There has been an establishment of contactless payment in Germany only recently within a very short period of time, which was not expected to happen in such a short time span. With this article, we want to describe the reasons for this development and give an outlook on how the situation could continue to develop.
Based on the innovations in Instant Payment, a large German bank questioned how this payment method could be implemented within its own house and made available for its customers. SHC’s support consisted of an analysis of Instant Payment, as well as a joint workshop to develop options and chances.
A major German travel and logistic company redesigned its payment transactions completely. This redesign was part of the distribution channels’ restructuring process of the IT-infrastructure within the group. The selection and implementation of a payment gateway to standardise payment transaction interfaces formed part of this task. Within the context of an EU-tendering procedure, SHC significantly supported this tendering.
