Worldline’s digital payments are selected to bolster Kilo Health’s expansion plans
By Joy Dumasia
Worldline, a global leader in the payments and transactional services industry, has been selected by digital health and wellness front-runner Kilo Health as its digital payments partner to support its international expansion strategy, specifically recurring or subscription payments.
The world is more health-conscious than ever before, with the global wellness market’s worth estimated at more than $1.5 trillion. Over 2021, the sector experienced a surge in consumer interest and purchasing power, driven by a post-pandemic rebound. Against this backdrop, Worldline has won significant business from Kilo Health to serve the growing need for smooth and efficient payments.
Kilo Health has over 4 million customers and creates a product-driven health and wellness ecosystem underpinned by an ambitious expansion strategy. The company has more than 15 products and 500 employees and was recently awarded second place in Deloitte’s “2021 Technology Fast 50 Central Europe” as one of the fastest-growing tech companies in the region.
Through a blend of digital payments expertise and quality commercial infrastructure, particularly in recurring and subscription payments, Worldline’s main value proposition is to enhance and consolidate Kilo Health’s unique advantage as a digital health and wellness pioneer, both in its existing European markets and subsequently further afield as its international rollout continues. Kilo Health was onboarded and started processing quickly with Worldline through its partner Primer, an automation platform for payments.
Roy Blokker, Director Global Business Development, Digital Goods and Services, at Worldline, said: “Kilo Health was looking for a partner to help them optimise their payment performance and scale by entering some of the world’s fastest-growing markets. At Worldline, we are committed to providing reliable, forward-thinking technology, and we complement this rapidly with the right support. We are delighted to be part of Kilo Health’s exciting journey and look forward to a long-lasting and successful partnership.”
Tadas Burgaila, CEO at Kilo Health, added: “Kilo Health is a hungry, highly ambitious organisation that continues to experience unprecedented growth. With our sights set firmly on true global evolution, counting the highest growth economies as a key component, we immediately recognised Worldline’s standout capabilities in these jurisdictions. We are thrilled to be embarking on our partnership with them, on our road to success.”
