NCR Brings Contactless ATMs to Poland with ING
Financial institutions and retailers are looking for a variety of methods to deliver flexible payment options for their customers. Beyond NFC-enabled devices, NCR has implemented or introduced proof of concepts using contactless cards, 2D barcode transactions, and one-time PINs for ATM transactions alone.
The contactless-card enabled machines permit ING customers with VISA and MasterCard debit contactless cards to initiate fast cash withdrawals by holding their card near the ATM reader. Upon a confirmation of their PIN code, customers will have the choice of a cash dispense in common “fast cash” values.
Today in Poland 70 percent of all cards are equipped with contactless technology, and more than 50 percent of EFTPOS accept contactless transactions. With the number of contactless transactions in the country growing very rapidly the demand for more contactless options has increased.
