Wirecard launches Innovation for Now initiative to help businesses combat COVID-19

Digital financial technology firm, Wirecard, has teamed up with Futur/io and launched Innovation for Now, a platform where merchants can find assistance packages from companies like SAP and Wirecard. The aim is to bundle the offerings of all major tech companies in Germany and make them more easily accessible to merchants affected by COVID-19.

The initiative includes discounted or free use of digital payment products and rapid product integration. Part of the offering includes the use of the Pay-by-Link at no cost, which enables every merchant to receive digital payments in real-time, even without an online shop.

We are calling on leading companies to actively participate in our ‘Innovation for Now’ initiative. Now, more than ever, it is important that we act together, and combine and share our knowledge.
