Wirecard will integrate payment methods including Apple Pay, IDEAL, credit card payments, MrCash and P24, as well as handling all payment processing.

It will allow us to appeal even more effectively to a younger target group. We are delighted to usher in this new era with Wirecard at our side and to give even more customers across the world the opportunity to capture the best moments of their lives with Olympus’ cutting-edge technology.”
