Oslo, Norway 08.05.18 - Vipps, a Norwegian mobile payment solutions provider, has chosen Vaimo—a Magento Global Elite Partner—to deliver their official Magento 2 module.

The initiative will be of great benefit to all merchants in Norway who will be able to make their brand more easily accessible to 2.8 million Vipps users, whilst also providing their customers with quick and easy purchasing experiences through the Vipps app. And with Vipps attracting almost 100% brand recognition in Norway, businesses will instantly gain from integrating the Vipps payment module into their operations.

Preview of Vipps

Vipps users, who represent over one half of the Norwegian population, will enjoy a more convenient and frictionless shopping experience using the Vipps payment integration for Magento 2. Not only will customers have the option of checking out with Vipps in an online store but they'll also have the added ease of using their Vipps login credentials across sites.

Currently, Vipps is available to anyone with a Norwegian mobile number and similarly, the Vipps module will be available to all Magento 2 merchants based in Norway.

 

“We are looking forward to the journey with Vipps on Magento 2, having experienced demand for the payment solution from the market. Considering the growth trajectory these two platforms are currently on, this is a perfect technological match. We look forward to the launch and continued cooperation."

Kjetil S. Hansen - Country Manager at Vaimo

 

“Through the cooperation with Vaimo, a growing number of web-shops and consumers will benefit from an eCommerce experience that offers ease and speed to the payment process. We know a lot of consumers think it takes too long to complete a purchase online, but by simplifying this process the customer experience will drastically improve."

Rune Garborg - Head of Vipps 

 

Following the implementation of the initial base module, Vaimo is to continue a close developing relationship with Vipps, drawing on its vast expertise and experience to create new features and drive innovation in the Norwegian commerce space.
