MUNICH and BUCHAREST, Romania, November 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Carrefour Romania integrated the Romcard e-wallet in the new mobile application Carrefour Pay, available in all its Romanian network stores.
Carrefour Pay, available for both Android and iOS, allows a safe and quick payment at the cash register, only by a QR code scanning. Also, the app allows checking a product price, by scanning the barcode, and generating a fiscal invoice that can be sent on any chosen email address.
Romcard is managing an important part of the Carrefour pay application: cards and users registration, the processing of the transactions generated with the cards enrolled in the e-wallet and the users' database management, everything in a highly secured environment.
Established in 1994, Romcard, part of Provus Group, which is a subsidiary of Wirecard AG, is the first card processing service provider in Romania and the only full 3D-Secure entity in Romania, certified by both Visa and MasterCard.
"We are very delighted that Carrefour has chosen Romcard. With this, we provide the basis for state-of-the-art mobile payment solutions that will fundamentally change payment in countries like Romania", said Utku Orgendil, Managing Director of Provus Group.
Romcard e-wallet is a modern and secured solution for storing and using cards, in a certified PCI-DSS environment. The solution is very flexible and scalable and can be integrated in any cash register solution.
