Ingenico Group, global leader in seamless payment services

Founded in 1980 by Jean-Jacques Poutrel and Michel

Malhouitre, Ingenico Group offers secure payment services

across all sales channels. The global leader in seamless payment

services, the Group keeps in step with the future of commerce

by relying on the largest acceptance network in the world, with

solutions that adapt to both the local needs and international

ambitions of its customers.

Following the merger with Sagem Monetel in March 2008 and

entering the Chinese market with the acquisition of Landi in

June 2008, Ingenico Group became the leader in the payment

terminals market, which is estimated to be worth €3 billion

worldwide. Since then, the Group has continued to expand the

geographical presence of its traditional business by expanding

its commercial network, in particular through acquisitions of

distributors in emerging markets such as Indonesia, Russia and,

more recently, Japan and Thailand.

In 2008, the Group decided to build on its market-leading

position and address merchants’ changing needs by expanding

its offering, in order to cover the whole of the payment value

chain, irrespective of the sales channel. Ingenico Group began

laying the groundwork for this expansion by acquiring easycash,

a leading German in-store payment services provider. Then, in

2012, the Group strengthened its position in mPOS solutions

through the takeover of Roam Data Inc. Finally, in 2013 with

the acquisition of Ogone, the European leader in online payment

services, followed in 2014 by that of GlobalCollect, the world

leader in fully integrated online payment services, the Group

accelerated the transformation of its business model towards

services on a global scale, simplifying payment for merchants

across all channels: in-store, online, and mobile.

Today, the Group, global leader in seamless payment services,

boasts a network of over 1,000 banks and acquirers, a presence

in 170 countries, acceptance of more than 300 payment

methods, with more than 250,000 merchants connected to its

platforms.

Ingenico Group focuses its offering around three main

commercial brands: Ingenico Smart Terminals, Ingenico Payment

Services and Ingenico ePayments, launched in January 2016.
