Mammut strengthens e-commerce hand
Wirecard payment solutions deal extended
Mammut continues to invest in its e-commerce offering, expanding its partnership with payment processing firm Wirecard in the US.
As part of the deal, Wirecard will offer US customers of Mammut’s online shop payments via credit cards commonly used in the US such as Visa and Mastercard, while an expansion to the offering is also already in the pipeline.
Mammut turned to Wirecard, the digital financial technology specialists, back in 2014 to handle multichannel payment processing. Since then, Wirecard has been responsible for e-commerce and POS payment processing in Mammut’s core markets of Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the UK.
It also uses a customised version of Wirecard’s risk management system FPS (Fraud Prevention Suite). The system identifies data and behaviour patterns in real time and uses machine learning and artificial intelligence in order to effectively prevent fraud and ensure maximum security for all payment methods on offer.
Florian Held, head of E-commerce at Mammut, said: “Mammut has stood for optimum outdoor quality and pioneering innovation for more than 155 years – and it is on this basis that we will continue to grow. With Wirecard as a payment partner, we now offer customers secure and efficient payment solutions around the world – this means that Wirecard plays a key role in our digitalisation process.”
