Over the last two years, contactless payments have become an essential payment method for businesses. Our changing environment has created the need to have less physical contact with payment devices when making or receiving payments. QR payments are one of the more popular options that have emerged because of the consumers changing needs.
The QR Code is an image that can be read by devices such as smartphones and tablet cameras. QR scanners on devices or within apps will either redirect purchasers to a payment gateway or use the associated wallet in the app to make payment.
QR codes serve many purposes, but one of the more convenient uses is to accept payments from customers. The transaction is encrypted, making it a secure way for customers to pay. Whilst QR codes make it easy for customers to scan and make payment, barcodes mostly track inventory, the cost of an item, and can only be read in-store by the retailer.
Netcash’s Scan to Pay solution allows customers to make payments with their smartphones by simply scanning a unique QR code using a wallet or banking app. Payments are made from a mobile phone, directly into your Netcash account and confirmation of payment is sent to you via email or SMS.
This solution makes it safe and easy to make payments and receive payments in-store, online and on the go.
Customers can choose from multiple wallets and banking apps to scan the unique QR code with ease. All the purchaser is required to do is open the wallet or banking app and scan the QR code. This will invoke the payment process.
