LUXEMBOURG, September 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Cooperation with global leader in seamless payment allows easy integration of Yapital for merchants and creating more mobile payment touchpoints for customers
The Ingenico Group is opening up its network to include the first European cross-channel payment solution Yapital as a standard payment solution for its Ingenico Payment Services division working across all channels. The cooperation covers the integration of the Yapital solution into Ingenico Payment Services e-commerce platform as well as into the in-store processing platform.
In Germany, Yapital deployment will leverage on the huge terminal base operated by the platform inherited from former Easycash, as well as, in the coming months, on the Ingenico Payment Services e-commerce platform (ex ogone). The main advantage for retailers and merchants is the easy, fast and cost-effective way to integrate Yapital as a cross-channel payment solution. The cooperation with the global leader in payment services for banks, retailers and merchants marks another milestone on Yapital´s way to become available everywhere as a standard for mobile payment.
"Yapital has reached another success in teaming up with a crucial technical and sales partner to help us conquer customers' daily lives," Yapital-CEO Nils Winkler explains. "Consumers will be able to pay with their smartphone wherever they want - not just online, but at both major high-street retailers and small local businesses alike, like your local pizzeria. Partnering with the world´s largest payment acceptance network gives us excellent reach to achieve that goal."
"This partnership with Yapital illustrates Ingenico Payment Services commitment to provide multichannel and digital merchants with the most innovative responses to the changing evolution of consumers' lifestyles," comments Pierre-Antoine Vacheron, EVP Europe & Payment services, Ingenico Group. "We continue to expand the platforms inherited from ogone and easycash to set the ground for a leading cross-channel player in Europe."
The Yapital-Ingenico solution will be showcased at dmexco exposition in Cologne on September, 10-11, at the Yapital booth (Hall 7 / C050-054).
