Worldline, Myra, Team Up to Provide Better Hospitality Payments


European payments services company Worldline is working with Myra, a maker of self-check-in technology, to develop a payment solution for the hospitality sector.

As the company said in a news release Tuesday (May 3), the solution will be showcased via a pilot project with Leonardo Hotels, which owns more than 200 properties in 90 countries.

“The collaboration will see MYRA’s kiosks working alongside Worldline’s unattended payment terminals and acquiring services to help ensure every guest has the best payment experience,” the release said. “After the current hotel pilot with Leonardo, the new solution will ultimately be available and rolled out across more than 10 European markets.”

Myra and Worldline have worked together on various projects for the last two years. The companies say the goal of their latest collaboration is to make sure customers only have to interact with a single self-service payment station and one solution provider.

“A key element in the collaboration is the need for an all-in-one payment terminal for the MYRA self-service kiosks,” the release said. “Worldline’s VALINA unattended terminal meets this requirement and can be seamlessly integrated into MYRA kiosks.”

From there, UniCredit can offer account information services (AIS), payment initiation services (PIS) and other business opportunities to its clients along with Worldline’s.

UniCredit has used Worldline’s Open Banking TPP service since 2020 and has now agreed to extend the partnership for two more years.
