Xsolla, the global video game business engine, has tapped Wirecard for digital payments in Europe.
Wirecard will complement the card payments offerings of the video game business engine.
The partnership with Wirecard will enable gamers to make payments with their preferred payment methods.
Xsolla head of Payments head of Payments Anton Zelenin said: “Thanks to Wirecard, we can provide a frictionless purchasing experience on our platform so that our customers can focus on what matters most to them: the gaming experience.”
With credit card payments powered by the German payments firm, the customers of Xsolla are said to now have the ability to accept more payments worldwide and connect to more local gamers.
Wirecard VP Sales, Digital Services, Markus Fuchs said: “By connecting developers and publishers directly with gamers and influencers, Xsolla provides them with enhanced audience knowledge, brand reach and sales.
“Core to its ethos of accessibility is to accept more of players’ preferred payment methods. Considering the global nature of the gaming industry, this is something that can be a real challenge for developers, but is also something that can be conquered with the right payment partner.”
In Q1 2020, Wirecard reported a 24% year-on-year surge in consolidated revenues despite the market volatility caused by the Covid-19 crisis.
