Wirecard, the leading specialist for digital financial technology, and Kyivstar, (VEON’s Group subsidiary in Ukraine) launched processing services, including real-time solutions, on the VEON platform in Ukraine.
From now on, Wirecard will technically process the airtime top-up on the VEON platform in Ukraine meaning that local customers, including Kyivstar customers, will be able to upload and update their mobile payment accounts on-the-go within a few seconds.
Taras Gorkun, Head of Treasury and Mobile Financial Services at Kyivstar, states: “We are very proud that the VEON platform was launched in Ukraine recently, as it is a unique product for our customers. With Wirecard as a payment partner, we can offer our customers a state-of-the-art and real-time mobile payment experience with the possibility of registering a credit card and to top up their balance within seconds - a very important functionality for our prepaid customers - possible with one click.”
Philippe Laranjeiro, Head of Sales Digital and Telecommunications at Wirecard, adds: “Easy mobile payments are essential in the fast-growing frontier markets. With our new airtime top-up solution, customers will be able to upload money and make payments more efficiently than ever before.”
