Newpharma collaborates with Ingenico for e-payments
Belgian online pharmacy firm Newpharma has partnered with UK-based payments company Ingenico Group to enable secure payments for pharmaceutical customers. Newpharma will be able to provide various payment options for buyers in certain European markets. The company expects the alliance to support its growth plans. Founded in 2008, Newpharma focuses on growing the online pharmacy industry. It is authorised to sell non-prescription medicines, which contribute 15% of the company’s sales. A major portion of non-prescription medication sales are recorded in France and the Netherlands. The company sought a payments partner to cater to growing demand in its domestic market and address sensitive e-pharmacy purchases. Ingenico ePayments will process international sales and protect personal details.
