Spanish clothing company Inditex is planning to implement a new retail payment system that uses mobile phones and QR codes. Consumers who scan QR codes at store terminals will be able to use Inditex's InWallet mobile payment service, making it easy to carry out payments that don't involve any physical cash.
This QR code service will be launched across all of Inditex’s retail brands, including Zara, Zara Home, Pull&Bear and Massimo Dutti.
While it may seem as though QR codes have recently taken a backseat with the rise of contactless payments and wearable technology, many of these systems have yet to be adopted by the public and stores on a large scale. QR codes remain easily accessible to consumers with smartphones.
