FLOA is expanding its presence in Belgium

For over twenty years, FLOA has been making life easier for French customers and businesses by simplifying payments. And thanks to the confidence shown by our partners, we are now the leader in instalment payments in France. With our expertise, along with the support of BNP Paribas, the leading bank in the euro zone, we are deploying our solutions and know-how in Belgium. Our goal is to help Belgian online merchants boost their sales and meet their customers’ new expectations.

What are European consumption habits?

According to a Kantar1 carried out in November 2021 for FLOA, three quarters of Europeans make at least one online purchase every month. And some 76% in Belgians make online purchases several times a week.

In this context, the payment stage is a major issue. A large majority of buyers are disappointed by the refusal of a payment method by a business. Payment solutions are becoming essential! 66% of online consumers want the option of payment solutions (payments in instalments, Buy Now Pay Later, etc.). Over half of Europeans are even prepared to change businesses in order to access this type of service, and it’s out of the question for them to download an app to finalise their purchases.

Belgians’ expectations for payment solutions

So how are Belgians consuming online? Firstly, in European terms, Belgians are enthusiastic users of bank cards for their purchases. Over 80% of Belgians use their bank cards every day. So it’s essential for them to be able to pay for their online purchases by card.

Belgium is also the leading country in terms of Buy Now Pay Later solutions. Belgians are particularly keen on this payment solution, notably in order to be able to deal with unforeseen events.

And almost half of them are prepared to change stores for one that provides a split payment solution, again, according to our Kantar1 study.
