DUBLIN, Ireland – June 23, 2021 – HIPS Payment Group Ltd., a provider of innovative and cost-effective e-commerce and mobile payment solutions, and Vourity, a Swedish SaaS platform for unattended Sales and Payments with one of the leading digital payment solutions for Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations in Europe, today announced their partnership, enabling payments for 50,000 EV charging stations across the European Union (EU).
“We are really pleased to announce this partnership as we believe it is forward-thinking on many fronts; allowing the use of digital payments will make charging convenient for all EV drivers, which will accelerate the move to an all-electric vehicle future,” says John Cavebring, CEO of Hips.
Currently, the Vourity platform enables EV drivers to pay for charging by using regular open payment methods such as credit cards (e.g., Visa and Mastercard), Apple Pay, Google Pay, Swish, and Bluecode. The partnership with Hips will expand customer payment processing options, promoting the use of new currencies as a viable and accessible option.
Digital payments will be fully integrated in the Vourity platform via Hips Merchant Protocol’s (HMP) native protoco starting November 2021. The roll out to 50,000 EV charging stations across the EU will be over 3 years.
“At Vourity, we are all about innovation and that starts with listening to EV drivers to understand and address their evolving needs. We want to make it easy for drivers to charge their car and offering an open platform that allows for digital payments is the most logical choice for our next generation world,” said Hans Nottehed, CEO of Vourity.
