Wirecard, the global innovation leader for digital financial technology, today announced a new strategic partnership with renowned Hungarian e-commerce agency UNAS to offer Wirecard’s payment solutions to its almost 5000 merchants. Through the agreement, Wirecard will be integrated as payment service provider (PSP) for UNAS. As a result, merchants can leverage on Wirecard’s payment solutions for their online shop.
Based in Sopron, Hungary, UNAS empowers all kinds of merchants, ranging from cars to furniture, in the region to move their businesses online through its powerful e-commerce site development tools. Through a unique subscription model, businesses get a multitude of professional, built-in features and integrations without the capital expenditure. These include all the necessary functions for the operation of a successful e-commerce site in 2020: persuasive marketing options, shopping incentives, social media tie-ins and a wealth of different payment options.
Today, an e-commerce site’s success depends on ensuring that customers can use their preferred means of payment and that their checkout experience is seamless. When a merchant chooses Wirecard as their PSP, they benefit from: acceptance of all major payment methods, an easy integration, integrated fraud protection, and additional banking services.
“We open up a whole new world to legacy businesses struggling to survive through traditional retail methods alone. With our solutions, merchants of any size and industry can launch their online shop and become operational in minutes,” explained Gáll T. Barna, Business Development Manager at UNAS. “Key to these merchants being able to compete on a global footing, is the ability to ensure a smooth and frictionless payment experience for all. Wirecard provides the most comprehensive payment technology on the market so was an obvious choice as a PSP integration partner.”
UNAS is a true visionary. It was the first to introduce the concept of an e-commerce site as a service to the Hungarian market and now hosts one-in-five of all Hungarian online stores. Since inception, 27 million customers have bought from the e-commerce sites it hosts.
“Having Wirecard as a payment service provider adds real intrinsic value for the merchants UNAS work with. Through this agreement, they can implement the payment options demanded by their customers. Whether they are big global enterprises, or traditional family-run micro-businesses, they get the most advanced payment system at their fingertips,” added Roland Toch, Managing Director Central Eastern Europe at Wirecard.
