Magna Carta and Equens Introduce Alternative for Chipknip

AMSTERDAM, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

'Snel en Simpel Betalen' is already a success in catering

Amsterdam-based Magna Carta, a specialist in facility transaction systems, has entered into a cooperation agreement with payment processor Equens for the introduction of the innovative 'Snel en Simpel Betalen' [Quick & Easy Payments] for educational institutions as an alternative for Chipknip in the Netherlands. The system is based on contactless chip card technology and has been seamlessly integrated into the Magna Carta FacilityPro system. Consequently, existing clients do not need to switch to new POS terminals. 

The card balance is topped up by SEPA Direct Debit. For small amounts, and where normal debit card payments are not possible, users often pay using their personal e-wallet. Equens manages the e-wallets, processes the payments, and handles payments to the merchants. This unburdens organisations, since they no longer need to perform financial management for cardholders and merchants.

The cooperation between Magna Carta and Equens offers a solution for existing Chipknip clients looking for an alternative. What's more, the system will be available on the market this year. The electronic purse Chipknip will be discontinued as from 1 January, 2015. This alternative means of payment is appealing not only for existing Chipknip users, but also for new users.

Magna Carta and Equens will also market 'Snel en Simpel Betalen' internationally with a variety of additional innovative services.

Equens, one of the largest pan-European providers of payment services, is positioning its 'Snel en Simpel Betalen' service as an alternative means of payment for Chipknip, not only for the catering industry - where the system is already widely used - but, from now on, also for unmanned points of sale, such as vending machines, printers and copiers.
