We all know the typical situation: you’ve paid the bill for your friend and despite your many reminders, he forgets to pay you back. No apologies anymore from now on, because paying someone back remotely now becomes easier than ever. With the Payconiq by Bancontact app, you can send payment requests.

Via the ‘Receive’ button, in addition to the ‘Receive now’ option which allows you to create a QR code, there is a new option: ‘Send a payment request’. You simply fill in the amount with a personalized message. You can then easily share this request via a message, WhatsApp, email or any other message tool of your choice. The person that receives your request, gets a message with a link and can immediately reimburse you – even remotely – via the Payconiq by Bancontact app or another app that facilitates Payconiq-payments. You can send the same request to more than one person and follow up the transaction history of the reimbursements via the ‘Payment request’ menu.
