Contactloos betalen is de trend van 2018

Brussel – 6 december 2018. Contactloos betalen is dé trend van 2018. Dat besluit Worldline, [Euronext: WLN], Europees leider op het vlak van betaal- en transactiediensten, uit de elektronische transactiecijfers. Niet onterecht, want het aantal contactloze betalingen is op een jaar tijd meer dan verzevenvoudigd. In oktober 2017 tikte de Belg zijn smartphone of Bancontact-bankkaart bijna 600.000 keer tegen een betaalterminal. In oktober 2018 ging het al om meer dan 4 miljoen transacties. Met de eindejaarperiode in het vooruitzicht, moedigt Worldline samen met de belangrijkste betaalschema’s de consument aan om zijn kerstaankopen contactloos te verrichten. Dat is veilig, snel en gemakkelijk.
