Belgian bank Belfius is rolling out a service that lets users make payment requests through Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.
Available in the Belfius mobile app as well as being directly accessible from Facebook Messenger, the Pengo service is open to everyone with a Belgian current account.
Users generate a payments request and share it with single click with the recipient via WhatsApp, Messenger, email or SMS.
The recipient receives the request through their preferred medium and can confirm payment with their password in their Belfius Mobile app or via the app of Belgian payment scheme Bancontact.
