Wirecard is collaborating with sendhybrid, a company affiliated to Österreichische Post, the Austrian postal service, which is now offering electronic post box users a convenient payment service to settle public-sector digital invoices in real time.

sendhybrid specializes in document processing and delivery in both electronic and traditional postal form. Companies, municipalities and local authorities digitally submit their outgoing mail shipments to the central hybridService portal, where documents can be processed, sent on and subsequently delivered to recipients either electronically or by post. For the most part, these documents are invoices or other documents which require a fee to be paid, such as insurance policies, for example.

The collaboration with Wirecard will allow consumers to digitally settle any invoices sent via sendhybrid in real time from now on. This digitized payment process allows any amounts to be paid quickly, conveniently and reliably in just a single click via the hybridPayLinkportal. For recipients of printed invoices, links or QR codes indicate the new digital service. The aim of the electronic post box is therefore to reduce the amount of paper in circulation for post. The integration of Wirecard’s payment services will allow all invoice recipients to pay securely online without any fuss via various payment methods.

Oliver Bernecker, Managing Director and Founder of sendhybrid: “Our intention with this new payment service is to modernize traditional postal services and offer a reliable digital alternative. Ever more companies are recognising the advantages of this and already starting to rely on the possibilities offered. In Wirecard, the experts in digital financial technology, we have found the perfect partner to further drive our digitalization strategy and expand our payment processes.”

Roland Toch, Managing Director at Wirecard CEE: “We are proud to have created a customized product for a company affiliated with Österreichische Post. We create solutions which simplify financial management processes as well as making them both quicker and more efficient for companies and end consumers alike.”
