Giropay Chosen for DHL Checkout

Dec. 12, 2011

DHL Checkout customers now can make their online purchases with giropay. The German online payment service joins a number of other payment options available at DHL Checkout, the order processing solution from Deutsche Post DHL that is not only integrated into its own online shopping portal——but also can be integrated into any Web shop. “Ensuring secure online transactions is our highest priority,” says Andrej Busch, CEO of DHL Parcel Germany. “And, giropay is the established, secure online payment system for numerous German banks, so it was the logical choice for us to integrate giropay into our DHL Checkout and offer it to our customers as an additional method of payment.” Deutsche Post DHL launched DHL Checkout in May 2011. giropay is a joint project of German retail bank Deutsche Postbank, the Sparkassen financial group and the IT departments of the Volksbanks and Raiffeisen banks.
