Wirecard and Burda Digital conclude umbrella agreement for payment services
Wirecard AG has gained Burda Digital GmbH, a Hubert Burda Media company, as customer.
The umbrella agreement is also valid for its eCommerce holdings, which include both online retail as well as digital services. The agreement spans credit card acceptance (acquiring), provided by Wirecard Bank AG, as well as an option to use additional payment methods. As a result, the companies in the Burda Digital division can use Wirecard’s services at the agreed framework conditions.
Dr. Jörg Lübcke, managing director with Burda Digital GmbH commented: “We are very pleased that we can provide the Burda Digital companies with a highly competent partner in order to efficiently bundle and support the eCommerce activities in our highly varied divisions when it comes to payments.”
“The divisions of Burda Digital and Wirecard complement each other perfectly. Framework conditions mean that we can also open up our extensive portfolio of solutions for B2C payment services to the many Burda Digital companies,” said Christa Wagner, Executive Vice President Sales Consumer Goods with Wirecard.
