LUXEMBOURG, June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Yapital, the first European provider of cross-channel payment services, has announced, just a few weeks before it launches operations, that it has entered into a close partnership with Computop, a leading global payment service provider (PSP). Through this first collaboration with a PSP, the wholly-owned subsidiary of the Otto Group has gained further access to a large number of end customers: Computop is the technical service provider in the partnership and makes it possible for large, international companies in particular to achieve smooth and secure handling of their e-commerce payment processes.
With the inclusion of Yapital, Computop is opening up additional target groups to its customers. In order to ensure that retailers can be involved right from the start, the payment service provider Yapital has already integrated Paygate into its payment platform. The interfaces for all widely-used shop solutions, such as Demandware, hybris, Magento and Oxid, are also currently being augmented for Yapital. Computop customers will be able to quickly and easily incorporate Yapital into their lists of payment options.
"Yapital is the first genuine cross-channel payment solution to be launched in the European market," explains Nils Winkler, Chairman of the Board at Yapital. "Anyone introducing something really new, as we are doing, has to not only accommodate end customers in as many places as possible right from the very start, but also particularly involve them via the channel provided by trusted - i.e. large - companies. To achieve this goal, the partnership with Computop is an important step."
Stephan Kück, Managing Director of Computop, adds: "The cross-channel payment solution from Yapital fits perfectly with our strategy of quickly making major payment platforms available to our customers. And in this case it isn't just a matter of increasing sales opportunities for our customers by providing an additional attractive payment method: Yapital is also of particular interest to all the numerous multi-channel retailers amongst our customers, as it functions easily and securely on all channels."
The collaboration between Yapital and Computop begins with immediate effect in Luxembourg and in the DACH (Germany/Austria/Switzerland) region and will gradually be rolled out in other European markets.
