MWC Partners have completed a full integration between Klarna’s Buy-Now-Pay-Later payment application and Cegid’s suite of in-store POS solutions. Cegid’s 1,200+ global retail customers now have access to this integration to offer Klarna’s secure, frictionless payment method across their store estate.
Keen to expand their physical retail footprint, Klarna knew that an integration with Cegid Retail’s suite of market leading point of sale solutions would open new opportunities in many leading specialty retail stores. Klarna needed an integration partner with acknowledged expertise in both the Cegid POS applications and the complexities of developing store payment integrations. Following initial discussions and workshops, the Klarna team had the confidence in MWC Partners to commission an initial proof of concept and subsequently a full integration.
The integration developed by MWC Partners offers two alternative methods of customer capture, depending on the market in which the integration is deployed. The sales associate can either scan a QR code presented by the customer or, alternatively, communicate details of the customer’s mobile phone number or email address direct to Klarna. The video below shows how both of these transaction flows work in Cegid Retail Y2.
With over twenty years’ experience in developing, implementing, and supporting payment systems for physical retail and in integrating payment software with POS solutions, MWC Partners bridge the technology and knowledge gap between in-store systems and payment software. MWC Partners provide payment service providers, online payment companies and retailers with leading-edge, market-focused solutions.
“We are delighted to be supporting Klarna expand their reach into physical retail by integrating their solution with Cegid Retail.” commented Steve Watson, Chairman of MWC Partners. “Our integration is compatible with all three of Cegid’s Global POS offerings – Cegid Retail Y2, Cegid mPOS and Cegid Live Store – so existing retailers using any of these three platforms can now offer the Klarna payment option in-store to increase basket spend, conversion rates and customer satisfaction.”
MWC Partners’ dedicated payment software integrations team have helped many of the world’s leading payment service providers to develop solutions for physical retail.
