Need to pay your bill? Not fun! But it has to be done. Thanks to Bancontact, you can now get it out of the way as quickly as possible.
Since the 29th of June, Nathalie Vandepeute (53) has been at the helm of the new Bancontact Payconiq Company. She will use her many years of experience to try and get as many Belgians as possible to pay using their mobile phones. Her main goal is to launch a unique, single payment app and to simplify electronic and mobile payments for consumers and merchants.
Minister Jan Jambon and Bancontact have published an information brochure explaining the optimised tax incentive offered to merchants who buy a payment terminal. Since 1 January 2018, the new law pertaining to company taxes means that the purchase of a payment terminal is now more interesting for the self-employed, independent professionals and SMEs.
In the summer of 2018, Bancontact Company and Payconiq Belgium will join forces in one single company 'Bancontact Payconiq Belgium'. Shareholders made the announcement on Tuesday, March 27, 2018.
PPRO Group, specialist in international online payments, becomes Bancontact acquirer. This gives merchants the opportunity to accept worldwide Bancontact payments, which gives an added boost to international sales. Because the transaction is all processed in one place, merchants can profit from benefits such as faster transactions, faster refunds and, most importantly, improved conversion rates.
