Wirecard Enables E-Commerce Channel For IKEA Thailand’s Online Store

Germany-based global provider of digital payments and commerce solutions Wirecard announced this week it is now enabling the e-commerce channel for the IKEA Thailand’s online store. Wirecard reported that through the partnership, it ensures “smooth” digital payment transactions for IKEA Thailand and enables customers to conveniently order and pay for their purchases, and have them either delivered or collect them at IKEA stores

While sharing more details about the partnership, Koen Besteman, Head of E-Commerce at IKEA Southeast Asia, stated:

“With the opening of our online store in Thailand, we are bringing affordable, beautiful home furnishing solutions to people in all corners of the country. Now, people who live hundreds of kilometres from our big, blue-box stores in Bangkok can find inspiration on our website, shop for any of the 8,000+ products in our range, order, pay and arrange for delivery.”

Jeffry Ho, Regional Managing Director at Wirecard, also commented:

“As innovation and technology change customers’ expectations and shape the way people shop, it is crucial for businesses to transform to meet the needs of the new generation of tech-savvy shoppers. IKEA Thailand has reacted to this demand, and we are proud to be their digital payment partner of choice. Through this cooperation, we are bringing our Unified Commerce shopping experience to even more customers worldwide.”

Wirecard further explained that the announcement is a result of a partnership between Wirecard and Ikano, owner and operator of IKEA stores in Southeast Asia. The company added:

With Wirecard’s business expansion into the Thai market, merchants can successfully launch their e-commerce business that connects to the Wirecard platform, while providing a seamless and fuss-free payment experience for consumers. In addition to Thailand, Wirecard already provides digital payments services for IKEA online stores in Singapore and Malaysia.”
