10 Sep 2009 – Under the terms of the agreement, when fully implemented, more than 74,000 Trionis ATMs across Europe will be able to process ATM transactions for Diners Club International® and Discover® cards.
“Since acquiring Diners Club, one of Discover’s priorities has been to strengthen global acceptance,” said Dave Schneider, president of Pulse. “Our agreement with Trionis is a significant multi-country acquirer agreement to further European acceptance of Diners Club and Discover cards and an important step in helping to reach that goal.”
The service went live in several countries on 1 July, with acceptance of Diners Club cards at the ATMs of banks in Austria, Switzerland, Portugal, Spain, Luxembourg and Belgium. Discover cards are expected to begin being accepted at Trionis European ATMs in October 2009.
“Trionis is pleased to be able to facilitate broader card acceptance at European cash access machines,” said Ernst Verbeek, managing director of Trionis. “Acceptance of Diners Club and Discover cards will allow us to serve more card members, while giving ATM operators access to additional ATM transactions.”
