Nathalie Vandepeute, CEO of Bancontact Payconiq Company: “Our mission? To provide simple and reliable payment solutions to all Belgians on the road to a payment world with less cash. In other words, constantly changing the way in which people pay and are paid – and contributing to the growth of merchants’ businesses, while constantly improving the overall shopping experience.”

One app for everyone and everything
The long-awaited Belgian Payconiq by Bancontact payment app has now been launched. This new app replaces the existing Bancontact and Payconiq mobile payment apps. You can now make mobile payments with Payconiq by Bancontact everywhere you could previously with Bancontact or Payconiq separately – both in stores and webshops, as well as between private individuals. This makes the Payconiq by Bancontactapp genuinely unique in the marketplace. Better still, this new app is particularly intuitive and easy to use.

“The new payment app is an absolute must for all Belgians,” stresses Nathalie Vandepeute, CEO of Bancontact Payconiq Company. “It has been supported by 20 banks1 from the outset and can already be used at over 290,000 payment points right cross Belgium. Payconiq by Bancontact works on both iOS and Android operating systems, which means it can be used on virtually all smartphones, too! All in all, this is a giant step forward for ease and innovation.”

In the next few days, users of the Bancontact app will receive an invitation to update their app to the Payconiq by Bancontact app. Users of the Payconiq app can activate their existing Payconiq account very easily in the new app once they have downloaded the Payconiq by Bancontact app.
