EVO Payments International supports Silkpay's expansion in Europe with online and offline solutions

Easy electronic payment in all European countries with the most popular and, above all, familiar payment options, to improve the customer's buying experience on all channels – this precisely is the goal of the successful fintech company Silkpay headquartered in Paris.

As one of the "best start-ups in Android development", Silkpay already offers omnichannel payment solutions for in-store and online payment acceptance, especially to European merchants looking to expand internationally.

Together with EVO Payments, one of the world's leading full-service providers of payment technologies and services, the course has now been set to expand online business across Europe by means of gateway and acquiring services and to make the shopping experience at the POS in Germany more efficient with smart terminal solutions. In addition to the classic payment methods in the European region, there is a focus on Chinese consumers offering payment methods such as Alipay and WeChat Pay.

"I want to offer the best experience to Chinese tourists visiting Europe, and with Silkpay I set out to give them the opportunity to pay in France and Europe as they would in their home country. EVO Payments International was our first choice to get us closer to achieving this goal because of its huge, international network, with operations in 50 markets and more than 150 currencies around the globe, and the acquiring licences required to do so," explains Annie Guo, founder and CEO of Silkpay. "Moreover, Silkpay shares the same values and goals as EVO – to exceed customer and partner expectations. By combining our expertise and with our innovation, together we can set our sights on this goal and achieve it faster and more securely."

"We are excited to be a partner of Silkpay and be able to help write the success story of this impressive fintech company, to make our contribution to increasing sales and generating new customers on an international level with our offline and online payment solutions for Silkpay's payment platform. It is great to see how well Silkpay supports merchants across Europe by enabling them to accept Chinese payment methods, Alipay and WeChat Pay, at the physical point-of-sale and online. We at EVO are very happy to support Silkpay on this important journey," said Anna Bejaoui, General Manager at EVO Payments International.
