Traditional, open-loop payment options are no longer enough as consumers expect choice, convenience and safe ways to pay. Adding closed-loop payment types, such as wallets, prepaid cards, vouchers, and more, provides multiple benefits to retailers.

Improve loyalty
Give your customers seamless payment experiences

Accept more payment types
Offer customers more payment options at your till points

Reduce interchange fees
Closed-loop payment options can result in lower interchange fees and a lower burden of compliance


Attracting new merchants through competitive pricing is tough. QR acceptance can help to differentiate your acquiring portfolio. The opportunities presented by QR code functionality puts you ahead of your competition, and at the same time drives adoption of your banking app.
