LUXEMBOURG, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Soon prelado customers will be able to top up their prepaid mobile phones by using the new cross-channel payment provider Yapital
A few weeks before its launch, Yapital, the first European cross-channel payment provider, has announced a cooperation with the Peaches Group. This allows Yapital, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Otto Group, to gain access to another interesting market: the prepaid-service platform prelado of the Peaches Group located in Wiesbaden enables customers of over 20 German mobile phone providers to display their prepaid balance free of charge and to top it up online in real time.
The service, which allows for the quick and easy top-up of prepaid mobile phone credit via app, mobile web, and internet has been available in Germany since November, 2012. Through the integration of Yapital, which is planned to take place in the near future, prelado will gain a new, innovative payment method for its online payment mix. In future, prelado customers will be able to quickly, easily and securely top up their credit using Yapital.
"Integration with such an innovative service as prelado has the potential to open up a very interesting new customer base for Yapital," explains Nils Winkler, Chairman of the Board of Yapital. "With this, we have gained another important partner for our first real European cross-channel payment solution."
"Here at Peaches, we are always focused on the benefits for our users - and this is the same for Yapital. This makes Yapital the perfect addition to our online payment mix," adds Reinhold M. Sigler, Chief Executive Officer of the Peaches Group (PEACHES mobile GmbH, PEACHES Systems GmbH, REA MOBILE GmbH). Andreas Schulz, SVP Sales & Payments of the Peaches Group, adds: "We want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to top up their prepaid mobile phone credits. With Yapital, we can offer them an additional, particularly straightforward way to do this. Therefore we will gradually expand our cooperation, also beyond the German market."
