Ukash, the online cash payment provider, is further growing in the Netherlands and continuing its European expansion. E-Business solutions specialist, H@ND is the latest key partner to sign up in the country, giving Dutch shoppers access to Ukash vouchers.
H@ND provides a secure and reliable 24/7 online transaction processing service, including online solutions for web shops, self-service terminals, checkout and e-vouchering, as well as prepaid stations, gift cards and loyalty systems. Processing hundreds of thousands of transactions per week across the Netherlands, H@ND strengthens Ukash's strategic position in this key market. The new solution will be available in 3,500 outlets nationwide.
David Hunter, Chief Executive Officer of Ukash explains, "Ukash offers an alternative to paying online by credit or debit card, allowing people to use cash without having to reveal their personal financial information. Through our partnership with H@ND we are offering Dutch consumers access to the convenience and security of Ukash across an additional thousand outlets nationwide.
"H@ND's expertise in the e-value transaction market makes it the perfect partner for Ukash, as we grow in the Netherlands, providing more consumers with lots of ways to pay online."
Theo Snijder, Chief Executive Officer of H@ND adds, "The growth of internet shopping and paid for online content, such as games and other services, means consumers are demanding more choice at the checkout. We already offer a range of prepaid payment methods and now Ukash allows us to deliver an online cash payment solution in the Netherlands that's secure and convenient."
Ukash codes are purchased with cash in retail outlets such as shops, petrol stations and kiosks. The unique 19 digit codes can then be used to pay directly on any of the thousands of websites that accept Ukash transactions worldwide, or loaded onto prepaid cards and e-wallets.
The maximum single value allowed is €250 and the maximum amount that can be held by an individual customer is €1,250. Both sums have equivalents in other currencies.
