Germany’s Rakuten Deutschland, the eponymous e-commerce platform, is gearing-up to add new payment methods via Wirecard. Rakuten Deutschland is a subsidiary of the Japanese platform Rakuten and is a shop software for merchants and a marketplace for end customers in a single solution which also handles payment processing.
More than 7,000 suppliers currently use the e-commerce platform to sell over 22 million products in Germany. The marketplace operator assumes responsibility for the whole process for all connected merchants, from receipt of order to payment.
