Germany-based global provider of digital payments and commerce solutions Wirecard announced on Monday it has partnered with German furniture retailer, Segmüller, to provide a mobile payment solution. Through the partnership, Segmüller now offers its customers the opportunity to pay invoices with their mobile devices or credit cards when they receive their delivery.
“The mobile payment solution specially developed for the furniture industry is based on a combination of an app with an mPOS device that works in conjunction with mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones. With the payment app, Segmüller can now accept digital payments directly at the customer’s front door. Customers can first pay a deposit on their goods in store and then use this technology to settle the remaining amount upon receipt of the delivery.”
Speaking about the partnership, Christian Reindl, Executive Vice President Sales Consumer Goods at Wirecard, added:
“We are pleased to be able to support Segmüller in digitizing their payment processes and thus increasing customer satisfaction. With the development of our payment app, we have actively responded to the trend that consumers want an increasingly seamless payment experience – the mobile payment solution is optimally tailored to the delivery model.”
