2021 was a very successful year for Digicash by Payconiq: with 40% more users and 60% more transactions, and with Banque Raiffeisen getting on board this summer, the app now covers the vast majority of retail banks in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
Since the takeover of Digicash in August 2017, Payconiq has now successfully embedded itself in the payment habits of Luxembourg users. Thanks to the strong partnership with Luxembourg banks and merchants who have been key in building on the considerable efforts made over the past few years, Payconiq has achieved its goal of creating one of the most advanced mobile payment platforms in Europe.
As a natural progression, from now on the brand is to be known as Payconiq, replacing the name Digicash by Payconiq. From today, users will be able to see the new logo on their favorite digital payment solution. In this way, and as James King, Head of Payconiq Luxembourg is delighted to say: “This new identity anchors Payconiq as a leader in the Luxembourg landscape and promises great prospects for development not only in the Grand Duchy but also on a European scale, which has made it possible for Luxembourg and cross-border users to make payments in the Benelux countries since December 2020.”
Payconiq International is a Luxembourg-based mobile payment fintech active in Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Belgium – the latter through Bancontact Payconiq Company. Payconiq International works closely with major retail banks, providing them with a strong payment initiation platform based on the Single Euro Payment Area (SEPA) Credit Transfer. A SEPA Credit Transfer is a payment that debits a euro account and credits another euro account in the SEPA zone. Payconiq International benefits from the support of some of Europe’s leading financial institutions. Payconiq is the first European payment solution that allows consumers to pay invoices, online, in-store and other individuals using a smartphone. Since the solution is directly linked to the user’s bank account, no sensitive financial data is stored on the phone or on merchant sites.
