The bank introduced the payment solution to ensure a hassle-free shopping experience and transaction for customers and merchants, a statement from the bank stated on Tuesday.
It is done by scanning a unique QR code displayed by the merchant or PoS device. Each code will have unique details containing the information relating to the transaction and will link with the shopper’s mobile app already enabled on their smartphone.
Commenting on the service, the Managing Director of FCMB, Mrs Yemisi Edun, affirmed the Bank’s commitment to deploying innovative solutions that move individuals, businesses and the economy forward.
