The jury recognized Riverty’s approach to improving the payment process for merchants and creating a seamless experience for consumers with its BNPL solutions. The goal: a customer-friendly payment experience after checkout. The increasing importance of this is underpinned by online studies that Riverty regularly conducts to provide merchants with valuable insights into shopping trends and consumer behaviour. According to these studies, one in three online purchases is now paid for with BNPL. „The flexible payment option is therefore an important success factor for retailers,“ says Sebastian Ehrke, Director Ecosystem Growth & Global Campaigns at FinTech Riverty. 23% of BNPL customers consider the availability of payment methods to be a decisive factor when choosing a webshop - compared to only 13% of non-BNPL customers. This indicates that a significant proportion of BNPL customers actively seek online shops that offer purchase on account. "Offering BNPL options therefore increases the likelihood of conversion."

Riverty offers innovative BNPL payment options in nine European countries. The core BNPL products, such as 14-day billing, fixed instalments, secure direct debit or monthly billing, allow consumers to manage their own payment terms and combine convenience with control. As the only provider, Riverty also takes responsibility for delayed and missed payments, providing additional security and trust for merchants and consumers. In partnership with terStal, Riverty also offers a BNPL option for brick-and-mortar retailers, enabling omnichannel merchants to meet customer payment preferences online and instore.

 "We are very honoured to have won the E-Commerce Germany Award 2024 in the 'Best Payment Solution' category," said Sebastian Ehrke, commenting on the award, in which Riverty beat other nominees such as EasyCredit, Mollie and Ratepay. "This award is a confirmation of our commitment and an incentive for us to continue offering our customers the best possible payment solutions. Payment solutions that not only support the growth of our merchants, but also focus on consumers and their individual financial."
