Wirecard, the global innovation leader for digital financial technology, and the ALDI Nord and ALDI SÜD Groups have signed an MOU and plan to work together in the area of cashless payments.

Within the scope of the partnership, Wirecard will process all credit card and international debit card payments at all ALDI stores in Germany. The possibility of expanding the cooperation is also being considered.

“Wirecard and ALDI share a common vision of making lasting improvements to the customer experience. In the retail sector, optimal payment processes, which we can enable, play a key role in this. We are therefore very pleased to be working with ALDI and developing our partnership in the future,” said Christian Reindl, EVP Retail & Consumer Goods at Wirecard.
