Worldline [Euronext: WLN], the European market leader in payment and transaction services,has successfully delivered the first UK unattended VALINA payment terminal, the world’s first all-in-one Android-based payment terminal for contactless, chip and mag stripe transactions.
In partnership with K6 Design Group, Jofemar and SV365 Technologies, customers of the world’s premier jeweler and specialty retailer can now purchase the new Tiffany perfume from a luxury vending machine at Tiffany & Co in its new boutique in Covent Garden London using a quick and easy chip and pin transaction.
Founded in New York in 1837, Tiffany & Co. is the world’s premier jeweler and American house of design. Its London boutique features a fragrance kiosk from which customers can now – thanks to the introduction of Worldline’s VALINA – purchase luxury goods through any form of payment.
Tiffany & Co.’s new flagship outlet opened in early July, offering an innovative retail experience, complete with contemporary and unique design features to encourage creative interaction and play. The boutique features Tiffany Blue® wooden crates displaying whimsical accessories, a #MakeItTiffanypersonalisation bar, and a one-of-a-kind Tiffany fragrance vending machine.

Our VALINA at Tiffany & Co London is the first ever self-service full touch Android payment terminal at the UK. In the future we aim to extend this concept into other high value retail environments with Worldline being the leader for self-service payment terminals.”
Worldline’s VALINA is the world’s first Android-based all-in-one payment terminal for contactless, chip and mag stripe transactions. It fits any parking machine, petrol station or other EVA-compliant terminal, making it easy for merchants to use value-added business applications, such as NFC loyalty, couponing, and wallets.
