Nowadays, we live in a world marked by technology. We are going through what is known as the digital and technological revolution, which is marked by mobile phones or Smartphones, which allow us to perform and carry out endless operations, such as communicating with our contacts, ordering food or other products, shopping online in minutes, etc.
To perform these actions, we not only need mobile phones or Smartphones, it also requires a virtual wallet which offers us quick and easy payment methods.
One of these methods is payment with QR code (Quick Response code).
What is payment by QR?
The QR payment is an evolution of the bar code of all life. It is a contactless payment method that offers an alternative to paying with cash.
Thanks to the QR code, we can read and store information, additional or not, in a dot matrix or a two-dimensional bar code, with the objective of facilitating and accelerating payments for consumers.
It is a form of payment that allows transactions to be made without the use of cash or cards and with the opportunity to access discounts and promotions.
How does it work?
To begin with, the user must transmit the data of the bank accounts and cards, to the system of the application that will be used to use the QR payments, such as the Shasta App.
Then, he will scan the code from one of these Apps when paying in a store. Once scanned, the user will be able to choose the payment method from his mobile phone.
For this step to be carried out, a debit or credit card must first be inserted in the virtual wallet.
What advantages do we get with QR payments?
- They capture the attention of consumers as it is an original and innovative tool.
- Immediacy in transmitting and receiving the corresponding information.
- It offers a loyalty advantage as it can be used in promotions, coupons or discount campaigns in order to build up the loyalty of our users.
- It offers security and convenience.
- For stores and small merchants, the use of QR payment is an advantage since it is a method that does not imply commission for the seller, unlike debit cards.
