We’ve got some news: wallee now works with the payment processor TWINT. In case you do not know what TWINT is. It is Switzerland’s digital wallet.

Using TWINT makes the payment processes easier during any online shopping experience as well as at the POS. Let’s say you’re out with some friends and you don’t want to make it more complicated and start to calculate everyone's part. Instead of doing that, one can simply pay the whole amount and all the others can transfer their part immediately in real time via TWINT through their smartphone to his/her bank account. TWINT is also available in e-commerce shops to pay for your goods and services. This makes TWINT a multi-channel, digital payment method. Thanks to wallee you can now accept TWINT in your online shop in an easy way.

Mobile Payment on Desktop and Mobile Phones

wallee makes your TWINT acceptance also mobile ready. In case you checkout on your desktop you will be shown a QR Code or a token that you can type into your app to pay. In case you are using your mobile phone to shop online we are going to automatically recognize this and provide you with the app switch. In other words your installed TWINT app on your phone will be opened and you can authorize the payment directly in the app. In case you are a wallee merchant this is all included and done automatically.
