    • Belgium – Paradise of Desserts
      From Liege waffle to Godiva chocolate, the desserts in Belgium are known to all the world. In addition, the “Paradise of Desserts” also presents you with the bronze statue of urinating child, a national hero, Tintin, a wise and brave cartoon figure, as well as magnificent and grand Palace of Brussels, Bruges known as “the most beautiful scenery city in Europe”, and Antwerp, a fashionable and avant-garde port city. Why not take your UnionPay card (card number starting with 62) to explore the typical Belgium?
    • POS acceptance
      UnionPay merchants in Belgium are mainly diamond outlets and jewelry stores in Antwerp, Ghent, Brussels, Brugge, and Maasmechelen discount village. These merchants display  signage. Sincethat some of the merchants have yet to put up the UnionPay signage, cardholders may show their UnionPay cards upon the till and inquire about UnionPay acceptance.

      When using co-branded cards, you are advised to choose UnionPay as the routing option to be benefited from the special offers and services provided by UnionPay.


      Note:Some UnionPay card acceptors or acquirers route co-branded cards  to corresponding card shcem according to the card BIN, which means co-branded cards transactions aren't routed to UnionPay without selection by cardholders and merchant cashiers. Please refer to the transaction results for the information about transaction routing.

    • Charges
      No conversion fee is applied to payments or cash withdrawal made by UnionPay cards or via UnionPay network. The transaction value in local currency will be directly converted to RMB based on the market exchange rate.

      ATM commission fee consists of two separate fees:
      (1)Service fee charged by the issuer: please consult your issuer for details.
      (2)Service fee charged by the ATM acquirer in Belgium: some ATMs will charge commission fee, which is charged by the local banks in Belgium and which has nothing to do with UnionPay or the issuer.

      Cash withdrawal via debit card results in a lower commission fee.

    • Tips

      Be alert to your surroundings before conducting any banking transactions.
      Keep a close eye on your credit card during transaction to avoid any illegal activities.

    • Code Of Conduct
      In 2015, the Interchange Fee Regulation (EU/2015/751) (“IFR”) came into force in EU, requiring a separation between card schemes and processing entities in terms of accounting, organization and decision-making processes. Such IFR applies to card-based payment transactions carried out within EU, where both the payer's payment service provider and the payee's payment service provider are located therein.

      UnionPay therefore comes up with this code of conduct to help UnionPay staff understand the requirements of the IFR and provide guidance for such staff to be fully compliant as it relates to such aforementioned transactions only.

      This Code of Conduct will take effect on February 7, 2018. If there are questions or concerns about this Code of Conduct, please feel free to contact UnionPay Legal and Compliance Section at Legalteam@unionpayintl.com.
