Belgacom, BNP to test Sixdots m-payment service in January

Friday 8 November 2013 | 13:45 CET | News
Belgacom and BNB Paribas Fortis have unveiled the brand name Sixdots for their mobile payments service announced earlier this year. The name is a reference to the six-digit PIN code that will be used, in addition to other security measures, for confirming payments. Sixdots will work via a mobile app that will be available to all smartphone users with a bank card from any bank established in Belgium and a mobile data subscription from any Belgian operator. In addition to supporting on-site payments, Sixdots can be integrated into apps for online purchases. Traders will be charged a small fee
