Wirecard has extended its collaboration with Austria-based firm ENIO to add contactless payment capability to e-mobility charging stations across Europe.

ENIO supplies technological solutions required to construct and operate these stations, which will now be able to accept contactless Visa and Mastercard credit and debit cards.

The partnership between the companies has been ongoing since 2016 and resulted in the launch of an app designed to facilitate digital on-site payments. The app can also be used to locate nearby charging stations.

However, the new contactless technology does not require pre-installation of the ENIO app.

ENIO CEO and partner Fritz Vogel said: “In order to ensure that everybody has access to e-mobility, our aim was to create an innovative infrastructure, which in addition to numerous other aspects, includes advanced payment options.

“In doing so, we are reliant on our partner Wirecard, who, over the past few years, has demonstrated innovative power and reliability in terms of our app and now, for the card-based solution as well.”
