New payment provider: Wirecard

Oct. 14, 2017

We are happy to announce that pretix now supports a new payment service provider, Wirecard. Wirecard is a German-based bank and online payment provider bundling a huge number of payment methods within one single payment gateway.

As an event organizer, for you that means that you only need to set up one account and contract at Wirecard and then accept payments with all the payment methods supported by Wirecard:

If you are interested, check out Wirecard's product Checkout Portal which provides an "account configurator" allowing you to set up most of the above payment methods and calculate the expected fees.

Wirecard is now available as an optional plugin installed on the pretix Hosted environment. For self-hosted installs of pretix, you can install the new pretix-wirecard plugin.

Thank you very much!

The open source release of the Wirecard integration has been possible as a result of work sponsored by our friends at ERNW Insight.

Thank you very much for supporting our open source efforts!

If you are also interested in sponsoring us to work on specific features, please get in touch with us.
