Computop, one of the leading payment service providers, has announced that it has integrated its payment platform, Computop Paygate, into the Spryker Commerce Operating System. Spryker Commerce OS, a new generation of commerce technology which enables permanent adaptation to customer needs by means of easy and flexible customer touchpoint implementation, already supports payment methods including credit card, PayPal and Paydirekt, as well as Sofort, iDeal, easyCredit and SEPA direct debit.
The integration of Computop Paygate makes it easier for manufacturers, retailers and agencies that are developing digital commerce solutions based on the Spryker Commerce OS to integrate international payment options and fraud prevention. For example, when it comes to credit card payments, retailers now have access to over fifty acquiring connections. These include the direct connection to Discover, which is primarily relevant in the US market.
Retailers who also operate bricks-and-mortar shops can expand their payment systems into true omnichannel solutions using Computop POS terminals. This enables them to process and analyse payments from all channels and markets using a single database.
“Spryker and Computop are an excellent match”, says Bernd Schelter, Extensions Partner Manager at Computop, “because the operating system’s agile, modular design fits perfectly with using Computop to operate individual payment solutions, especially for larger retailers.”
Patrick Kleine-Albers, Director of Industry Partnerships at Spryker Systems adds, “With Computop, we are expanding our ecosystem to include a payment solution that optimally meets our customers’ requirements and can handle increasingly diversified transaction processes in the payment world.”
Spryker is the developer behind the unique commercial operating system, Spryker Commerce OS, for the post-desktop, post-shop era, allowing companies to reach their customers across any conceivable digital contact point. In an age of constantly changing user expectations and device diversity, Spryker Commerce OS allows quick implementation of new customer interfaces (apps), such as desktop shops, mobile apps, internet of things (IoT) scenarios, or chatbot and voice recognition, opening new sources of revenue with minimum lead times. The Spryker Systems team is based in Berlin and Hamburg.Back
