Local payment at the heart of our business

Preludd is an independent payment platform. In France, a payment terminal needs an electronic payment gateway to connect to the CB banking network and transmit the payments collected by merchants on a daily basis. Our job is to provide this link between the terminal and the banks and to secure the connections.  We make sure that all the data collected by the SoftPOS terminals is transmitted to the banking network, securely and without intrusion, in order to protect the entire system.

Little known to the general public, we are not visible on a payment terminal. Our solutions are distributed through our network of professional electronic banking customers and banks who provide merchants with a global payment solution, including flows.

Every day tens of thousands of retailers all over France use our services. Chances are you regularly make card payments on a payment terminal connected to Preludd Payment Services.
