Lekkerland and Wirecard Bank expand their strategic alliance
New payment method for eCommerce - pay cash online
Munich-based Wirecard Bank AG, a Wirecard Group company, and Lekkerland AG & Co. KG, Frechen, are expanding their existing strategic alliance for prepaid products and online payment processing.
Both companies have developed a new payment method for the German market together with Berlin-based EZV Gesellschaft für Zahlungssysteme mbH, to allow cash payments for products ordered online. “BarPay” allows customers to order goods or services on the Internet and to pay for these in cash with immediate effect at 18,000 petrol stations, shops and kiosks in the Lekkerland network in Germany.
BarPay is a payment method for consumers that do not have access to credit cards or who have reservations about payment methods such as prepayment. Companies who want to cut their cash on delivery or debt collection costs, and at the same time increase their conversion rates, can benefit from BarPay.
“Our national infrastructure ensures that almost all consumers can reach one of our BarPay acceptance agents within a maximum of ten minutes. The flexible opening hours that petrol stations offer makes this even more user friendly,” commented Jonny Natelberg, Executive Vice President with Lekkerland GmbH & Co. KG.
Oliver Bellenhaus, Wirecard Bank’s chief representative said: “I am convinced that we will also meet with great interest for this payment method from many of the Wirecard Group’s trade customers.”
