Sweden-based Seamless has partnered with bpost Bank to expand its mobile payment solution, SEQR, in Belgium.
Through this partnership, bpost bank will offer its customers the ability to connect SEQR’s mobile payment application to their bank account that allows them to make payments in stores and online quickly, securely and without any charges.
With this SEQR app, the user will be able to simply scan or tap a QR-code/NFC at the check-out of partnering merchants and approve the purchase by entering a PIN code.
SEQR is a generic payment method that enables merchants to lower their interchange fees significantly compared to those charged by traditional card companies.
bpost bank marketing and sales director, Frédéric Jonnart, said: "SEQR is a mobile payment solution which is unique in the Belgian marketplace. As a simple and free solution, SEQR accords with the values of bpost bank, who wants to provide products and services which are easy to use, secure and for everyone."
Belgium is the seventh market entry for SEQR after Sweden, Norway, Finland, Kuwait, Malaysia and Romania.
