This article is brought to you by Retail Technology Review: Partnership between Carrefour Italia and Nexi: postal payment slips and PagoPA notices payable at the checkout.

Carrefour Italia and Nexi have entered into a partnership that allows citizens to pay postal payment slips and PagoPA notices at the checkouts of more than 190 stores in Italy, including Carrefour hypermarkets and Carrefour Markets. The service, created in collaboration with Poste Italiane, enables payment to be made using any method.

Based on Nexi's technology platform, this solution is the only one of its kind in Italy and guarantees Carrefour the possibility to manage, with one integration, the interface of the checkout system with the PagoPA node and with Poste Italiane's systems. This allows them to simultaneously enable the collection of both postal payment slips and PagoPA notices.

The service, which is available during all store opening hours, enables barcode reading of payment slips and QR code reading of PagoPA notices, allowing for checkout payment of bills, utilities, taxes, fines, school services and other payments to Public Administration bodies, with the assurance of a simple, reliable and secure payment experience. 

“Our customers are always the focus of our strategy, and thanks to the partnership with Nexi, we will be able to meet their needs further, improving their shopping experience in our stores," says Alessandra Grendele, Director of E-Commerce, Marketing, Data and Digital Transformation at Carrefour Italia. "In fact, in addition to postal payment slips, it will be possible to make payments to Public Administration bodies at the checkout, in a simple, fast and secure manner.”  

“This agreement with Carrefour Italia allows us to continue to support the modernization of the country, contributing to the further spread of digital payments, specifically towards Public Administration,” says Andrea Pennacchia,  Head of Banking & PA Solutions at Nexi. 

“This partnership also allows us to take another step in the digitalisation of points of sale, while guaranteeing large-scale retail trade the opportunity to expand the range of services they offer their customers without increasing complexity at the checkout. We are the only player in Italy, in fact, that offers the integrated management of both postal payment slips and PagoPA payment notices.”
