Global Payments has agreed to provide payment technology services to Hyundai Motor UK’s industry-first online car buying platform – Click To Buy.

Click to Buy allows customers nationwide to buy cars from any participating Hyundai Dealership in the UK, completely online.

In addition, Hyundai is also providing online card payment solutions on the platform for an integrated and seamless transaction.

Global Payments president and managing director of UK Nigel Hyslop said: “Ecommerce has changed the way we shop, and the online car buying experience provided by Hyundai’s Click to Buy is transformational to this industry. This software enabled technology allows customers to now have more choice in how and when they can purchase a car.”

Hyundai Motor UK president and CEO Tony Whitehorn said: “Click To Buy is an industry-first developed by Hyundai in-house and it aims to make the car buying process easier and more transparent than ever before.

“Consumers today demand choice and simplicity; they already expect to be able to buy a car in the same way that they’d be able to purchase their clothes or electrical goods online.”
