PAYONE, the leading payment provider in the German market and the joint venture of Ingenico Group, the global leader in seamless payments, and the DSV Group, the competence centre for payment within the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe, will be responsible for ALDI SÜD’s debit and credit card business effective immediately.

PAYONE GmbH has been supporting ALDI SÜD for over a decade with network operation and the associated girocard transactions. Retroactively to 1 July 2020, PAYONE will also take on responsibility for the retailer’s debit and credit card payment processing in its stationary shops, comprising processing of all payments made using Mastercard, Visa, V Pay or Maestro cards.

Niklaus Santschi, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of PAYONE, comments: “We feel honoured by the trust ALDI SÜD is placing in us with the extension of our long-standing cooperation, and we are pleased to be allowed to demonstrate our expertise in the debit and credit card business as well. Over the medium to long term, this could also be a foundation for expanding our cooperation in the area of innovative payment solutions, such as those that connect stationary shops with e-commerce business.”


PAYONE is one of the leading payment providers in Europe and regards itself as a partner to retail. At the point of sale (POS), online or mobile – PAYONE supports merchants and service providers in responding to the increasingly complex challenges of payment processes and sales channels. As a full-service payment service provider, PAYONE also ensures quick, easy, secure and virtually invisible payment in the background. Whether credit and debit cards, alternative payment methods, card and automated terminals, e-commerce or mobile payment, PAYONE provides its customers with tailored solutions, while offering maximum security.

For example, forward-looking omni-channel concepts from PAYONE help retailers focus rigorously on their own customers’ needs. In doing so, PAYONE’s objective is always to enable smooth payment.

PAYONE handles more than 2.6 billion transactions a year for its approximately 200,000 customers in the DACH region. With its more than 1,200 employees at eight locations, the company also delivers many value-added services which extend far beyond the traditional payment business.
