Innovation on the beach

Spectators at the German beach volleyball championships in August 2018 were able to pay for goods and services with a simple movement of the wrist, thanks to a contactless payment innovation from Worldline, Comdirect bank and Visa. The 5,000 bracelets used at the event included Worldline's first open-loop wearable solution, which confirms and completes payment with a beep.

Worldline equipped all stands at the event with innovative NFC payment terminals, so that payment could be made using any credit card with contactless payment functions, making payment fast, fun and dynamic – just like beach volleyball.

E-ticketing comes to Dijon

For the first time in France, passengers on the public transport network of a large city are now paying for their journeys using contactless payment cards, smartphones or even connected watches.

Thanks to an end-to-end solution introduced by Worldline, transport operator Keolis and other partners, travelers in the central French city of Dijon no longer need to line up to purchase tram tickets from vending machines. They simply board the trams and validate their journey by tapping their contactless payment cards on the terminal, whatever bank they use. During inspections, the user's contactless payment card is validated on the controller's terminal to establish the user's right to travel.

This innovation, available throughout Dijon's two tram lines, will be extended to the city's bus network in a second phase. By increasing the appeal of public transport compared to cars, the technology will have a positive impact on traffic conditions and air quality. The Worldline solution covers all aspects, ranging from the supply of validation equipment to the processing of transactions and payments.
