Wat is Bancontact en hoe werkt het?
Bancontact is by far the most popular payment method in Belgium, both in-person and online. With 17.4 million units in circulation, there are more Bancontact cards than Belgians.
Bancontact is linked to 20 Belgian banks and its popularity is only increasing. Bancontact has added a new recurring payment solution to their product range called Wallet Initiated Payments, or WIP.
Yes, Bancontact was previously called Bancontact/Mister Cash. They simplified their name and logo to Bancontact in 2016.
A Bancontact user can pay online as well as in person (contactless) with a Bancontact card. They can also pay using Payconiq through the Bancontact app with the help of a generated QR code. An online payment with Bancontact takes place via a secure connection in the customer's internet banking environment.
If your company wants to enter the Belgian market, you simply cannot do without Bancontact.
Take for example Verfwinkel.nl ; the closest thing you can find to a candy store when it comes to paint supplies. The company is the largest online paint supplier in the Netherlands and is ready to conquer the Belgian market as Verfkopen.be.
'We want to expand in Belgium in the coming year,' confirms Ecommerce Manager Mark Heesters.
