Bancontact Expands Its Payment Solutions with One-Click and Recurring Payments via Buckaroo

Utrecht, 23 July 2020 - Payment Service Provider Buckaroo is expanding its payment products with Bancontact Wallet Initiated Payments (WIP). Parties that process Belgian payments via Buckaroo can now use One-Click-Payments and Recurring Payments via Bancontact, making online payments even faster and easier for Belgian consumers.


"Listening to the wishes and needs of merchants when it comes to constantly improving the shopping experience is our objective," underlines Nathalie Vandepeute, CEO of Bancontact Payconiq Company. "The ability to store Bancontact card data for recurring and one-click payments is a challenge we would like to address in cooperation with Buckaroo."



What is Bancontact WIP?

As a local player, Bancontact Payconiq Company offers secure payment solutions, tailored to the needs of every merchant. The Bancontact card is the reference for electronic payments, with over 1.43 billion transactions in Belgium in 2019.

Bancontact WIP (Wallet Initiated Payments) is an additional service provided by Bancontact. This function has been developed at the request of merchants in order to make the shopping experience even easier for consumers. Following a one-time registration of the Bancontact card, the service makes it possible to perform transactions without 3D-Secure authentication.

This has a direct conversion effect, as the steps to complete a transaction are reduced significantly. It makes one-click checkout possible and recurring payments easier.


One-Click and Recurring Payments

The Bancontact Wallet has two basic functions. One-Click-Payments, a fast-checkout function that allows consumers who have previously chosen to save their payment details to complete a payment with a single click. In addition, the Recurring Payments solution takes care of recurring payments, payments in parts and subscriptions. Recurring payments can be processed automatically via the Bancontact Wallet without the consumer being asked for a payment confirmation every time.


Low-risk, High-volume

Bancontact will offer this service only to low-risk, high-volume merchants, with a minimum of 25,000 Bancontact transactions per quarter. If you qualify for Bancontact Wallet Initiated Payments, it is possible to use the Bancontact One-Click-Payments and Bancontact Recurring functions. Every merchant will have to go through an official WIP application process that Buckaroo will supervise.
