Anybody using the new Sortimo online shop will have Wirecard’s payment solutions at their disposal. Sortimo, a manufacturer of in-vehicle equipment, load securing systems and transport solutions, is collaborating with Wirecard. From now on, German Sortimo customers can pay for their products online by credit card, SOFORT or SEPA payments. As the leading provider of payment solutions and internet technologies, Wirecard will assume responsibility for payment processing in its entirety as well as risk management.

Users from additional European countries will benefit from the collaboration of both companies in the course of the year. Eleven additional Sortimo online shops will be launched by the end of 2018 in Austria, Belgium, Spain and the UK, among others. Wirecard will offer various country-specific payment solutions. In future, for example, Belgian customers will be able to pay for their orders using Mr. Cash and Austrian customers via eps. There are also plans to set up individual online shops for Sortimo’s subsidiaries in the USA and Canada.

Marion Laewe, Vice President Sales Consumer Goods at Wirecard: “We’re pleased to have won Sortimo as a customer, because we can put to use and develop our expertise in various branches, such as international online payment processing. By offering a variety of payment solutions tailored to each individual country, we are responding to customers’ desires to be able to pay flexibly and securely online.”

Frederic Straß, Vice President International Business Development at Sortimo: “An essential criterion for us was that, by cooperating with Wirecard, we could draw upon a comprehensive offer of international payment solutions from a single source. In the long term, we would additionally like to create special offers for our customers using special vouchers or gift cards. Wirecard can also support us with this. We have found our dream partner in the field of international online payment processing.”
