WORLDLINE Description of the Group’s three Business Lines services

Omni-channel payment C.1.1.3 acceptance

provides a dynamic choice of acquirer or payment scheme helping merchants in optimizing financial conditions.

White Label service for banks, acquirers and PSP’s The world of web merchants is getting more complex as the number of available payment methods is rapidly increasing. Worldline assists banks, acquirers and payment service providers to make the lives of their merchants easier. Some of our services are white labelled, which allows clients to respond rapidly to the needs of their customers, while maintaining their brand’s position in the market. Worldline White Label PSP solution provides an easy way to become a payment service provider. It relieves its partners from practical and financial burdens connected to starting from scratch and allows them to remain focused on their primary commercial activities, such as marketing and sales. Merchant aggregator In the domain of merchant aggregation (so called super merchant constructions and sub merchant constructions), Worldline offers Merchant Aggregator services leveraging on its bank relationships. Worldline developed its offering based on two models, strongly differentiating from competition: Core aggregation (Worldline acts as a Payment Facilitator ● undertaking end-to-end aggregation from merchant sourcing, contracts, risk underwriting, processing of transactions with schemes along with settlement and payment); Hybrid aggregation (Worldline acts as a Technology ● Enabler for merchants - sourcing merchants, executing tripartite agreement with merchants and underwriting risk, processing transactions through schemes and partner banks settling merchant payments). Digital Retail C.1.1.4 Through Digital Retail, Worldline aims to convert the neutral to negative perception generally associated with payments into a positive one by providing value-added services which enhance the overall customer experience. Worldline is present in every step of the value-chain and assists B2B and B2C merchants in placing their customers in the center of their attention Worldline’s Digital Retail division combines: Digital Retail offerings, covering the full digital commerce ● lifecycle for merchants starting with the self-onboarding and following their lifecycle with self-service on the MyPortal platform; Value added services, such as Private Label Cards, Loyalty ● Services, Merchant Loan and Merchant Apps on YUMi and Valina terminals.
