MADRID, Aug. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SafetyPay, a secure cash payment platform, has announced the start of its operations in Belgium. By entering this European country SafetyPay is now present in 21 countries in Europe and the Americas (North, Central and South).
The start of operations in Belgium was among the company's priorities and fulfills one of its business objectives, which is the expansion of its operations in Europe. In order to ensure its success in Belgium, SafetyPay has adjusted to the reality and features of this country, with a view to providing it with custom-made products and strategies.
