Wirecard, Lekkerland Enable Cash Payments for Online Purchases

Feb. 21, 2012

Wirecard Group, a German electronic payment and risk management provider, has expanded an existing partnership with gas station supplier Lekkerland AG. The companies, along with payments provider EZV Gesellschaft für Zahlungssysteme mbH, are marketing BarPay, an alternative payment method that lets consumers make purchases online and pay for them using cash at retail locations. Wirecard will offer BarPay to its e-commerce clients, whose customers will have the option of paying cash for online purchases as filling station clients of Lekkerland—which supplies German filling stations with drinks, snacks, tobacco goods, prepaid products and other non-food articles. “Our national infrastructure ensures that almost all consumers can reach one of our BarPay acceptance agents within a maximum of ten minutes,” said Jonny Natelberg, executive vice president with Lekkerland GmbH & Co. KG. “The flexible opening hours that petrol stations offer makes this even more user friendly.” Consumers who choose BarPay in a Website’s shopping cart will be required to pay for their purchase at one of 18,000 filling stations serviced by Lekkerland within a certain period of time.
