Wirecard AG was commissioned to process credit card payments for the new online shop launched in November by the retail organization chain Lidl.
The Lidl online shop represents a further development of the stationary Lidl offering on the Internet. Schwarz E-Commerce GmbH & Co. KG from Neckarsulm - like Lidl, a member of the Schwarz group of companies - presents new special offers each week on www.lidl-shop.de, ranging from household goods, tools and toys to winter sport articles. In implementing the project, a great deal of importance was assigned to establishing the shop from the very beginning on a technologically sophisticated level and simultaneously exploiting the existing core structures of the Schwarz Group.
"We opted in favor of Wirecard AG as a payment services provider because of their compelling complete package of 'acquiring and transaction processing services from a single source' and their technical expertise and consultancy skills," explains a spokesman for the company. "As regards to the future development of the shop, it is particularly important for us to cooperate with a partner who has an international presence, both in the field of payments and in risk management services."
"In realizing the Lidl shop solution we contributed right from the outset with our consultancy experience in the fields of payment and risk management processes. We are pleased to be able to assist the Schwarz eCommerce team in the course of its future expansion," says Christa Wagner, Head of Key Account Management Retailservices at Wirecard AG.
