“The core idea that binds technology and payments is simplicity and convenience, and QR code is a great example. Having pioneered QR technology as a low-cost payments solution for open loop networks, and having worked with the government and the industry in developing BharatQR, Visa’s endeavour is to grow the acceptance network for BharatQR and make digital payments accessible to all.
