Suresite Group targets vending with its new unattended contactless payment solution

SuresiteSuresite Group, the leading forecourt retail specialist, has announced its new ‘unattended’ contactless payment solution – developed with payment solutions provider Vianet –  is now live. What’s more, word isthat it has exceeded initial expectations, positioning the company as a pioneer in a market it considers to be ‘largely underserved’.

The launch of this new payment solution marks a significant milestone for Suresite Group, providing momentum to penetrate new markets, such as vending.

Suresite cemented its strategic partnership with Vianet in late 2022, in order to develop a solution to meet the rising demand for unattended card transactions, not to mention the increasing appetite for contactless payment solutions among consumers.

As if to emphasise the point, Juniper Research’s latest Contactless Payments research predicts contactless transactions will grow 130% globally in the next five years, taking the market size from its current $4.7tn to $11tn in 2027.

‘In today’s economic climate, cost savings, smart decision-making, and efficient operations are essential for businesses to navigate financial pressures and uncertainties’, Nick Horne, Sales and Commercial Director at Suresite Group, said. Consequently, automated retail businesses are on the rise, driven by changing customer expectations and experiences that require an evolution in payments.

‘Thanks to our focus on innovation and customer-centric solutions, we’ve been quick to identify and address these evolving demands with this new launch, which is already taking us into new verticals’, Nick added.‘With the ability to accept payment via contactless devices at any unattended site, Suresite is providing customers with the prospect of ‘more-sales-less-cost’, which – excitingly – puts us at the forefront of a growing industry that’s been largely under-served and overlooked.’

SuresiteThe new solution sees market-leading acquiring services of Suresite join forces with Vianet’s contactless payment solution hardware, which is available in two versions, the Smart Contact and the Smart Contact Pro – making it an exciting option for merchants too.

With zero hardware costs, customers benefit from a competitive, user-friendly and highly secure payments solution able to futureproof most unattended solutions such as washing machine services, coffee machines, charging points, and unmanned jet washes and air and vac stations.

‘Demand has been high in the initial weeks following the go-live date, with customers impressed by a number of key benefits’, Nick said. ‘The hardware is highly secure, being PCI level 1 certified; transaction fees are competitive and customers can receive cash in their bank from 24 hours. Plus, there are additional capabilities to advertise other services.’
