PayPal rolls out new QR code feature in 28 countries

PayPal has rolled out a new QR code feature in 28 countries.

In a bid to help stop the spread of coronavirus through through cash payments, the mobile app now let's users make payments at stores and everywhere else by scanning QR code by screen or on a piece of paper using a smartphone's camera.

The likes of Visa, Mastercard and Walmart already use QR codes to take payment without contact.

The new tool arrived on the new version of the PayPal app, which launched on Tuesday (19.05.20).

Some of the countries include the US, UK, Canada, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Australia.

PayPal has also wavered the standard seller transaction fee on any sales using QR codes for a limited time, seemingly during the pandemic.
