DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eason, Ireland’s leading retailer of books, stationery, magazines, cards and much more, has chosen the TNSPay gateway from Transaction Network Services (TNS) to handle payment transactions made across its store network and online portal.
The agreement, which cements Eason’s omni-channel approach, will enable Eason to offer its customers a faster, more reliable checkout experience while simplifying the company’s payment infrastructure with one secure, cost effective and feature-rich payment processing solution.
TNSPay will be deployed by Eason across both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to manage the millions of transactions made each year by its customers.
Niall Gaffey, Group Financial Controller at Eason, said: “We identified the need to strengthen the way we handled payments and selected TNSPay based on its extensive global reach, breadth of features and ability to bring together our offline and online transactions into one easy to manage platform.
“Another factor which was crucial was TNSPay’s flexibility and scalability. It is essential that our payments infrastructure can withstand the pressures of high volumes of traffic, particularly at peak times of the year, such as Christmas, and TNSPay has a proven track record with round the clock support.”
TNSPay is one of the world’s leading payment gateways. The technology is PCI DSS certified and pre-accredited with leading UK and Irish banks, and supports all major EMV card and transaction types, point-to-point encryption and offline authorisation. Users can access a wealth of management information via the powerful transaction search and management tools, and the optional tokenisation technology can help reduce the scope of a merchant’s PCI DSS compliance.
Fintan Byrne, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of TNS’ Payment Gateway Solutions, said: “We’re delighted to be providing Eason with our omni-channel enhancing TNSPay solution. Eason, like a significant number of other retailers, is recognising the benefits of bringing together their multiple customer channels under one omni-channel strategy which streamlines back office functions in a cohesive, efficient and cost-effective manner.
“We’re also excited to be helping Eason introduce new functionality, such as contactless payments. This functionality gives customers more choices in how they make payment transactions in-store as well as supports new digital wallet technology for online shoppers.”
