How it works ?

According to the company, all companies will now seek a new mobile payment method (including those exceeding 50 euros), to maintain social distancing. Concretely, payments by QR code Paypal allow small businesses and occasional sellers to receive payments in store or in person with Paypal by simply showing their QR code to their customers, so that they can scan and make payment on site.

A practical payment system in grocery stores, pharmacies and other local shops, but also for companies that offer deliveries or kidnappings, such as restaurants and bars, not to mention service companies such as gardeners, tinkers or Simply baby-sitters. Obviously, beyond social distancing, payment via QR code also guarantees the security of payments, since users do not share their bank information.

On the operation side, merchants will be able to create, print and share a unique QR code to their company. The same QR code can be used for all customer purchases, because it is not necessary to create a separate code for each transaction. When customers scan the code, they are redirected to their Paypal account and therefore have only to enter the amount to pay.
