Belfius, How does it work?

Belfius is a banking payment method, meaning a customer has a bank account at Belfius and can use Belfius as a payment method. Belfius is pretty similar to any bank payment. A customer chooses to pay with Belfius, authenticates their account, and confirms to pay.

The payment method Belfius can only be processed on our new Payment page starting with PayV2.

In case a customer makes a successful payment but does not press the button to return to the webshop, we do not receive the status update and therefore the transaction status remains initialized. However, we import our bank statements daily and all incoming payments which have not been completed yet will then be completed.
