Hangzhou Citizen Card Company added a quick response (QR) code-based payment option to its mobile app on Apr 6.
The card, which is used for an assortment of business contexts, allows users to pay both online and offline, differing from that of traditional internet companies. Consumers can either swipe their cards or have their QR codes embedded in the app scanning to make their payments. Passwords are needed for using the QR code feature for the first time. The app also allows users to check their bills.
The QR code payment function is now available at 36 stores of Louwailou Restaurant chain, 18 Baodao Jindian café shops for 50% discounts.
