ASCHHEIM, Germany, Feb. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Wirecard, the global innovation leader for digital financial technology, has announced its collaboration with Segmüller, one of Germany's largest furniture retailers. Thanks to Wirecard, Segmüller offers its customers the opportunity to conveniently pay invoices with their mobile devices or credit cards when they receive their delivery. Wirecard not only provides the digital payment technology, but also handles the processing of payments. Wirecard is thus driving forward the digitalization of the furniture industry and enabling Segmüller to increase customer satisfaction with more flexible payment options.
The mobile payment solution specially developed for the furniture industry is based on a combination of an app with an mPOS device that works in conjunction with mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones. With the payment app, Segmüller can now accept digital payments directly at the customer's front door. Customers can first pay a deposit on their goods in store and then use this technology to settle the remaining amount upon receipt of the delivery.
