The Bancontact Payconiq Company reported a sharp increase in mobile payments in Belgium in August, to 11.5 million. That's equal to one payment for every person in Belgium and twice the number of transactions as in August 2019. The mobile payment service based on Bancontact bank cards has seen a significant increase in use since the coronavirus outbreak and is promoted further in an ad campaign underway this month.
