How to use the Paysera QR code feature for payments?

But did you know they're not just for checking menus or accessing information? In this blog post, we're going to show how you can use them for payments – for sending and receiving.

QR stands for "quick response," emphasising its speedy reading capability. Using your smartphone, you can scan a specific QR code. The specific QR code can lead you to different sources, such as a website, discounts, and contact information.

Speaking of the QR feature on Paysera specifically, using our app, you can make payments and access your own unique code for receiving funds.

If you’re not one to scramble for cash or rummage through your wallet for card details, this might just be the perfect feature for you. With QR payments, the process is streamlined – simply scan the pre-generated QR code containing all the necessary payment information.
