Pay with PayPal by scanning the QR code: here's how to do it with PayPal
One of the reasons why many Chinese products take so long to accept NFC for mobile payments is because in China, mobile payments are made us ing QR codes. Institutions have a user scan card, and the user can easily send money to the s tore from their mobile phone.
This system is a lot more complicated than NFC billing, which is very easy to use, but still allows us to avoid all possible connections (for example, when we pay NFC rates above 20 euros, recently 50, forcing us to enter our PIN dolphin). And PayPal has decided to embrace this technology.
From now on, the PayPal app features a button called Scan. Pressing this button will activate the camera, scanning the QR code of the store where we will make the purchase. After that, we enter the amount to be paid from the mobile phone, send it to and indicate the combination of the store employee to confirm the purchase.
One of the problems this PayPal function has is that it is almost invalid in physical institutions. The company wants to encourage small business to use this payment method, withholding commissions per transaction until September 13 (after a day, it becomes 10 cents + 0.9%), it is a good chance that small businesses can use wireless payments at no cost during these difficult months.
