Online-merchants working with the Magento Community Platform can now integrate the new cross-channel-payment solution, Yapital, as a means of payment. This is due to a free plug-in, which can be downloaded from the Magento Connect marketplace, and is straightforward to install.
For customers, it will be immediately possible to pay either with their smartphones, by scanning a QR-code with their Yapital App and confirming the purchase, or by entering their Yapital credentials at the online checkout.
The target groups of the eCommerce software-specialist Magento are a large share of small and medium sized merchants, as well as multi-channel and online-merchants with operations on a global scale. Merchants themselves will benefit from the first European cross-channel payment system, as well as the guaranteed real-time-transactions.
“Yapital is the straightforward payment solution for all occasions,” says Nils Winkler, Chairman of the Board of Yapital. “We are very pleased that we are now able to allow many more retailers to offer Yapital as a means of payment to their customers – and integration really couldn’t be easier than with a free plug-in on the Magento Community Platform.”
