- Tailor-made payment solutions for DaWanda Shop retailers
- Fast online configuration with payplugger
DaWanda GmbH, the company that owns the international online marketplace for handmade products and design of the same name, is now working with Wirecard in the field of payment processing. Wirecard has simplified the registration and use of different payment methods for DaWanda Shop retailers via payplugger. The marketplace is using the new payment portal as a co-branding solution.
The version of payplugger adapted for DaWanda allows quick and easy online setup under favourable conditions for the whole process until contract conclusion without a change in media. Once registered, DaWanda Shop retailers can take payments via their DaWanda Shop within 48 hours. A range of national and international payment solutions are available. Supplementary solutions for risk management round off the functions of payplugger. More than 230,000 manufacturers currently sell their products via Shops on http://www.dawanda.com. The marketplace is available in seven different languages.
"With payplugger, the online setup of a personal payment page is as quick as opening a Shop on our marketplace. We chose the easy and flexible solution offered by Wirecard because it perfectly complements (or: addresses) our fundamental principle of being able to complete everything online, regardless of the device used," says Michael Pütz, founder and Managing Director of DaWanda. "We were not only convinced by the international range of payment methods but also the long-standing e-Commerce expertise of Wirecard."
Christian Reindl, Executive Vice President Sales Consumer Goods at Wirecard, comments: "We are delighted to be bringing payplugger onto the market with DaWanda. With our partner concept, we are supporting marketplaces with a standardised, yet tailored PCI-certified service which supports a quick, individualised market access to sellers."
Wirecard offers its new payplugger payment portal to partners and resellers as part of a flexible partner concept and co-branded solution. Small and medium-sized Shop retailers wishing to use this solution for their payment processing independently of marketplaces can access the online configurator at http://www.payplugger.com.
