How to Accept Bancontact Payments

Bancontact, founded in 1979 and formerly known as Bancontact/Mister Cash, is a bank redirect payment method offered by more than 80% of online businesses in Belgium.

Bancontact payments are authenticated by customers and immediately confirmed to your business. Using their mobile app, customers can identify by scanning a QR code presented at the time of payment.
