Belgian mobile payments app Sixdots has launched its digital payments wallet supported by the main mobile banks and mobile operator Proximus.
Customers can register a bank card to their wallet, and set up a six-digit pin to authenticate transactions. After that, payments can be made by scanning a QR-code and entering the pin. Sixdots supports online, in-app, in-store and peer-to-peer payments.
Bantcontact/Mister Cash, the main system for card payments in the country, cooperated in the development of Sixdots. In time, other partners and payments systems will also be integrated into Sixdots, and more services will be added next year.
