With this partnership, the two internationally operating companies aim to use synergies in their portfolio, further strengthen their innovative power and tap international growth potential.

Netcetera and G+D entered the strategic partnership in August 2020. Subject to approval by the antitrust authorities, G+D will become a shareholder of the Netcetera Group with its investment. Its funds will be used to accelerate Netcetera’s business growth and global expansion.Netcetera, founded in Zurich in 1996, brings large expertise in digitization and software development, as well as its innovative strength to the partnership. G+D is strongly positioned worldwide with a focus on the four core areas of payment, connectivity, identities and digital infrastructures. As one of the leading companies in physical, electronic and digital payment, G+D opens further doors for Netcetera in the global market. Simultaneously, the Munich group expands its portfolio of innovative solutions for securing transactions with Netcetera’s software tools. By joining forces, both companies want to serve the growing demand for digital security together.

“Netcetera looks back on an impressive business development. We see many connecting factors in our respective portfolios. Therefore, we are convinced that both companies will benefit greatly from this involvement,” says Ralf Wintergerst, Group CEO at G+D. “Together with Netcetera we want to enhance our portfolio with supplemental innovative software products for digital payment.

“Andrej Vckovski, CEO of Netcetera, says: “We are very pleased about the partnership. G+D is very similar to us in many aspects and paves the way for further success of our expanding strategy. I am convinced that this significant step will help us grow sustainably and independently.

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.
