QR Codes are two dimensional barcodes made of pixelated black and white squares, designed to be read by a mobile phone camera. While there are many different uses for QR codes, one of the most common uses is to make mobile payments. Especially now that mobile shopping is on the rise, retailers are looking for more ways to incorporate QR codes into the in-store shopping experience.
What’s great about QR codes is the convenience and ease of use they allow both sides of the transaction. All you need is a mobile phone with a camera, a mobile app that can scan, store, and share QR codes and you’re ready to make secure payments in seconds.
Some of the most common ways to make payments using QR codes are:
- Paying retailers with QR scanners
- Paying retailers without QR scanners
- Paying individuals
