ABN Amro's payment app Tikkie passes half a million users

Less than a year after it was first introduced, pay-back app Tikkie has reached and passed the landmark of half a million users. This makes Tikkie the fastest-growing payment app in the Netherlands.

Tikkie is used mostly for sharing bills between friends, family members and colleagues. Most tikkies are sent to pay for dinners, drinks, holidays or presents. Many users rate the payment app highly enough to recommend it to friends, and a survey shows that 74% of its users score the app 9 or better (out of 10).

After Tikkie was introduced for retail users in June 2016, the first commercial partnership was launched in February 2017: customers of airline company Transavia can now use Tikkie to pay when purchasing additional services online or by mobile device, for example selecting a seat or booking an extra suitcase. When Transavia customers use Tikkie for paying, their orders are completed and paid within a little over an hour.

ABN AMRO’s Chief Digital Officer Frank Verkerk comments, ‘We’re very pleased that Tikkie has become so popular. We wanted to create an app that made it less awkward to ask people to pay you back. With half a million users in less than a year’s time, we’re clearly heading in the right direction. And every week we’re contacted by more companies that want to start using Tikkie.’
