Younited partners with Microsoft and announces the launch of Xbox All Access in Italy
Thanks to the strategic partnership with Microsoft, the consumer credit fintech Younited has created a unique and innovative financing product to meet the diverse needs of Italian gamers, who will be able to purchase Xbox All Access online, receiving the console directly at home or picking it up in a GameStop store.
Younited announces the expansion of its partnership with Microsoft, already launched in France in 2020, in occasion of the launch of the Xbox All Access program in Italy through the retailer GameStop.
Xbox All Access allows all videogame enthusiasts to choose between two different products and plunge themselves in the entire Xbox ecosystem with a single monthly fee. To meet the different needs of Italian gamers, and thanks to the partnership signed between Microsoft and Younited, it will be possible to activate the Xbox All Access service comfortably, from home, online, through an innovative payment method, which allows players to both get the console they prefer between Xbox Series S or Series X, and subscribe to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
"The partnership with Microsoft and GameStop represents a fundamental step for us, and are not only important acknowledgments of the innovative nature of the payment solutions developed by Younited, appreciated and supported by major players in different sectors, but they take us forward on the path to become a European leader in supporting the needs of those who want to keep up with technology by purchasing cutting-edge products and services. Through this partnership, Younited confirms its transformation, which began in 2018, into a leading SaaS payment and lending platform in Europe with global ambitions; a choice that has brought about constant growth and that, with the last significant equity round of 170 million dollars in July 2021, will allow us to further develop our platform and to create alternative payment services and solutions, positioning ourselves more and more as a fintech leader at an international level.”
