Contactless payment is THE trend in 2018
Brussels – 6 December 2018. Contactless payment is THE trend in 2018. This is the conclusion reached by Worldline, [Euronext: WLN], the European leader in payment and transaction services, based on electronic transaction figures – and not unduly, because the number of contactless payments has gone up sevenfold in a year’s time. In October 2017, Belgians ticked their smartphones or Bancontact bank card nearly 600,000 times against a payment terminal. In October 2018, more than 4 million such transactions were conducted. With the year-end period in sight, Worldline is, together with the leading payment schemes, encouraging consumers to pay for their Christmas shopping contactless. It is safe, fast and easy.
