Kurt Gjesten, Managing Director & CEO. PAN Nordic Card Association (PNC)

 

Ingenico has been an early and very pro-active supporter and implementer of nexo standards. Ingenico developed comprehensive solutions for both the organized retail and small merchants based on nexo standards, implementing the nexo-Fast payment application and the RET protocol. Ingenico solutions were consistently the first to reach certification.  First market deployments (millions of transactions are processed weekly based on nexo standards) are very promising: performance and stability levels are up to expectations, and customers are extremely satisfied. 
As we currently see the market demand evolving towards multi-country, international acceptance solutions, we expect adoption of nexo standards to increase very rapidly in the coming years.

Stephane Jacquis, Managing Director, Multi-channel services. Ingenico

 

Today, acceptance protocols in Europe vary from country to country. A complex situation for merchants. nexo is a consortium involving all  the stakeholders of the payment  industry value chain working to develop a common protocol and unified solution to facilitate electronic payments in  Europe. The harmonization of card payments protocols across countries can stimulate innovation and accelerate the deployment of services.

Jean Diacono, Vice President, General Manager, American Express Payment Services France and The Netherlands

 

Being able to offer the best payment facilities on the European market, while offering the best possible customer experience is one of our key strategic priorities. We are excited to be one of the early adopter and taking an active role in shaping industry standards which will bring numerous benefits to all stakeholder of the card payment ecosystem. We firmly believe that businesses will benefit from the interoperability and clarity that nexo is bringing to the industry, and we are glad to contribute our ideas and expertise to help achieve this goal.

Frédéric Mazurier, CEO Market Pay. Carrefour

 

In Europe, we operated and managed 8 different electronic payment systems. Such context was preventing us to provide rapidly to our customers the newest payment solutions available. The goal was therefore to find a common European solution, easily and quickly scalable, reducing our strong dependency from the different suppliers – terminal providers and bank acquirers. By supporting the strategic views and the creation of SEPA by the European Commission and the European Central Bank, adopting the nexo Acquirer standard became the obvious choice for us.

With its standards for the acceptance of card payments, nexo is expected to contribute to the harmonization of the acceptance infrastructure, thus allowing the market to migrate successively from a more fragmented legacy infrastructure towards a harmonized one, which ultimately should lead to reduced costs and increased interoperability.
