AcceptEasy and Worldline partner to offer a smart e-billing solution
Paris, 27 June 2017 – Worldline [Euronext:WLN], European leader in the payments and transactional services industry, and AcceptEasy, the market leader for consumer remittances in Western Europe, partner to offer a multichannel e-billing solution including payments processed by WL Sips and Commercial Acquiring solutions.
With this innovative solution, the customers receive their invoice on their phone, tablet or PC via text message or email. No register or login is required as bank details are already pre-filled.
To pay any bill, a fast and simple click on the email banner will redirect the payer to a WL Sips payment page where they can choose among the payment means available to pay for the bill received. Once paid, the status of the invoice will change (also on the sender’s side) and the email banner will turn from blue to green, allowing the customers to follow up their bills in real time. In this way merchants can interact with their customers’ channel of choice and enable a seamless user experience.
This solution can address many use cases as paying bills for rents, charges, telephone, internet, child health, insurance, school fees, subscriptions, taxes, donations and much more...
For merchants, the joint offering of Worldline and AcceptEasy is more than just e-billing as it is a solution covering all steps of the payment collection process, from the notification of the clients, the mandate request or the online payment, to the acquiring of payment.
The benefits of this solution:
- Real-time insights, detailed tracking of bill delivery and payment status
- Regulation and compliance requirements met
- Shorter order-to-cash cycles with SME customers
- Lowering trading partner administration cost
- Reducing the high number of costly invoice queries
- Limiting the environmental impact with a paperless approach
Worldline invites you to the Money 20/20 show in Copenhagen, June 26-28 2017, to meet the team and discover a smart experience around e- billing.
