Payment Orchestration Embraces Conscious Spending
The industry leading payment orchestration platform, IXOPAY has partnered with Aplauz, the go-to payment method for conscious spending.
The strategic partnership will see IXOPAY and Aplauz provide clients with a payment solution that enables them to make every payment a conscious choice. It is also an opportunity for online merchants to reach new and previously untapped audiences via traditional brick and mortar stores where Aplauz vouchers can be purchased.
As a best-of-breed payment orchestration platform, IXOPAY’s architecture gives merchants complete control of their payments by providing the best payments processing options per country, intelligent routing, cascading, and unparalleled risk management function. From just one API, users benefit from simplified integration of acquirers, payment service providers, and risk service providers. It also has state-of-the-art centralized reconciliation and settlements services.
Aplauz is a prepaid digital credit that empowers people to take control of their online payments. Vouchers can be bought at convenience stores and used to make online purchases — giving its users independence from credit cards and complete control over how much they spend. It is an ideal solution for those who don’t want to disclose financial details online or who simply want to set specific limits for themselves and those who they support financially.
Aplauz is currently available across over 2,000 convenience stores in Switzerland and will expand across Europe this year.
“What attracts us to Aplauz is their payment conscious model. It is about taking control of your finances, which is a mirror of IXOPAY’s platform which gives merchants control of their payment stack. It is about giving people their own agency, which is incredibly powerful.” Said Rene Siegl, Founder and Executive Chairman of IXOPAY.
“We are delighted to work with IXOPAY whose flexible nature and reach make for a smart business decision, but more than that, our culture and philosophies align which is what makes it really special, and I look forward to seeing what we can achieve together.” Added Goran Abramovic, CEO of Aplauz.
With one simple connection, online merchants will now be able to reach a new group of customers who were previously unable or unwilling to make online payments.
Aplauz is a fair way to pay online. Launched in 2020 as a new payment method that empowers people to make conscious spending, Aplauz eliminates the risk of losing control of your spending or privacy.
An Aplauz credit voucher is prepaid at convenience stores. It holds a digital credit value chosen by the customer. While paying with Aplauz, only the value on the voucher can be spent. Further charges are not possible. And the user is protected from misuse or fraud because the voucher holds no personal data. Aplauz is perfect for anyone who would like to avoid the risks associated with the traditional online payment methods. Someone who pays with Aplauz knows exactly what they are spending.That’s what we call conscious spending.
