“Contactless payments by phone at ground terminals constitute the most convenient, safest and increasingly popular method of payment in the world. We wanted to create the best possible solution, and this was made possible by combining BLIK technology with the solutions created by Mastercard. The use of tokenization combined with mobile payments based solely on the user’s current account is a breakthrough in contactless payments. There is no longer any need to have any other physical payment instrument to be able to pay with a phone at a ground terminal. This solution will popularize mobile payments even more among people who have never done this before”, says Dariusz Mazurkiewicz, president of Polski Standard Płatności, operator of the BLIK system
“BLIK’s partnership with Mastercard is an example of exceptional, visionary cooperation on a worldwide scale. A combination of a fast-growing local player with a global company provides consumers with what is best in payments – convenience, security, innovative technology and global reach. Payments will be made by phone on the basis of the customer’s current account and will be available worldwide in terminals with the Mastercard logo”, says Zbigniew Jagiełło, member of Supervisory Board of Polish Payments Standard, former CEO of PKO Bank Polski and BLIK system originator.
“The adoption of mobile payments is growing every year. Mastercard is very excited to enhance BLIK’s mobile platform with our contactless technology and global reach. We are thrilled about this cooperation with the fastest growing payment solution in Poland. It is also yet another great example of Mastercard’s approach to working with fintech companies and how we help them scale their business. Now BLIK’s users have more convenient way to pay in-store here in Poland, but also around the world”, comments Bartosz Ciołkowski, general manager for Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia in Mastercard Europe
