Eurostar, a high-speed passenger service linking London to mainland Europe, has signed a contract with DataCash to rollout a full multi-channel payment processing solution across cardholder present and cardholder not present transactions, which will also include fraud screening.
The multi-channel payment processing will enable Eurostar customers to make payments online, through call centres, at train stations and on Eurostar trains. The significant benefit to Eurostar is that all payments will be consolidated centrally through the DataCash Payment Gateway. A consolidated approach will also mean that Eurostar is able to deliver a consistent customer experience. The solution itself will addresses secure card processing and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance with a full product suite to include tokenisation and end-to-end encryption.
