Wirecard AG is expanding its collaboration with the Detmold-based Wortmann Group, the biggest shoe manufacturer in Europe and market leader for fashionable women’s shoes: from now on, the payment specialist will handle payment processing as well as risk management for the Tamaris brand’s online shop in 16 European countries. The global payment provider is therefore enabling Tamaris customers to pay for their products online using Visa, MasterCard or PayPal.

This supplements Wirecard’s current cooperation with the Wortmann Group: Wirecard has already been responsible for payment processing for Tamaris’ German, Austrian and French online shops.

Marion Laewe, Vice President Sales Consumer Goods at Wirecard AG: “We are delighted to use our country-specific payment solutions to support the Wortmann Group during their planned globalisation and expand our collaboration to include a further 13 countries. We are proud to have been able to convince Tamaris once again of our global expertise and to be able to support further technical implementation of their omnichannel strategy.”

Wortmann Group collections are sold globally in 70 countries and in more than 15,000 shoe shops. The Tamaris brand is particularly successful, and has now developed its e-commerce business across Europe. Since November 2016, customers in 16 European countries have been able to choose from a wide range of women’s shoes, bags and accessories online and pay for them conveniently.
