R-kioski: Using New Payment Connectivity to Supercharge Their Digital Receipts
In 2021 R-kioski decided to transition from Verifone to Adyen payment terminals for their in-store payment needs. Given ReceiptHero has been working with R-kioski since 2020, they naturally wanted a smooth transition of the digital receipt service as they completed their Adyen rollout to all stores across the country.
R-kioski is a household name in Finland and used frequently by both business cardholders and consumers for convenience items up and down the country. ReceiptHero’s digital receipt service allows customers who want a digital receipt, to get in real-time and linked to the payment card used. These receipts are then viewed in different applications and services depending where the cardholder signs up for the service.
“About 60 million customers visit the R-kioski every year. This naturally generates a large number of receipts when customers buy take-away food, R-kioski’s numerous different services and everything in between.” Maria Sjöroos, R-kioski’s IT & HR Director.
The connectivity from Visa and Mastercard integrations meant that R-kioski customers didn’t see any downtime in the service, it also meant that ReceiptHero didn’t need to directly integrate into Adyen’s payment solution. This then allowed a quicker turnaround and the benefit for R-Kioski customers to now get digital receipts from the use of vertical cards in their Apple or Google Pay wallets.
‘It’s great to go live with ReceiptHero and provide our CLS product for them to match receipts for Mastercard cardholders. This is another step in the right direction for mass adoption of digital receipts. We’re grateful to R-kioski for innovating and for ReceiptHero to be in the market to deploy a service like this for merchants’”, says Pekka Laaksonen, Country Director Mastercard Finland.
