GERMANY - THE NETHERLANDS | From now on, Belgian consumers can pay e-invoices with a single mouse click, with One Click Pay and Maestro. UnifiedPost, PaySquare and Paybox are launching this new, fast online payment method in conjunction with MasterCard for the Belgium market. Energy supplier Eni Belgium is the first to offer this new payment method to its customers.
e-Invoice Payments with a Single Mouse Click
One Click Pay eliminates the need to enter invoice reference numbers, amounts and account information. Only the initial email invoice needs to be paid using the Maestro debit card and the bank?s card reader for authentication. Subsequent payments can be done without the need to re-enter the Maestro card number or use the reader. In subsequent invoices the same card information is automatically populated and encrypted, allowing the customer to make future payments quickly and securely with a single mouse click. Customers remain in control of their budget at all times by checking and approving each e-bill. Invoices are stored in PDF format in an online archive for two years.
Perfect for Returning Consumers and Recurring Payments
The tool is suited for business with a large number of recurring invoices, for example energy, water and telecommunications providers and subscription/membership online merchants. With One Click Pay, businesses can simplify the invoicing processes and offer their customers ultimate payment convenience, facilitating faster payment as a result.
Online Maestro in Belgium
The international MasterCard debit brand Maestro is present on almost every Belgian issued debit card (next to Belgian's domestic payment method Bancontact / Mister Cash) and requires online banking capability and (at least the first time) consumer authentication. Maestro authentication takes places using MasterCard's 3D Secure technology. Belgian consumers are already used to pay online using their Maestro card since 2009.
'Simplicity in Energy'
Retail Director Jan Dobbenie of Eni: “One Click Pay is right in line with our motto, „simplicity in energy?. As a supplier of electricity and natural gas, we want to make a difference by offering our customers simple and innovative solutions. This new payment method is a perfect example of this.”
'Fast and easy payment solution for today?s consumer'
David Dechamps, General Manager Benelux of MasterCard: “We wanted to bring a fast and easy payment solution for today?s consumer which would also result in a reduction in late payments for businesses. This tool is available on the web right now but will soon be accessible on a variety of devices, including the smartphone.”
