  • The government is taking steps to increase the use of digital payments in Belgium. Belgian financial federation Febelfin (in collaboration with its payment partners and trade federations) launched Belgium’s first Digital Payment Day on May 11, 2019. The initiative aims to increase financial awareness and knowledge among Belgians and encourages consumers to make digital payments. The initiative also aims to enable more merchants to accept digital payments. Via the Digital Payment Day website, Febelfin offers information for merchants regarding the best digital payment method for their business, as well as providing consumers with information on various digital payment solutions. Digital payments in Belgium are being supported by increasing use of mobile wallets including Apple Pay, Google Pay, and PayPal as well as the Payconiq by Bancontact app.
  • Digital-only banks are gradually making inroads into the Belgian banking and debit card space. In February 2020, digital-only bank Aion launched in Belgium. The bank offers a multi-currency debit card, enabling users to make card payments and ATM withdrawals with no currency conversion costs. Meanwhile, international digital-only banks are making their way into Belgium. In October 2019, Netherlands-based digital-only bank bunq expanded its services across European countries including Belgium. Apart from a debit card, consumers are also offered a credit card and a Mastercard Travel Card (a credit card that eliminates foreign transaction fees for payments in foreign currencies). NiCKEL – the digital bank owned by BNP Paribas – plans to launch its operations in Belgium in the first quarter of 2022.
  • Banks are counting on digital channels to tap into new customer bases. In November 2020, KBC Bank launched AI-based chatbot Kate for its customers in Belgium. The chatbot supports both chat and voice assistance to provide banking services to KBC customers, including assistance regarding money transfers and insurance documentation.
