Judopay and Mastercard have announced that together they will enable The Pharmacy Centre to accept payments through Judopay’s digital solution.
Through the partnership, The Pharmacy Centre will be able to process secure payments using Judopay’s PaybyLink solution. The aim is to promote greater inclusion and flexibility during the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak, ensuring people have access to essentials.
Oliver Harris, Director at The Pharmacy Centre, said: “We believe that it’s imperative the general public, particularly the most vulnerable, get the essential medical supplies they need without risk of infection when making payments.
“This partnership enables pharmacies to provide services online and reach a wider audience, while also innovating and streamlining workflows.”
The announcement comes as the pandemic has made it difficult for those self-isolating to access medical supplies. Judopay and Mastercard hope that the collaboration will reduce the need for customers to physically visit pharmacies, helping to slow down the spread of infection.
Enabling access to medical essentials
As part of the project, Judopay is providing a set-up service for The Pharmacy Centre to bring its solutions to the front line of prescription and medical distribution.
The company is also working on expanding these capabilities into a full online e-commerce suite for Pharmacies.
Jeremy Nicholds, Judopay CEO, said: “Our partnership with The Pharmacy Centre is solving a clear challenge in the market. It is removing any potential risk of infection when customers are purchasing their essential medical goods. Judopay is leading the way with The Pharmacy Centre to enable pharmacies of all sizes to scale and innovate online.”
Furthermore, Mastercard is powering Judopay’s PaybyLink, enabling customers to buy essentials online and have them delivered.
Scott Abrahams, SVP of Business Development and Fintech at Mastercard, said: “It’s great to see how businesses are innovating to better serve the needs of their customers during this pandemic. We’re proud to be partnering with Judopay and The Pharmacy Centre to ensure UK customers can access pharmacy supplies.”
