SIX Payment Services Allows Easy Acceptance of Sodexo Cards

SIX Payment Services has its reputation of being Austria’s premier acquirer accepting Sodexo cards at its POS-Terminals.

As of the end of the year in 2016, Austrian companies have had the ability to provide their employees with the widely known meal vouchers via a convenient chip card. The Sodexo “Food Pass Card” is now available on all POS Terminals from SIX throughout the country.

Card payments have rapidly become a major facet to the daily lives of Austrians and so issuing Sodexo meal vouchers in a card format was the next obvious move.

These new cards, equip with a chip, make it exponentially easier to redeem vouchers, as customers pay as they would with their personal debit or credit card, and authorize the purchase with their PIN code or with a signature. After, this cashless payment is seamlessly processed by SIX Payment Services.

The ability to process Sodexo payments for its customers like any other payment came simultaneously as SIX became the first acquirer in Austria to integrate Sodexo into its processing system.

No more billing expenses due to integration into existing SIX systems

Thomas Grabner, Managing Director of SIX Payment Services in Austria 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.”
