Ingenico Group


Ingenico Group provides merchants with a comprehensive and innovative range of services and solutions that eliminate payment complexity and make purchasing quick, seamless and secure for consumers, whatever the sales channel or payment method.

Our ambition is to facilitate merchants’ transition to multi-channel sales through our comprehensive range of smart terminals, payment services and mobile solutions, covering in-store, online and mobile channels on a global scale. Our innovative and reliable solutions let merchants secure the sale as soon as the consumer has made their purchase decision, and enhance consumer experience.

Our customers benefit from the depth and breadth of our large in-store and online acceptance network, which combines global expertise with local solutions. We connect retailers to all financial institutions and deliver access to the widest portfolio of local, national, international and alternative payment methods.

The business has enjoyed nearly 40 years of success in Fife and is a proud, significant employer in the area. With revenues of over £100million and increasing employee numbers, now around 500 members of staff, the Fife organisation, which serves the UK and the Nordics, has become one of the strongest performing divisions in Ingenico.

Ingenico is dedicated to tackling the skills shortage in the payments industry, both internally through knowledge sharing, and externally via our key role in Scotland’s first Fintech Skills Academy.
