MUNICH, November 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Integrated payment processing for online shops in Germany and Austria

The Detmold-based Wortmann Group, Europe's largest shoe manufacturer and the market leader for fashionable ladies shoes, has decided to work together with Wirecard AG. The payment service provider, with international operations, will take over payment processing for the Tamaris brand's new online shops in Germany and Austria.

The Wortmann Group's collections are sold in more than 15,000 shoe stores in over 70 countries around the world. The "Tamaris" brand is particularly successful.
