- Global acquiring via the Wirecard Bank
The portfolio of the Wirecard Group now includes another prominent e-Commerce company, FLYERALARM, the leading B2B online printer in Europe. The payment processor will be handling all global credit card acceptance of Visa and MasterCard payments from now on. A further expansion of the collaboration is also planned.
FLYERALARM has been steadily driving forward its European expansion since 2004. In addition to the domestic market of Germany, the company already has stores in Austria, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the UK. The online printer recently also opened in Belgium and Switzerland. Further market launches are planned for 2015.
Markus Schmedtmann, CEO of FLYERALARM: "With 15,000 orders each day, we are one of the biggest e-Commerce companies in Europe and are investing heavily in our internationalisation. This was also the decisive factor for entering into a partnership with such a global, reliable payment provider as Wirecard."
"FLYERALARM is continually expanding its range of print and marketing services. Our unique selling point is the combination of software and banking services, which means we can offer FLYERALARM a comprehensive portfolio from a single source. In addition to online payment processing, this also includes issuing customer cards and gift cards featuring a company's own design, or providing payment terminals," says Christa Wagner, Executive Vice President Sales Consumer Goods at Wirecard.
