LUXEMBOURG and ESCHBORN, Germany, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Leading payment provider and European cross-channel payment work together/ Yapital becomes the first mobile payment method to be incorporated into the standard sales portfolio of a German acquirer
A first in the payment sector: ConCardis, the leading provider of cashless transactions, has adopted Yapital into its range of services, making it available for both its new and existing customers. Yapital's cross-channel payment is the first mobile payment method for stationary businesses being integrated in the standard marketing portfolio of a German acquirer.
As of now, retailers using ConCardis to process their transactions can integrate Yapital into their available payment methods completely hassle-free. In doing so, they'll offer their customers a modern payment option, which can be completed using just a smartphone.
As the leading European specialist in processing cashless payments, ConCardis provides its services to around 400,000 outlets, including retailers in Germany, the Benelux countries and an increasing number of other European countries.
"For Yapital, this collaboration is another important step towards reaching a standard at POS", explains Nils Winkler, Chairman of the Board at Yapital. "With ConCardis we have gained an excellent partner that has been successful in the market for 30 years, and not without reason, and is continuing to grow. They are open to new technologies, providing the time is right, and it can offer much added value to the business. This is the case with Yapital."
Rainer Sureth, Chief Executive Officer at ConCardis GmbH, adds: "Our customers at home and abroad know that they have an experienced partner for all the services that relate to payment transactions. But we also have an eye on the future and that is why we are pleased to be adding Yapital to our portfolio. This payment method is not yet a standard at the checkouts, but it soon will be."
