EasyTransferWirecard, a digital financial technology based in Munich, and China’s EasyTransfer are collaborating to enable seamless mobile payments for digital-native Chinese students.

Georg von Waldenfels, Executive Vice President Group Business Development, Wirecard mentioned, “Ease of use is imperative for EasyTransfer. Its success is built upon a highly consumer-centric approach and active engagement with its users.”

He further stated, “The future of payment globally is simple, intelligent, and mobile. EasyTransfer agrees with this vision.

We want to become the number one financial service provider for the more than 1,800,000 Chinese students that now study abroad. We want to achieve this through exceptional customer service and a revolutionary user experience. Wirecard’s support and expertise in international payments is imperative to us in achieving that goal.”

Wirecard has customised its intelligent mobile payment platform for EasyTransfer which will offer Chinese international students flexible and familiar payment processes as well as a wealth of loyalty features and ancillary services.
