A mobile application that can be used to scan and pay postal cheques was used around 40% more last year than in 2020, state-owned postal company Magyar Posta, which developed the app, said on Friday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The app, called iCsekk, was used to pay almost HUF 110 bln of bills, Magyar Posta said.

Magyar Posta earlier attributed the increase in the app's popularity to upgrades as well as changed consumer habits because of the pandemic.
