Wirecard announces peer-to-peer function for all boon users

By Briony Richter

Wirecard, a leading specialist for digital financial technology, has today announced a renewed expansion of its mobile payments app, boon.

All Android and iOS boon users will now have access to the peer-to-peer (P2P) function. Wirecard has decided to extend the P2P function to ensure that all users can experience real-time transactions.

Georg von Waldenfels, executive vice president of consumer solutions at Wirecard, stated: “boon has become an ecosystem for all our users’ financial needs. These include mobile payments at the POS with real-time payment overview, online payments with a digital credit card, instant microloans as well as P2P transfers.

“We are therefore offering our users genuine value added, with further innovative features already in the pipeline for the app.”

The mobile payments app is the only fully digitalised mobile payment solution that operates independently of banks on the European market.

The app is available in Belgium, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Austria and Spain on Android devices, while iOS users in the UK, France, Italy, Ireland, Switzerland and Spain can also access the app via Apple Pay.
