ZebraPay, provider of e-payment services via self-service terminals placed in commercial spaces, proximity stores, public squares, gas stations, universities and campuses, estimates its terminals will process 2.5 times more transactions this year compared to the last.
Last year, Zebra Pay processed over 600,000 payments via its terminals while this year estimations stand at over 1.5 million payments. These take into account the organic growth of the business as well as the planned launch of new services.
“Romanian consumers need more mobility. Many of them have less and less time. They are looking for solutions at hand to make daily payments- such as recharging their card, paying the road tax or a press subscription fee,” said Adrian Badea (in picture), executive director of ZebraPay.
The quantum of payments processed last year via the ZebraPay terminals was approximately RON 23 million (approximately EUR 5.1 million), which is 4.6 times higher than during the previous year. In 2011, the payments that were processed via ZebraPay cumulated RON 5 million (EUR 1.1 million).
On July 1, ZebraPay recently sealed a partnership with train company CFR Calatori, which allows travelers to buy train tickets with a discount of nearly 8 percent through the 600 ZebraPay terminals placed in areas with most traffic across 90 localities all over Romania.
Earlier in spring, ZebraPay launched a partnership with PayU, the main online payment processing company in Romania, which allows them to pay for the products and services that were acquired online.
At the end of last year, ZebraPay placed its payment terminals in over 70 percent of the Carrefour hypermarkets.
