Tax Free Shopping
We empower merchants to capture the growth of international shoppers through Tax Free Shopping (TFS) technology solutions.

Tax Free Shopping enables international shoppers to claim back the VAT on their eligible purchases when they shop abroad.

A typical Tax Free Shopping journey begins with the international shopper purchasing goods in a store, with VAT included in the price, and follows three steps:

  1. The issuing of a Tax Free form at the point of sale
  2. The validation of the Tax Free form by Customs when the shopper leaves the country
  3. The refund of the VAT to the shopper once the transaction is validated

At the centre of the international shopping ecosystem, we have developed different expertise that include technology to improve efficiency in the store, Smart Data & Business Intelligence to identify International Shoppers growth’s opportunity, Targeted Marketing Solutions to increase footfall, Sales techniques and smart Technology to convert footfall into sale, and personalized customer journey to enhance performance.

Thanks to this expertise, we provide:

  • For international shoppers: incremental purchasing power from the VAT refund as well as a seamless and personalised shopping experience.
  • For merchants: incremental sales from international shoppers, increased brand awareness abroad, an easy process to issue Tax Free transactions and additional revenue streams.
  • For Customs & Authorities: increased country attractiveness, higher security and fully-compliant operations in countries where the Tax Free Shopping scheme is digitalized.

Added-Value Payment Solutions

We partner with acquirers to serve merchants and empower them to propose to International Shoppers smart Payment Solution.

Our Added-Value Payment Solutions portfolio comprises Currency Conversion Solutions and Smart Payment Solutions.

  • Our Currency Conversion Solutions include Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) at points of sale (POS), on e-commerce platforms and ATMs, as well as Multi-Currency Pricing options on e-commerce platforms.
  • Our Smart Payment Solutions include points of sale and e-commerce Gateways, Tokenization Solutions and Financial Processing.

Our Currency Conversion Solutions allow international shoppers to choose between making payments in their home currency at the best exchange rate guaranteed, or in the local currency at over 150,000 points of interaction, including shops and ATMs, or when shopping online.

We offer acquirers a full suite of Smart Payment Solutions so they can offer the best consumer payment experience to their merchants.

  • A Recruitment process is like a competition.
    To be recognized, you need to make sure that your application is not one of many fish in the sea.

    We suggest that candidates prepare their professional CV with a meaningful motivational letter, highlighting their unique suitability for the job as that is what companies are looking for in a review stage. Application documents should be free of grammar or spelling mistakes and not raising more questions than necessary – so if there are any gaps in the employment history, a brief explanation is highly appreciated.

    If invited for the interview, we advise candidates to do their own research about the company. For international candidates we additionally recommend to reflect on the cost of living, taxes and the market as relocation is always a big change.

    We consider an interview to be an open discussion at eye level, where we are able to assess both professional and personal fit. This is also an opportunity for candidates to get their questions answered, helping them to see if the job really fits their expectations.

    Because we believe that the hiring process should be a “win-win” deal for both sides!

  • As we are an international company, English is our corporate language used for communication as well as documentation.
    Therefore, we require our candidates to provide their updated CV in English.

    For better management of the recruitment process, all applications need to be submitted via our external career site, which is regularly updated with current vacancies:

Für eine Firma die angefangen hat vor 5 jahren die gesamte IT zu insourcen macht Sie sich nicht schlecht. Bei so vielen neuen Mitarbeitern in so kurzer Zeit muss man sich als Arbeitgeber erst mal finden... die Firma ist aber auf dem richtigen Weg und das ist das wichtigste.

Look at the people working with you. They are your most important asset. But you see them as workforce rather than people therefore they won't stay long nor perform very well.

Idea pool is an option. Sometimes, the inexperienced and young ones can also provide ideas that can contribute to a bigger strategy.
Recognition for performance is a thing that recently started in some departments, but not all. This may negatively impact in the departments where they are not recognized or appreciated for their hard work.
Bewertung lesen
communicate more to the people, communicate faster that is really important for us. some more training for managers so they also communicate better. Teach people to say hello or good morning, it is really annoying when no one says that. organize more events for all people.

Unprofessional and unethical management, no innovation, bad resource planning and locating. Slow moving company.

Within the smallest teams it's working fine. But on a company level the left hand doesn't know what the right one does.

Am schlechtesten bewertet: Karriere/Weiterbildung


Der am schlechtesten bewertete Faktor von Global Blue Service Company Austria ist Karriere/Weiterbildung mit 2,6 Punkten (basierend auf 27 Bewertungen).

There are opportunities to climb the ladder but there is for sure no education going on. Heard of no one actually going for any training or something similar.
Bewertung lesen
Es werden einige Trainings von der Firma angeboten, allerdings hängt auch vieles von der Eigeninitiative jedes einzelnen ab.
Only theoretical, no practical usage of those great courses.
Bewertung lesen
Internal applications are welcome and supported.
Bewertung lesen
if you want to get a training or workshop, mos of the time you have to search for it and ask the manager if you can do the training. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. We don't have career plans, but we don't have that much hierarchy levels here.
