Even though many retailers were exploring contactless payment solutions pre-pandemic, options like QR code payments are taking on new significance as people look for touch-free ways to complete everyday purchases. PayPal recently introduced QR code payments in Canada to support in-person selling experiences that are safe and secure. Knowing that people are eager to return to salons, farmer's markets and their favorite local stores, PayPal introduced this new feature to its official app so that vendors can be supported without the need for any new equipment purchases to be made.
As consumers have virtually stopped using cash and coins for months now, more consumers are becoming open to defaulting to mobile payments as part of their regular shopping routines.
