Celebrating 40 years of innovation

On 10 June 1980, the company that would become Ingenico took its first step into an unexpected advanture. Today, it has become a global leader in seamless payments.

For its 40th anniversary, Ingenico is undertaking a review of its history not merely to take a nostalgic glance at the company’s past, but to accompany a major milestone in its growth and development.

The early years

500,000 francs and four employees…

In 1980, Ingenico could never have anticipated how its future would play out and the influence it would have in the field by revolutionizing our payment practices. Modems, magnetic stripe cards, smart cards: from its inception, the company would make the most of every technological breakthrough, offering ever more efficient payment terminals and making tremendous inroads in highly competitive emerging markets.

Our history

France’s little genius sitting on top of the world

Within just a few years, the small French company Ingenico has been transformed into a multinational.

Two important phases ensued: first an international expansion of the payment terminals market, and next came access to new markets extending beyond the physical payment function. Through a sequence of strategic buyouts, Ingenico has been able to continuously refine its path, addressing changes in payment technologies and practices.
