Alternative Payment Solution: Blik

Summary

Blik is a Polish mobile payment solution launched by Polish Payment Standard (PSP) in February 2015. PSP was formed in 2013 through strategic co-operation by six major Polish banks: Alior Bank, Millennium Bank, Bank Zachodni WBK, ING Bank, mBank, and PKO Bank.

Blik is offered by Polish banks as an additional service within their mobile banking apps. It enables users to conduct payment transactions using a mobile phone, including online and in-store payments, cash deposits and withdrawals at ATMs, and P2P fund transfers. P2P transfers can be made through the mobile banking app by selecting the recipient from the user’s mobile address book. The solution is now used by 3.5 million customers of the participating banks. Online transactions accounted for 61% of total Blik transactions in Q1 2017, with ATM withdrawals the second most popular feature.

Blik is accepted at 180,000 POS terminals and 30,000 online stores across Poland. Payments can be made using two payment options: Blik Code and Blik Cheque. Blik Code is a one-time six-digit code, generated by logging into the mobile banking app, which is then entered at the POS terminal or online checkout page within 120 seconds of its generation. Alternatively, users can also make payments using Blik Cheque using a nine-digit cheque number and a PIN.
