Germany’s Wirecard and Krones have teamed, a leading packaging and bottling machine manufacturer, in the development of its e-commerce strategy with integrated payment solutions. The B2B online shop for small and replacement parts, Krones.shop, started in Germany and is now available in a further eight countries.
The global, listed company currently has over 80 sales offices and service branches, with its sights now set on global expansion after initially increasing its European operations.
Krones already generates around 90 percent of its sales abroad.
The Krones e-business portal offers B2B customers an extensive portfolio of more than 900,000 products, from replacement parts to upgrades, training courses, second-hand machines and services. The payment integration via the Wirecard checkout solution ensures that credit card payment is easy and convenient.
The Wirecard Bank handles acquiring processes. The Fraud Prevention Suite and device fingerprinting ensure that payment processing is secure and offers protection against payment defaults. Furthermore, a mobile-configured website is available, which means that the online shop is accessible from all end devices.
