Be it credit, debit or other alternative payment methods, our customers will be able to enjoy a peaceful and safer shopping experience when shopping online.”
Wirecard regional managing director Jeffry Ho added: “One of the challenges businesses with regional presence face is in trying to tie their operations across various markets together. With our technology and expertise, what we at Wirecard can do to is help businesses like Ikea focus on what they do best.
“For Ikea, that is about delivering great home and furnishing experiences while we support them in offering seamless and flexible payment experiences to fully digitise their payment processes. We are excited to bring these possibilities live to online stores in Ikea Malaysia, and look forward to extending the option to a wider segment of Ikea shoppers across Southeast Asia in the coming months.”
The service by Wirecard is based on a single integration point for all payment methods across the region, enabling Ikea Southeast Asia to profit from simplified integration and faster rollout.
In addition, the system offers real-time checks enabling Ikea Southeast Asia the ability to ensure payments are timely made while ensuring fraud prevention.
