The international payment brand Apcopay, a member of Apco Systems, announced in collaboration with Piraeus Bank, the new Fastlink service in the greek market. The new service offers large and small businesses the ability to accept electronic payments through links and QR codes, whether they are active in e-commerce or not.
The new service ensures the business development and viability of a business, allowing its customers to continue to purchase products or services by paying online, quickly, easily and safely. It is an alternative to electronic and cash payments that enhances sales, while at the same time the business better serves and protects its customers through contactless payments and deliveries of products ( contactless delivery).
Within less than 30 seconds, each business and merchant can create personalized payment links or QR Codes and send them automatically via email to their customers or by utilizing alternative ways such as SMS, messaging apps, etc. while the company receives real-time information (even through its ERP system) in order to proceed immediately to the realization of the order.
The Fastlink service does not require the existence of an e-shop, nor technical equipment (e.g. POS, ePOS), while transactions are carried out with absolute security, through PCIDSS (level 1) certified payment platform of Apcopay, applying all modern security protocols (Strong Customer Authentication -SCA & 3D Secure 2.0)
It is addressed to large and medium-sized enterprises and to merchants, such as retail, insurance, hotels, energy companies, mini-markets, liquer stores, fast food, cafes, bookstores, electronic pharmacies, furniture and home items, etc.
“We are very pleased both for the launch of the Fastlink service in the greek market and for the beginning of our cooperation with Piraeus Bank.
Fastlink has been operating successfully for years in many countries abroad and I am sure that it will substantially help businesses and traders due to the convenience, immediacy and security it offers. We will soon be announcing new payment services using QR codes that will further simplify the payment journey of a consumer and merchant.”, stated Paris Koronaios, Apcopay’s Country Manager.
