EPG is a payment services provider that operates in the areas of online payment and gateway services. The company has its headquarters in Frankfurt am Main and has been part of the Gauselmann Group since 2014. On behalf of its customers, EPG coordinates and authenticates all processes related to the interfacing of payment methods and the processing of payment transactions. EPG offers payments via Giropay, “Sofortüberweisung” (instant transfer), paysafecard, Neteller and Skrill, among others.
EPG’s subsidiary in Malta has a licence as an e-money institution (EMI), which since mid-2019 can be used in several countries of the European Union, including Germany. On the basis of this licence, EPG developed the proprietary e-Wallet “Paylado” that online companies can use to offer their customers convenient and practical payment via an e-money account. Within the Gauselmann Group, this is used in the area of sports betting and virtual slot games. With the option of e-money conversion, "Paylado" connects the digital with the stationary MERKUR games world.
The strategic goal of the Gauselmann Group is to increase the customer benefit in respect of payment transactions for the group’s offerings (online casinos, virtual slot games and sports bets) through the integration of EPG’s services.
