BANCONTACT PAYCONIQ COMPANY
In 2018 Bancontact Company and Payconiq Belgium joined forces and merged to become Bancontact Payconiq Company. The company is an initiative by AXA Bank, Belfius, BNP Paribas Fortis, ING and KBC.
The Payconiq by Bancontact payment app enables users to make mobile payments, in total security, across the widest possible range of payment situations: in bricks-and-mortar stores (both small retailers and Delhaize supermarkets), on webshops, in restaurants and cafés, in sports club refreshment bars, at the doctor, etc.
The app also makes it possible to pay invoices, share the bill when out with family or friends, or make large or small donations to good causes.
In 2020 Belgians paid 125 million times with the Payconiq by Bancontact app or with a bank app offering the Bancontact and/or Payconiq payment methods.
The Bancontact card remains the reference for electronic payments, with a strong boom for contactless payments: 442 million contactless payments with the Bancontact card in 2020.
With the Bancontact card and the Payconiq by Bancontact app together more than 1.65 billion payments were registered in 2020.
The app and payment card complement each other perfectly, enabling users to pay wherever they are, in an instant.
Dialogic has been guiding Bancontact Payconiq Company in terms of Press Relations & Public Relations since the beginning of its electronic payment odyssey in Belgium with the Bancontact card.
