SEQR now available in nearly 500 Colruyt Group stores
Starting today, consumers can pay using the mobile payment service SEQR at all Colruyt Group stores in Belgium. This includes close to 500 stores at Colruyt, Okay, Bio-Planet, Cru, Dreamland and Dream Baby and affiliated independent Spar stores. Colruyt Group is one of Belgium's largest chain stores with an annual turnover of close to € 9 billion.
It was last autumn that Colruyt Group and SEQR started their collaboration. The first tests were made at selected e-commerce platforms and the cooperation has gradually expanded to now include all physical stores. So far, over 10,000 payments have been registered at Colruyt Group and the number of transactions increases every day, which have caused them to speed up the roll-out of the service in its stores.
