For those wanting to stay one step ahead of the competition, they’d better get on board when it comes to cashless payments. Cashless payments are on the rise in Belgium, especially mobile payments. We put together the most important data from recent studies for you.
Belgians tend to pay cashless more often than the average European. In the Netherlands, however, the number of cashless payments is twice as high.
According to the CEB, this is due to the fact that Belgians can’t always pay cashless. Respondents indicated that, even when they wanted to, it wasn’t always possible to pay without cash 20% of the time. In the Netherlands, on the other hand, customers can make use of cashless payment methods almost 90% of the time.
As a small independent business, it makes sense to introduce different payment methods. A classic payment terminal is a good start, but the real deals are being made with mobile payment apps.
Nowadays, mobile payments are possible through the Bancontact app, Payconiq, Glase (formerly known as SEQR) and Google Pay.
Whether you choose to use a traditional Bancontact device or are considering mobile payment apps for your business: you’ll need an internet connection for it to work.
