Computop makes wero available for merchants

June 26, 2024

Wero, the new European payment solution developed by the European Payment Initiative (EPI) will be available to Computop customers from the moment it launches e-commerce payment in mid-2025. Computop, the leading payment service provider, will integrate the payment method, which is based on real-time credit transfers (SEPA Instant Payments), in Q4 2024. While payments between individuals will be available in 2024, online retailers will be able to offer wero payments by mid-2025.

Stephan Kück, Managing Director of Computop, emphasises: ‘With the integration of wero, Computop is once again involved in the market launch of innovative payment methods and is therefore securing a competitive advantage for its merchants. As EPI will be structured as a four-parties scheme that is similar to credit card payments, merchants benefit in particular from the multi-acquirer concept of our payment platform. Another strong advantage is the unique merchant integration for multi-country merchants’.

Martina Weimert, CEO of EPI: ‘Our collaboration with Computop marks the beginning of our e-commerce journey with wero, which will complete the payment scheme to be offered by the solution in the future. We’re pleased of this first agreement that will allow merchants to project themselves with a new payment scheme that fits their needs and the customer ones of easiness, security, service-offering and cost-effectiveness for both parties. We’re happy that Computop joins us empowering our European solution in our journey of setting up a real alternative to international solutions. Many more steps to follow…!’.
