PPRO has announced its partnership with Lunar and Swish to unlock Swedish consumer market for global businesses.


As per the official press release, this collaboration is set to enhance PPRO’s instant payment capabilities in Sweden through integration with Lunar’s payment infrastructure and will allow Swedish consumers to use local payment method Swish for payments at more of their favourite global merchant brands. 

The ecommerce market in Sweden is worth USD 43 billion, with people in the country buying almost USD 6 billion worth of goods and services from ecommerce merchants in other countries. Sweden’s main trade corridors between China, Germany, and the United States account for 65% of cross-border sales providing more opportunities for merchants in these countries to drive growth. 

PPRO has announced its partnership with Lunar and Swish to unlock Swedish consumer market for global businesses.

The press release states that Swish will be available to PPRO customers in the coming months, in 2024. Along with debit cards, Swish is the most common local payment method used for ecommerce purchases by Swedish consumers, reinforcing the need for global businesses to offer their preferred payment method at checkout. 

Officials from PPRO stated that this partnership will enable its global partners and customers to tap into the Swedish ecommerce market at scale. Moreover, PPRO's partnership with Lunar is expected to unlock a highly complex banking environment and enable not only access to instant payments in Sweden, but also help PPRO expand further across the Nordics.
