MONTREAL, January 22, 2019 – Nuvei, a leading provider of global fintech solutions and the first-ever community of payment experts, has announced it has completed certification to the new Telium Tetra suite of smart terminals from Ingenico Group in Canada. This milestone enables Nuvei’s partners and merchants to benefit from Ingenico’s advanced new line of payment devices on Nuvei’s powerful processing platform.

It also marks the launch of Nuvei’s fully redesigned POS terminal interface. The combined solution is aimed at improving ease of use, dependability and flexibility across multiple business settings, while offering the highest level of security at the point-of-sale.


Nuvei’s front-end acquiring switch provides direct connectivity with major credit card brands and Interac for secure and reliable authorization, processing and bankcard settlement. The company’s in-house team also developed and maintains the next-generation terminal’s core payment application and provides direct integration support to its ISV and VAR partners.

  • An intuitive touchscreen interface with new graphical capabilities, optimized for rich multimedia
  • Accepts the widest range of payment methods, using a variety of connectivity options for in-store and mobile wireless applications
  • Processes all forms of electronic payment including EMV, and NFC/contactless for Apple Pay and Google Pay
  • Faster transaction processing with 4G speeds that also enhances connectivity in city centers and within buildings
  • Best-in-class security with PCI-PTS 5.x certification and the latest future-proof cryptographic schemes
  • Future support for 3rd party value added applications such as gift card, loyalty or survey programs

“Ingenico is pleased that Nuvei has adopted the new Telium Tetra platform for deployment in Canada,” said Richard Giannini, senior vice president of product development at Ingenico Canada. “The new platform seamlessly integrates payments with easily deployable business applications. This will allow Nuvei merchants to provide additional services to their customers in the constantly evolving retail environment.”

“It’s crucial for Nuvei’s clients to have access to the latest payment technology. The Tetra certification allows us to bring a superior transaction experience to merchants and their customers,” said Philip Fayer, Nuvei’s chairman and CEO. “In addition to offering the most advanced hardware and software solutions, we are constantly enhancing the capabilities of our front-end platform, allowing us to further add value to the payments ecosystem. This not only encourages adoption of newer payment technologies in the Canadian marketplace, it’s an important driver for our reseller and integrated partnerships.”
