SIX Payment Services and French food services and facilities management firm Sodexo have signed an agreement under which SIX Payment Services will accept Sodexo cards at its POS terminals in Austria.
Since the end of 2016, Austrian firms have offering their employees meal vouchers in the form of a chip card, Sodexo Food Pass Card. The new card can now be used at all SIX point-of-sale terminals throughout the country.
With this Sodexo chip card, customers will be able to make payment as they would with a debit or credit card, and authorise the transaction with a four-digit PIN or with a signature.
SIX Payment Services managing director of Austria Thomas Grabner said: "We are delighted to have been able to support Sodexo at its market entry into the card-based payment service.
"Paying with Sodexo cards via our POS-Terminals is a significant added value for restaurants and underlines the uncompromising dedication of SIX and Sodexo to their customers.
“We are the first card acceptance partner in Austria to offer direct processing of Sodexo payments. This acceptance of the practical Sodexo payment cards generates new and regular customers and increases sales for merchants.”
