Thursday 27 April 2023 10:36 CET | News

Financial services provider PAYONE, a joint venture of Worldline and the DSV Group, has announced a strategic partnership with Payla and Vereinigte Volksbank Raiffeisenbank (VVRB).


Based on the information detailed in the press release, this is set to enable PAYONE’s merchant customers with access to new products in the area of Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL), which are set to be provided and distributed in cooperation with VVRB, a partner of fintechs in receivables financing, and Payla, a white-label provider of Pay Later products for payment service providers (PSPs) and financial institutions (FIs).

BNPL and what the PAYONE, Payla, and VVRB collaboration entails

Germany- and Austria-based PAYONE merchant customers are now provided access to three new payment methods in ecommerce, namely Secured Direct Debit, Secured Purchase on Account and Secured Payment by Instalments. Per the announcement, these payment methods can be connected via PAYONE’s existing shop modules or directly via the PAYONE interface. What is more, an integration of the new payment instruments for the point-of-sale, analogous to the launch of online shops, is expected to be rolled out within 2023.

The framework of this cooperation enables PAYONE to provide merchants with the complete BNPL portfolio ‘white label’ from a single source with the associated acceptance contract. Payla offers a platform designed especially for this purpose, which helps carry out risk assessments in real-time, amongst others, whereas VVRB oversees the required refinancing of the receivables.

Björn Hoffmeyer, Chief Commercial Officer PAYONE advised that the months of cooperation with VVRB and Payla have come as a confirmation that the company has chosen equal partners in terms of know-how and solution provision for the new portfolio around secured invoice purchase, secured instalment purchase and direct debit. They added that these payment methods are popular amongst end consumers and merchants alike, as well as easy to implement, and have been well received by customers.

Adding on the announcement, Ralf Magerkurth, CEO of VVRB said that VVRB has been activating within the consumer receivables financing field, and by partnering with PAYONE, they are looking to ‘write a new chapter’ in Germany and Austria when talking about the usage of innovative BNPL products, adding that they see potential in this ‘strategic and sustainable partnership’.
