Accelerated by the pandemic, in-store consumer payment preferences have shifted towards touchless options. One solution experiencing growth in recent years is QR codes, which have increasingly been used to initiate fast and easy touchless mobile payments at the point-of-sale.

In the latest episode, Simon Kleine (Director of Communications), Brian Byrne (Director of Engagement and Operations) and Bastien Latge (Director of Technology) explore the rise of QR code payments and how the EMV® QR Code Specifications enable quick, reliable and trusted transactions for both merchants and consumers. Bastien also speaks to Johan Buitendag, Strategy and Research Manager at the Payment Association of South Africa, to learn about the development of QR code payments in the region.
