Eurostar has partnered with iZettle to bring mobile Chip & PIN readers to its fleet of high-speed trains connecting the UK, France and Belgium.
The mPOS system will be used to process sales of upgrades bought on-board – which added up to over £300,000 in 2012.
“At Eurostar we believe that our passengers’ journeys should be seamless, from the start of the booking process right through to arrival at their destination,” said James Blackwood, on-board services general manager at Eurostar.
“Using iZettle’s Chip & PIN reader we can process upgrade sales more quickly, reducing the number of sales lost using slower, more traditional methods of payment collection. This has helped streamline our on-board upgrade process making the task less complicated for our on-board teams whilst at the same time increasing customer satisfaction.”
