Leading forecourt retail specialist Suresite Group has teamed up with ShopMate, one of the UK’s leading EPOS suppliers, to bring integrated fuel card and payment processing to forecourts and convenience stores across the UK.
With the ever changing and developing forecourt and convenience sector in the UK both partners recognised the need for an integrated fuel card and payment processing solution.
Building on a desire to drive value and simplicity for their mutual customers, an integrated solution to automate the acceptance of both fleet fuel cards and payment cards via the ShopMate EPOS system was created. Hence, retailers can now offer their customers the option to pay using fuel cards, without any of the previously associated inconvenience. The partnership gives retailers the added bonus of processing their payments from just 24 hours, improving cashflow and freeing up valuable resource. Integration between EPOS and fuel cards has previously been few and far between but after a successful testing phase, the nationwide rollout of the partnership will begin in October 2023.
The integration reduces both processing time and risk of keying errors; linking fuel pumps to ShopMate EPOS and through to the Suresite terminal. Greater opportunity, greater efficiency, lower risk.
Nick Horne, Sales & Commercial Director for Suresite Group says:
‘’We’re excited to be working with ShopMate to bring an integrated solution to the forecourt sector. Our reliable and cost-effective Orion device works in perfect sync with ShopMate EPOS to provide customers and businesses with a seamless experience. Users will gain access to our online marketplace – Suresite Connex to ensure complete visibility of their transactions and invoices, as well as the benefit of a 5* Feefo rated customer service team and the option to have the transactions processed and in their bank from just 24 hours.”
Brian Eagle-Brown, Managing Director ShopMate, says:
“Our partnership with the Suresite Group is a major development within integrated fuel card and payment processing for Forecourts and the Convenience sector in the UK. The integration between ShopMate EPOS and Suresite payment processing will undoubtedly make a real difference to our mutual customers, subject to brand agreements. We are continuously delivering improvements for our customers and this integration will certainly deliver new opportunities to save time and effort.”
