Yandex.Checkout to provide online payments for Renault Russia
January 16, 2017
Yandex.Checkout, Russia’s leading online payment service, has enabled Russians to prepay for their Renault cars online. Renault.ru online store offers its customers a variety of 2016 vehicles, which are now available for booking and prepayment via the store website.
«Russian people are already used to online shopping, they no longer fear buying expensive things via the Internet. Online car purchase is still regarded as a new service for the Russian market, however it has a promising potential. We believe that the case of such a successful automobile manufacturer as Renault is a great example for the whole market, which will eventually speed up the process of other automobile companies coming online», says Alexander Magomedov, Yandex.Money Chief Commercial Officer.
Earlier this year Renault Russia launched an online prepayment pilot for its Renault Kaptur crossover. Russian users can now prepay for other vehicles: Logan, Sandero, Sandero Stepway, Duster and Fluence. The sum of the payment cannot exceed 30 000 rubles (~$500). The payment can be made via any bank card — without any additional fees.
Renault.ru is now collaborating with 60 dealers in 35 cities in Russia. The company is planning to expand in Russia adding prepayment for other services and car parts.
According to the latest data by Yandex.Money, the number of Russians ordering car parts and accessories online this year has increased by 80%.
Yandex.Checkout is the leading service for accepting online payments in Russia, according to a 2016 survey by MARC. With this payment solution, merchants from all over the world can offer Russian consumers the online payment methods most popular among Russians and CIS-citizens: bank cards, e-wallets, mobile phones, and cash via mobile retailers and payment kiosks (there are over 250 thousand cash-acceptance points all over CIS). Currently, more than 76,000 online stores across the globe use Yandex.Checkout.
Renault.ru is the first online platform on the Russian market allowing users to book and prepay for their cars online. Users can get acquainted with the cars, book them online and make prepayment without leaving their house. The website was launched in June 2016.
