Edenred is launching a brand new card on the Belgian voucher issuer market. A combination of Edenred and Mastercard technologies, the new card can be used in all retailers for physical, contactless or online payment and, as a first on the market, as mobile payment with Google Pay. Your best card!
Compatible with all types of terminal
The new Edenred card is compatible with all the terminals on the market thanks to the combination of Edenred and Mastercard technologies, both in shops and on all the Belgian e-commerce websites. All you need to do to join the network is sign a contract with Edenred.
The two applications cohabit on this new card, but Edenred technology will always be used in priority. There is no impact for partner retailers in the acceptance network. The price conditions for Edenred transactions remain identical. Transactions that go via the Mastercard payment scheme, e.g. mobile payments via Google Pay, are also subject to the usual Mastercard payment fees.
If you have several terminals, some of which are not yet activated for the Edenred card, you can now accept the card on them thanks to the association of Mastercard technology.
If you’re already a partner of the Edenred card acceptance network, you can accept the new card directly. No action is required on your side. The two technologies combined on the same card enable to give priority to the Edenred system already in place on your terminal when a card payment is made. The transactions are then processed by Edenred, as usual.
If your customer chooses mobile payment using a connected device (smartphone, watch, etc.), the transaction will then be processed by the Mastercard payment network and refunded by your acquirer (usually your bank).
If you offer mobile payment in your establishment, you can now also accept Edenred vouchers with Google Pay, with a smartphone or connected watch. In this case, Mastercard processes the refund according to the terms of your contract with your acquirer, like any other transaction involving a Mastercard card.
If you have an e-commerce website, you can accept the Edenred card online easily! The Edenred card has been compatible with online payments since 2016. Now, the collaboration with Mastercard enables compatibility with all the online payment service providers and all the e-commerce websites in Belgium. It’s then Mastercard who processes the refund according to the terms of your contract with your acquirer, like any other transaction involving a Mastercard card.
