Interac Flash newest hit at HMV Canada
TORONTO-- HMV Canada has joined the growing number of merchants who accept Interac Flash. Interac Flash, which is an enhancement of Interac Debit, is Canada's first contactless debit technology.
"HMV has been Canada's leading entertainment retailer for the past 20 years, and we're very pleased it is making the buying experience even better for its customers by offering Interac Flash," said Mark O'Connell, President and CEO, Interac Association and Acxsys Corporation. "This value-added payment technology helps speed up the checkout process for shoppers and is perfectly suited to an innovative company like HMV."
"Since we opened our first store in 1986, HMV has strived to offer its customers not only the best available products but also outstanding in-store experience and customer service," said Nick Williams, President, HMV Canada. "Offering Interac Flash as a payment option will enhance that experience because of its speed, convenience and security."
HMV will pilot Interac Flash-enabled terminals starting in October and expects to have them in all of its stores across Canada by March 2013. The deployment will be managed by STJ Retail and Global Payments, one of the world's largest electronic transaction processing companies.
"We're pleased to be working with HMV on the rollout of Interac Flash," said Jeff McGuire, Vice President, of Product Delivery and Technology for Global Payments' Canadian operations. "At Global Payments, we're committed to providing our customers with value-added payment solutions like Interac Flash that are cost effective and help drive their business efficiencies."
