  • Cashless payment service


KV Mechelen offers home game visitiors with a registered ticket the ability to pay for the purchase of certain goods and services in the stadium (including but not limited to the purchase of food and drinks) with (the RFID-chip in) their cashless payment card.

If you want to make use of this "cashless payment service", you first need to activate the service via the "My Ticket" page, by clicking on the "Pay" button. This will lead you to another page where you can administer the service.

Firstly, you have to select one or more "credit-packs" to top up your account.

Secondly, you have to determine the payments service you want to use, in order to "pay" for the credit-packs you selected.

You will then be taken to a page where you have to choose your payment method. Depending on your choice of payment method, you will have to agree with the specific terms and conditions as determined by the according payment provider (governing the direct contractual relation between you and the payment provider).

After choosing PayPal as your payment method, you’ll be transferred to another page, where you’ll be offered a "PayPal billing agreement", to be accepted if you want to use the cashless payment service, authorizing PayPal to execute future automated top-ups. Acceptance of that agreement generates a contract directly between you and PayPal.

By clicking the "agree and continue" button, the cashless payment service will automatically be activated and you will be retransferred to the "My Ticket" page, where you get an overview of your "top-ups", consumptions and balance.

When arriving at the stadium, your "consumable" ( = total amount of "top ups" that can be spent) will automatically be linked to your cashless payment card and you’ll be able to pay with it at the goods and service providers accepting the cashless payment service.
