QR Code Payment: Necessity for your UK Business

What is QR Code Payment

QR Code Payment(quick response code) is a machine-readable matrix bar code first designed in the 90s but adopted widely until recent years. However, the use of QR codes differs between regions.

QR code is generally used as a substitute for traditional bar code due to the greater storage capacity and is widely used for membership identification and order identification in most countries. Typical examples are Tesco Clubcard and digital concert tickets.

How popular is this payment?

In China, however, the most common use of QR codes is the integration with the financial system. QR code payment leapfrogged contactless payment with the development of WeChat Pay and Alipay, which has taken up more than 90% of China’s mobile payment market. Insufficient infrastructure (POS terminal) could not support the development of the “tap and go” payment method as in other countries and large populations and small-sized businesses accelerate the development of such technology. Transferring money and making payments by scanning QR codes has become a new habit of Chinese people.

The huge success of this payment in China encourages traditional card payment to develop such technology. Union Pay, the major card scheme in China has launched QuickPay supports it to enter the mobile payment market. Both Visa and MasterCard are promoting QR code payments in the UK. It is expected that QR code payment could become the next most popular payment alternative in the world.
