Wirecard partners with Xsolla for European game payments

Wirecard has partnered with video game engine Xsolla, for digital payments in Europe. Wirecard will complement Xsolla’s card payments platform so that gamers have more payment options available to them.

Xsolla provides game developers and publishers with a suite of tools and services to operate and sell games globally. The deal with Wirecard will enable them to grow audiences, expand payment footprints and optimise conversion and retention.

By connecting developers and publishers directly with gamers and influencers, Xsolla provides them with enhanced audience knowledge, brand reach and sales. Core to its ethos of accessibility is to accept more of players’ preferred payment methods. Considering the global nature of the gaming industry, this is something that can be a real challenge for developers, but is also something that can be conquered with the right payment partner.
