In VK projects, users can now pay for purchases and services by QR-code. This opportunity is implemented in the framework of joint work of VK Pay and the National Payment Card System. This was reported by the company’s press service on the official website.
You can pay for purchases so far only in a number of VK ecosystem services, including Classmates, VKontakte, My World and partly Mail.ru Games. In the future, the list of services that support such payments will be expanded. To use this function, you will need to select the SBU item in the VK Pay service, after which the system will generate a QR code.
When you open the page on your smartphone, you just need to press the button to go to payment, then you will be redirected to the bank application. In this case, all details and data will be filled in automatically, all that remains is to confirm the payment. When opening a QR code on a laptop or PC, you need to scan it with a camera on a mobile device.
Andriy Yefimochkin, Director of Financial and Payment Technologies of VK, commented on the innovations:
Payment by QR-code is convenient and secure. This data is not passed on to third parties, payments are made instantly. You do not need to dial the card number manually – so it does not take time.
