The telecommunications company Orange has become the first operator in Spain to incorporate Bizum into its means of payment.

 

According to the press release, Orange has entrusted BBVA, one of its benchmark institutions, to expand its method of payment offers in Spain. With the incorporation of Bizum, the telecommunications operator aims to offer its customers an additional means of payment that facilitates user experience thanks to a simpler process that reduces the average purchase time. 

Therefore, Orange customers will be able to pay certain transactions through this system that includes initial or advance payments, terminal instalment sales or recoveries, among others.

Furthermore, Bizum, an innovative payment method that was launched in Spain in 2016, has become one of the most widely used methods nationally, touting over 13 million active users and more than 269 million transactions. Despite the fact that this service for companies has only been available since November 2019, many have already launched it with BBVA.
