Online QR Payment Transactions

Understanding the QR payment transaction is very important for online merchants and therefore, we have elaborated on the process below. So, don’t miss to go through the following points:

  • The customer initiates the transaction by hovering their credit card or mobile device over the payment terminal. After that, the online payment gateway passes the information to the merchant processor.
  • The payment processor then checks the details of the transactions and passes it to the credit card network. There are many credit card networks that offer credit cards such as Visa MasterCard, American Express. Now, depending upon the credit card network, the merchant processor passes the information.
  • The credit card network of the consumer verifies the information and after that, the network sends the information to the cardholder’s bank account.
  • The credit card issuing bank checks every information minutely and after that, the bank checks the available credit. Depending upon the available credit, the transaction gets approved or declined.
  • The bank sends the final confirmation message after checking the account to the credit card network. The network then sends the same to the merchant processor solution.

So, this is how a QR payment transaction gets completed. However, the magstripe premium card does not support such transaction. So, if you want to make payments with QR code, you need to upgrade your cards. The new EMV cards consist of EMV chips that support contactless transactions. In addition to this, you can make contactless transactions with an online wallet. Yes, there are many wallets such as Google Pay, Apple Pay and Samsung Pay offering this feature to the customers.

If you want to accept QR code transaction, you must register yourself under a payment solution. Otherwise, you will not have your business QR code. A business QR code is something that consists of your account details. The customer will scan the QR code and after that, the payment will be deducted from the cardholder’s account and on the next business day, the merchant will receive the amount.
