Intersport reports that it has completed about three million transactions, with a total value of €20 million, since the introduction of its digital voucher system in Germany in 2016. The uniform digital voucher system was introduced together with Epay, a full-service provider for vouchers and prepaid solutions as well as electronic payments. The digital voucher system is now also available in Austria, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary. Voucher cards can be purchased online, at Intersport stores or at the point-of-sale terminals that Epay has set up at major retail chains. The value of the cards can be selected flexibly. EHI, the German retail institute, estimates that more than €3 billion in vouchers are being used for transactions every year in the German retail industry.
