Written by Chris Lemmon

Optical and digital technology firm Olympus is launching an online global shop and has signed Wirecard as a payments partner.

Wirecard will integrate payment methods including Apple Pay, IDEAL, credit card payments, MrCash and P24, as well as handling all payment processing. Olympus will also be using a customised version of the risk management system FPS, which identifies data and bhaviour patterns in real-time and uses machine learning and AI to ensure security.

Christian Pott, department manager of marketing communications at Olympus Europe, said: “With nearly 100 years of history behind us, we are proud to present our own online shop. 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.”

Marion Laewe, vice president sales consumer goods at Wirecard, added: “We are delighted to support Olympus and its Europe-wide online shop with our expertise and customized state-of-the-art solutions. Wirecard is simplifying payment processing and ensuring that e-payments are secure and flexible for both Olympus and its customers.”
