In cooperation with Berlin-based EZV Gesellschaft für Zahlungssysteme, the companies have developed BarPay to allow cash payments for products ordered online. The new payment service enables customers in Germany to order goods or services on the Internet and to pay for them in cash at 18,000 petrol stations, shops and kiosks supplied by Lekkerland network in Germany. BarPay is designed for consumers that don’t have access to credit cards, don’t want to pay in advance, or don’t trust in online payment services such as PayPal.
According to Lekkerland the flexible opening hours of convenient stores and petrol stations make BarPay a user-friendly payment method. The company’s Executive Vice President Jonny Natelberg commented: “Our national infrastructure ensures that almost all consumers can reach one of our BarPay acceptance agents within a maximum of ten minutes.”
