An enlarged Group
The Worldline Group has recently expanded with the acquisition of Equens. On the one hand, the Group enhanced its activities in its Financial Processing & Software Licensing (FPL) Global Business Line with the creation of the equensWorldline entity, and, on the other hand, the Group also enhanced its activities in its Merchant Services & Terminals (MS&T) Global Business Line with the PaySquare acquisition. Furthermore, the Worldline Group also improved its Commercial Acquiring offering with a partnership with Komerční Banka (KB), one of the leading banks in the Czech Republic.
Enhanced Merchant Services
Worldline’s Merchant Services & Terminals (MS&T) Global Business Line covers the full retail value chain, online and in-store, through a complete approach. With the partnership with Komerční Banka (KB), Worldline enhanced its MS&T offering. Today, this partnership enables Worldline to provide Commercial Acquiring and Payments Processing services to Czech merchants under the “KB SmartPay” brand. A true digital journey is therefore provided to retailers and their customers. This approach facilitates consumer engagement via seamless services, on any device, with payment at the heart of the shopping experience.
With the acquisition of PaySquare, Equens’ Commercial Acquiring subsidiary, Worldline not only continues towards its ambition to consolidate the European payments market but also reinforces its MS&T offering in order to provide merchants with more and better Acquiring services in more countries, such as the Netherlands and Poland.
