Global Payment Services Provider Worldline Enters the Metaverse

Global payment service provider Worldline enters the Metaverse world with the launch of a dedicated virtual showroom. The company aims to bridge the gap between the virtual and real worlds for commerce scenarios.

The French company’s metaverse showroom went live in March 2022 and is located in the Decentraland metaverse in the Crypto Valley area.

 “This very popular and central location will enable Worldline to involve and engage its network of merchants in metaverse activities, by providing a platform and creating genuine value and customer exposure for them,” said the payment services firm.

The Worldline Metaverse showroom currently includes a number of key innovative features such as:

  • A merchant of the month area, placed at the core of Worldline’s virtual land introducing a merchant with a new product. The product can then be purchased directly via the Worldline payment engine.
  • A coffee space powered by PAYONE, Worldline’s Joint Venture with the German Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe (DSV) and leading brand in merchant services in Germany and Austria. This area will facilitate more social interaction and informal meetings between users, Worldline representatives, and merchants.
  • A virtual stage for events with a space to host virtual product presentations and share knowledge with Decentraland users.
  • Supporting charity projects, beginning with support for Ukraine via well-known charity organizations. Social responsibility is a core focus for Worldline, hence the importance of assisting those in need.

Sascha Muenger, the Metaverse Expert at Worldline, says “Technological innovation is an essential part of Worldline’s DNA. The Metaverse, and Web 3.0 overall, is without doubt the next step in the development of the Internet and it is vital for us to make sure we harness the opportunities this virtual world will bring. Our plans also involve facilitating access for our merchant base and customers and providing a secure and seamless payment process in the Metaverse.”
