Staxter, a Germany-based technology company, has teamed up with Wirecard to introduce new mobile ecosystem for e-commerce and value-added services.
Wirecard will act as an acquirer enabling the German firm to accept credit cards and alternative payment methods within the app.
To be soon launched in Germany and UK, the Staxter app will offer end customers a digital ecosystem to buy and gift vouchers, coupons and online tickets without service fees.
“In addition, they can do real-time top ups and soon remittances for prepaid mobile accounts worldwide,” according to a press statement.
Staxter founder and CEO Mark Rosiefsky said: “Wirecard offers well-thought-out mobile payment solutions. This is a significant factor behind our further expansion in the field of in-app payment, making Wirecard our ideal partner for our new digital ecosystem.”
Commenting on the launch, Wirecard head of sales telecommunications Philippe Laranjeiro added: “With our expertise, we want to support innovative digital solutions like Staxter. As their payment partner, we are looking forward to extending our collaboration and to supporting them to tap into new business areas from e-commerce to digital banking.”
