Finnish online store invoices now available in NetPosti


A cooperation agreement with Suomen Verkkomaksut Oy (Finnish Online Payments) will make invoices via Itella's NetPosti available in most Finnish online stores.

Itella's NetPosti service has signed a cooperation agreement with Suomen Verkkomaksut Oy. This will make the NetPosti "invoice button" available in most Finnish online stores. By clicking the button, the customer can receive the invoice for his or her online purchases directly to his or her NetPosti service. Suomen Verkkomaksut, the leading Finnish online payment solutions provider, serves more than 1,500 Finnish online stores.

"The introduction of the NetPosti invoice button is a great improvement for both the online merchants and the customers. Online stores want to offer their customers comprehensive service and, consequently, a versatile palette of payment options enhances the customer experience. Especially when larger sums are concerned, consumers appreciate the option to pay with an invoice," says Lennu Keinänen, CEO of Suomen Verkkomaksut.

"The NetPosti customers are active users of online services and online stores. Therefore it's natural for us to make the service available in online stores. Paying for your online purchases with an e-invoice delivered in your NetPosti mailbox is a safe way to shop online. Moreover, your online purchases will be documented in your personal NetPosti archive," says Pasi Ketonen, Business Development Director of NetPosti.
