  • Numerous customers from the food service industry already use the solution and benefit from the convenient onboarding process via the Wirecard Checkout Portal

Wirecard, the global innovation leader for digital financial technology, is cooperating with Everesto, a delivery service management platform, to support food service merchants in expanding their core business to include delivery services. Everesto’s platform already handles thousands of transactions for restaurants of all sizes to accept orders and receive payment even before delivery has taken place. Customers can also pick up their orders at the restaurant, which strengthens out-of-home sales and is another source of revenue for restaurants in times of COVID-19. Wirecard is taking over the payment processing for transactions, thus further advancing digitalization in the retail and restaurant industries.

The offer highlights Wirecard’s commitment to helping companies master the challenges posed by COVID-19. “We are proud that, via our payment solutions, we are enabling retailers and restaurateurs to make their businesses more flexible and future-proof,” commented Alexander Hahn, Vice President Sales Retail at Wirecard. “The Everesto solution fits in very well with our COVID-19 support package. We are confident that we will be able to help many food service merchants to successfully guide their business model into the digital future.”

With Everesto, customers can conveniently order, pay and have their orders delivered to their homes. The Everesto platform is a completely digital solution: from the customer, to the restaurant operations, to the driver’s app, as well as the central point for the coordination of all orders. With its technology, Wirecard ensures that consumers can use their preferred digital payment method when ordering via Everesto.

Retailers benefit from the fast, simple and paperless onboarding process via the Wirecard Checkout Portal, with new merchant registration taking less than 10 minutes. The joint offer is aimed at the entire food service industry, caterers, restaurants, and food retailers, in Europe as well as worldwide. The solution is already available and can be used immediately.

“We are pleased to have a strong partner like Wirecard by our side. This will enable us to guarantee smooth payment transactions for all food service merchants and restaurants using Everesto,” added Martin Böhm, Managing Director of Everesto. “I am convinced that our solution will be well received by merchants and consumers alike, not only during but also after COVID-19.”
