it to provide more than 1,500 card payment terminals and smart card-enabled PIN pads.
The equipment will help the state-owned bank expand its nationwide credit and debit card transaction processing network for retailers.
Separately, Hypercom said a leading Polish bank, Wilkopolski Bank Kredytowy (WBK), will deploy 1,500 of its ICE 5000 brand touch-screen card payment terminals. The Polish bank has also ordered advanced point of sale networking systems based on Hypercom's Integrated Enterprise Network equipment.
WBK has ordered the gear so it can enter the merchant-acquiring business. "As a new acquirer in the rapidly expanding Polish market, it is very important that we provide our merchants with a high-quality, end-to-end, value-added solutions and services approach," said Maciej Biniek, deputy director of the WBK card center.
