QR codes in Vipps MobilePay
Available for Vipps now.
Available for MobilePay in selected markets at the Vipps MobilePay joint platform launch.
Every Vipps user has a personal QR code that is available in their app. From the home screen, the user taps the Show QR button, and they are presented with a page showing their personal QR.
If your Point of Sale (POS) is equipped with a 2D QR scanner, you can scan the user's code to get their identity. This is called Merchant Scan.
The QR currently contains a URL like this:
4791234567 is their phone number in
However, in December 2023, the phone number will be replaced by a token which can be used for initiating payments.
If your Point of Sale (POS) is equipped with a QR scanner, then your customers scan the code, get exactly where they need to go and pay on their own. Alternatively, your cashier can scan the QR to get their phone number into your system instantly. You can then prepare and initiate payments using the ePayment API.
See In-store payments for an example flow.
