optile Announced as a Winner of the Golden Transaction at the Payment Exchange 2018


Munich, January 25th, 2018 – optile GmbH, an open payment platform for international online enterprises, has been named a winner of the Golden Transaction award in the category “Customer Benefit” at the Payment Exchange 2018. Initiated by paymentandbanking, the most influential German finance blog, and Payment Exchange, the event for innovators and trendsetters in payment, this award is annually honouring the most innovative solutions in the financial and payment industries since 2016.

The Golden Transaction awards recognizes three winners in the categories “Innovation”, “User Experience”, and “Customer Benefit”. Numerous nominated companies, agencies, merchants as well as service providers, which have created a prominent and innovative payment solution, were evaluated by nine top-level payment experts and professionals. The main criterion for the selection of the winners lied in the positive reflection of their solution on the payment flow in terms of conversion optimisation, usability, costs and risks as well as customer benefit and satisfaction.

optile has been awarded in the category “Customer Benefit” for its Advanced Payment Routing Solution. The main goal of the product is to give the merchant the choice to decide, how their payment transactions should be distributed between connected payment service providers and methods in the countries they are active in. By spreading risks between various payment methods, payment providers, acquirers, or banks across multiple countries, optile’s advanced routing helps online businesses to avoid down time, lower direct and indirect costs and improve their payment success rate.

With it, e-businesses are able to expand to new countries with multiple global and local payment methods, without additional effort and complexity. Furthermore, end-customers will be happy to find their preferred payment mix on the merchant’s market as well as enjoy the frictionless payment experience. Advanced Routing has been already recognized twice with awards, the first one being the “Digital Payment Solution” at the Webit Festival 2017 held in Sofia, Bulgaria.

“We are very proud that our Advanced Routing solution was recognized with the Golden Transaction award at the Payment Exchange”, says Daniel Smeds, CEO and Founder of optile. “Striving for innovation, optile’s Open Payments bring our clients to the next level of payment experience and help them to find just the right payment setup to best fit their companies’ strategy.”
