JCDecaux had approached HST to develop an application that could capture unattended contactless payments on their digital advertising screens.
The challenge here was in the regulatory and security space especially around accepting “unattended” contactless payments.
Unattended payments require a high level of security involving EMV certification for Mastercard & VISA, EMV Level 2 Kernel, and payment security…
The purpose of the application was to run an advertising campaign on JcDecaux free-standing digital advertising panels, intergrated with the digital panel would be a NFC based contactless credit card reader which would accept unattended payments, on detection of a payment from the NFS contactless card reader, the application would play the media files as progrmmed in the backend.
With our experience in the fintech sector and established relationships with many leading companies within the payment industry, we knew exactly the components and the certification level required to deliver a secure and certified solution.
