As from today, Belgian retailers can work with CCV for the processing of their Bancontact transactions. CCV, the number two on the Belgian payments market, gets a license for processing Bancontact.
This Saturday 30 September and Sunday 1 October, UCM, the representative organisation of self-employed professionals and SMEs, and Comeos, the federation of trade and services, joined forces for the first edition of the “Weekend of the Customer”.
Thanks to the new partnership between Bancontact and myPOS, small businesses can now offer their customers a vast range of payment solutions. Think restaurants, florists, taxis and much more. “We very much look forward to this collaboration because with its 1.39 billion transactions per year, Bancontact is the main payment system in Belgium”, says Robert Jenkins, director of myPOS.
We already announced it in February and now the service has been officially launched. Belfius Bank customers can make contactless mobile payments with Bancontact in shops.
'More and more, the Belgian consumer opts for the convenience of electronic payments with Bancontact, even for the smallest amounts', says Kim Van Esbroeck, CEO of Bancontact Company. This is also apparent from the figures of Worldline, Bancontact acquirer and supplier of Bancontact to merchants. Bancontact payments for amounts under 5 euros have known an unprecedented growth of no less than 36%.
