Bancontact - the most popular payment method in Belgium

For online and mobile payments

What is Bancontact?

Bancontact is the most popular online payment method in Belgium. Payment is completed in the customer’s own internet banking environment. It is a guaranteed payment method. In other words: the money is transferred directly and payment is irreversible. This online payment method is similar to the Dutch iDEAL. Belgian customers regularly pay in stores, restaurants and webshops via Bancontact with their smartphone by means of the Bancontact App. Or by using the Payconiq App.

How does Bancontact work?

A payment with Bancontact is similar to an iDEAL payment. The online payment process is carried out through a secure connection with the buyer’s trusted internet banking environment. The payment is completed and Buckaroo communicates the transaction status in realtime.


An additional advantage is that it is a direct and guaranteed payment, offering safety and security. For the buyer cannot reverse the payment.
