LUXEMBOURG, August 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Customers can now pay at the specialist denim retailer's online shop using the new cross-channel payment system
Buying jeans made easy: Customers can now pay at the online checkout of his-jeans.de very easily - and in real time - using the new Yapital cross-channel payment system simply by scanning a QR code with the Yapital app on their smartphone. Or alternatively by entering their Yapital username and password.
Through its cooperation with H.I.S. Textil GmbH - the company behind one of the most established brands of jeans - shortly after its launch, Yapital is once again significantly increasing its market relevance: part of a strategy that includes numerous partnerships with online as well as over-the-counter and multichannel retailers before the end of the year.
"The cooperation with H.I.S. is another important step for us towards our goal of achieving a high level of visibility on the market within a short time-frame," says Nils Winkler, Chairman of the Board of Yapital. "H.I.S. is a very popular brand and jeans are an indispensable part of everyday life for many people. And it is here, into the everyday lives of consumers, that we want to bring Yapital."
Wolfgang Müller-Tonder, CEO of H.I.S Textil GmbH, adds: "Yapital makes secure payments faster and more straightforward - something that goes down very well with our customers. However, it also offers solid benefits to retailers, such as transactions in real time, a payment guarantee and lower costs for processing payments. The combined benefits to consumers and retailers make Yapital a truly pioneering innovation in our view and we are pleased to be on board from the start."
