Payconiq, the mobile payment service for online, on-the-go and direct payments, has relocated its headquarters to Luxembourg. The company started in Amsterdam where Payconiq was founded and has thrived under the wings of ING’s innovation hub. Starting today, Payconiq will continue as an independent entity, putting down roots in the ‘payments capital’ of Europe.

Luxembourg will act as Payconiq’s central hub for the countries in which it is active and drive the company’s continued expansion in Europe. Following the relocation, Payconiq is supervised by the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (“CSSF”), the supervisory authority for the financial sector of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
European expansion directed from Luxembourg with the support of international banks
Along with the move, Payconiq, as sole entity, has received investment from ING, KBC and Belfius as shareholders. In the near future, more international operating banks will participate in the mobile payment service provider.
Duke Prins, Payconiq CEO: “The relocation of our headquarters to the heart of Western Europe is a new step in the development of Payconiq as a European payment service. With a number of powerful international banks as shareholders, we will be able to accelerate our growth throughout Europe.”
Payconiq is already active on the Belgian market and will soon enter the Dutch market. In Luxembourg, the company has joined forces with the Luxembourg fintech startup Digicash Payments, a mobile payments service offered by a number of banks in Luxembourg. Thanks to the cooperation with Digicash, customers will be able to use Payconiq for online, on-the-go and direct payments right across the Benelux in 2018.
