BLIK is a Polish mobile payment system that was established in 2015. It enables smartphone users to make payments in stationary and online stores.
I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the creation of the BLIK system. I have always been a supporter of technological progress - emphasised the head of the government. I am grateful to the Polish banking sector for the shifting of Poland from the paper to the digital system - he added.
