The company has never before exceeded the 2 billion mark for electronic payments in the same year. This figure illustrates the fact that an ever increasing numbers of Belgians are making the switch from cash to mobile and card payments. It also shows that payment solutions offered by a local player can be very successful on the Belgian market.

Once again this year, the number of mobile payments made with Payconiq and Bancontact continues to climb steeply. Between January and August, Belgians pulled out their smartphones to pay for purchases 37% more often than in the same period last year. The growing popularity of making mobile payments via Payconiq at summer festivals partly explains this success. In August, we paid for the first time over 2 million times by scanning a QR code for our purchases made in-store and at festivals.
