Blik: Competitor Profile


Blik is a Polish mobile payment solution launched by Polski Standard P?atno?ci (PSP) in February 2015. PSP was formed in 2013 through strategic co-operation between six major Polish banks: Alior Bank, Millennium Bank, Bank Zachodni WBK (now Santander), ING Bank, mBank, and PKO Bank. In April 2020, Mastercard became a shareholder of PSP and Blik. All seven shareholders now hold an equal share in PSP.
Blik is offered by Polish banks as an additional service within their mobile banking apps. It enables users to conduct payment transactions using a mobile phone, including online and in-store payments, cash deposits and withdrawals at ATMs, and P2P fund transfers. The solution is now used by 9 million customers of the participating banks. Online transactions accounted for 72.2% of total Blik transactions in 2019, with ATM withdrawals the second most popular feature, followed by payments at point of sale (POS) terminals and P2P transfers.
Blik is accepted at over 20,000 ATMs and 538,000 POS terminals across Poland. Payments can be made using two payment options: Blik Code and Blik Cheque. Blik Code is a one-time six-digit code that is generated by logging into the mobile banking app; the code is entered at the POS terminal or online checkout page. Blik Cheque allows users to make payments using a nine-digit cheque number and a PIN.
Blik has various partnerships with complementary businesses, which have helped the company stay competitive in the market. In March 2020, Blik partnered with payment solutions provider Adyen, enabling Adyen’s partner merchants to accept payments via Blik.
