in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio.
Meijer recently announced it was the first supercenter chain in the United States to accept MasterCard PayPass. The Meijer Platinum MasterCard card combines the features and benefits of the Meijer private label store card with the worldwide acceptance of a MasterCard card and the added functionality of PayPass contactless 'tap and go' payments.
According to VeriFone, Meijer was able to install the new system with minimum interference to its business. "Meijer was able to update their installed base of Omni 7000MPD systems over a three-month period without disruption," said Bud Waller, VeriFone e.v.p. at Integrated Solutions. "This demonstrates the modular architecture VeriFone developed to future-proof merchant investments and adapt to changing technology and circumstances."
