By Megha Bhattacharya
Sberbank, today, announced the addition of a new function to the Pay with QR service when accessed through Evotor POS terminals, by letting customers use their QR codes in addition to dynamic QR codes already available. The companies have expanded the functionality of the Pay with QR solution, thus making it convenient for businesses and customers.
Dmitry Malykh, Acquiring, and Bank Cards Director, Sberbank, said, “We’re putting much effort into developing QR payments because they are secure, convenient, and save our customers’ time. Recently, together with our partner Evotor, we have marketed a Smart-POS solution for small businesses and micro-enterprises, while now we are running a project for individuals, who can appreciate its convenience across more than 65,000 merchant locations throughout Russia.”
Sberbank explained that before making a purchase, users of the Sberbank Online mobile app generate a QR code inside the app, a merchant scans it with a QR code scanner or with a built-in camera inside an Evotor POS terminal. The app generates a new QR code every time and is stored only for a few seconds.
The QR codes allow customers to purchase products without the requirement for cash or bank cards. It also lets merchants cut merchant acquiring costs, with fees for small businesses and micro-enterprises ranging from 0.6% to 1.5% depending on the industry and improve revenue.
Yuri Yuryev, COO, IT company Evotor, said, “The first month of use of Pay with QR through Evotor has proven that the service is called for by businesses. QR technology lets you cut merchant acquiring and equipment costs when accepting cashless payments. To expand the use of the service, we are working on various user scenarios. Customers can now choose what’s more convenient for them, either to pay using the QR code the online checkout generates or get their own code.”
