After six months, Blik has almost as many transactions as in the whole of last year

Dariusz Mazurkiewicz, CEO of the Polish Payment Standard, presented Blik's transaction results for the second quarter and summarized the first half of the year.

Even in 2015, when Blik just debuted in Poland, there were only 2 million transactions with this payment method. But a year later there were already 9 million. In 2017, Blik showed that it perfectly matched the payment tastes of Poles and boasted 33 million transactions. It's just that when presenting the results for Q2 2018, it turned out that 6 months was enough to equalize this result, and Blik ended the entire last year with 91 million transactions on the account.

The upward trend is also confirmed by the results after the first half of 2019. The number of transactions carried out using Blik at that time - 89 million - was comparable to those carried out throughout the previous year. Only in the second quarter of 2019, Blik can boast as many as 49.3 million transactions.

We have never had such a good quarter in our history - says Dariusz Mazurkiewicz.

Blik is growing stubbornly in every segment.

One of the most spectacular increases Blik recorded when it comes to transactions with ATMs. In Q2 2019 there were a total of 6 million. It's about 28 percent more than in Q1 (4.7 million transactions) and by 73% more from year to year.

At that time, Blik even more marked its role in transactions carried out at retail and service outlets. Here, Blik boasts 5 million transactions and a year-on-year increase of as much as 363 percent. It is also about 79 percent more compared to Q1 2019.

In the case of online transactions, Blik in Q2 2019 has a total of 34.7 million, which is a year-on-year increase of 168%, and compared to Q1 2019 - by 16%.

We will also see an increase when looking at the results of transfers to Blik's phone number. In Q2 2019 there were a total of 3.6 million, i.e. by 38 percent. more than in Q1 2019. Comparing year-to-year data, we are dealing in this case with an increase of 265 percent.

Half a billion transactions a year - that's the plan.

While presenting the results for the first half of 2019, including the second quarter, Dariusz Mazurkiewicz also outlined plans for the future. The ambition of the Polish Payment Standard is that every second transaction in e-commerce is carried out in Blik. In total, they target at least half a billion transactions a year.

Considering that the increase from 2 million to over 90 million transactions took Blik only 4 years - you have to take such declarations seriously. Especially since in Q2 2019, on average, 545,000 were made daily using Blik. transactions. It's about the same as last year, on the occasion of one of the most commercial moments of the year - Black Friday . The maximum number of transactions on one day in Q2 2019 is 759 thousand.

Blik visible more and more often.

Blik payments are becoming more common. It is hardly surprising, since such a method is already available in 20 thousand. ATMs across the country (95 percent) and in 484 thousand payment terminals (2/3 operating on our market).

New in the second half of the year.

Dariusz Mazurkiewicz also reported that they are constantly working on enabling Blik users to also make contactless payments. We will learn more about this in the second half of the year. And this will not be the only novelty. The issue of subscriber payments (Spotify, Netflix) or payment for services such as Uber is also to be explained. Blik's presence in foreign e-commerce remains to be solved.

Soon I will have good information for Poles in this context - promised the CEO of the Polish Payment System.
