Verifone and Worldpay Introduce EMV-Grade Contactless Solution at Jimmy John’s

LAS VEGAS--()--Verifone and Worldpay, Inc. (NYSE: WP)(LSE: WPY) today announced the pilot of a new EMV-grade contactless payment acceptance solution at Jimmy John’s. By combining Worldpay’s ultra-fast and highly-secure processing services with Verifone’s Engage P400 device, Jimmy John’s will deliver more convenient, powerful and flexible payment options to its customers.

“At Jimmy John’s, we want the fastest and most secure payment experience for our customers,” said John Shea, Chief Marketing Officer at Jimmy John’s. “With cutting-edge technology from Worldpay and Verifone, we will be even better equipped to provide fast and frictionless service to our customers in the payment method of their choice.”

Jimmy John’s has been a long-standing partner with Worldpay Integrated Payments and will be an early adopter among Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) merchants as it has already begun testing Verifone’s EMV-grade contactless Engage P400 device.

“Worldpay’s significant reach enables Verifone to deliver our next-generation payments solutions to merchants like Jimmy John’s,” said Joe Mach, Verifone’s President of Americas. “With forward-thinking tech, and a partner who can make payments seamless to implement for the merchant, our combined forces continue to give a leg up to businesses everywhere.”

Worldpay’s solution delivers an increased level of security to EMV contactless transactions, while Verifone’s P400, part of the Engage portfolio of devices, features a high-performance touchscreen with rich multimedia and commerce capabilities. Further capabilities include value-added services via mobile wallets like Apple Pay and Google Pay Smart Tap, which enhance the consumer experience for fast and highly-secure transactions.

“Our Worldpay Integrated Payments platform has delivered a customized, market leading solution that aligns to Jimmy John’s, ‘freaky fast’ customer experience needs,” said Matt Taylor, EVP Head of Global Integrated Payments & SMB eCommerce at Worldpay. “Partnering with Verifone to implement their next generation of contactless EMV series devices adds tremendous value to our software developer community and cherished clients like Jimmy John’s.
