BOI Payment Acceptance now provides card payment technology to all of Iceland’s Irish outlets. BOIPA completed the installation across all 27 Iceland Ireland outlets in a single day, ensuring no loss of service.

Formed in 1970, and initially specializing in frozen food products, Iceland now has about 1,000 stores throughout the UK and Europe, with a presence in Ireland since 1996.

Seamless installation across all Irish branches

Conor Quirke, General Manager at BOIPA, felt the announcement was another step in the right direction for the payment services provider as they make a defined march into the supermarket retail sector as an exclusive payments supplier to Iceland. 

“We are delighted to have recently won the contract to provide card payments technology across all of Iceland’s 27 outlets in the Republic of Ireland. The grocery market in Ireland is worth c.€13b annually and this deal represents a milestone for us in becoming the exclusive payments supplier to a national grocery retailer. We look forward to building on this and to supporting Iceland as they grow their business,” reflected Conor Quirke, BOIPA General Manager.

For Carol Macartney, Iceland Ireland’s Managing Director, it was an easy decision to choose BOIPA given their experience installing payment solutions without any difficulty across a number of locations. 

“Having recently acquired the 27 Iceland Ireland stores and returning them to 100% Irish ownership, this presented the opportunity for us to team up with a local partner in Ireland. We decided to move all of our payments technology to BOI Payments Acceptance. From the outset BOIPA have been exceptional to deal with and managed to seamlessly install all 27 nationwide Iceland outlets in a single day with no loss of service. We are delighted with the support from the local team and look forward to a successful partnership as we grow the business in Ireland.”
