App to Pay for Parking: Wirecard Supports sunhill technologies

ASCHHEIM, Germany, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Mobile phone parking tickets for more flexibility
  • Tokenisation server ensures increased security

Payment expert Wirecard is supporting sunhill technologies GmbH in its expansion of mobile ticketing services. From April this year, smartphone users can register their payment details and park their vehicles using the sms&park (on-street parking) and sms&exit 2.0 DF (off-street parking) apps to book and pay for parking. Currently, users can choose to pay by credit card or SEPA direct debit. sunhill technologies apps are already available in numerous towns and cities in Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands and with the benefit of Wirecard's payment channels, the company will be able to rapidly expand into various other European countries.

For nearly a decade, sunhill technologies has been developing cashless payment methods for mobile phones and, to this end, has been working with a number of leading mobile technology companies. Up to now, payment has been made by mobile phone bill or prepaid phone; however, the link to the Wirecard Checkout Page now makes cashless payment by app and other payment channels possible.

As Matthias Mandelkow, CEO of sunhill technologies, says: "Parking by phone is successfully establishing itself as a payment channel. The rapid rise in mobile phones means that mobile payment is becoming even more important. Wirecard makes parking by mobile phone even more flexible and internationally available for our customers."

Jan Rübel, Head of Sales Travel at Wirecard, explains: "Current developments in consumer behaviour are tending towards the cashless society, and this has made it very evident how important a good mobile customer experience is. sunhill technologies identified this trend early on and we are delighted that we can support it with the solutions we offer."

To use sunhill technologies smartphone apps, all the user has to do is download them free of charge. By registering the car number plate on the app and then choosing the parking space or car park, parking reservations can be made quickly and easily. Payment can now be made either by the convenient Wirecard in-app payment function using the registered credit card or by SEPA direct debit. Sensitive payment data is entered on the secure payment page for storage on the PCI-compliant Wirecard tokenisation server. It is even possible to extend parking time via the app. sunhill technologies will be presenting its Wirecard-based solutions at Intertraffic, the leading trade fair for communications and infrastructure, taking place in Amsterdam from 25 to 28 March 2014.

Visit Wirecard on stand 140 in hall 5.1 at the ITB fair in Berlin from 5 to 9 March 2014.
