OnePay: QR & Online Payments

Direct Payments: QR based

What are the benefits of a direct payment QR based for your Business?

Simple set-up and no expensive hardware

As a business retailer, you may have been through the whole card reader experience – expensive hardware, monthly contract fees and minimum deposits.

When you’re trying to keep costs down or are looking for something more versatile, bulky card readers are an expensive way to take payments. With QR codes, setting up a payment solution is so much easier and faster.

By using a QR code payment system like OneCash, all you need to do is download the OneCash app. Forget about buying expensive hardware or monthly contract fees – if you have a mobile device, you can immediately start accepting payments.

This is also incredibly useful if you have several employees in different locations.

With a QR code payment app, each employee just needs to download the app on their phone and they’ll be able to accept payments too. All payments will be deposited into one account, making it very easy to manage from one location.

With QR codes, Elias, owner of a taxi, takes QR-based payments with just his phone.

Accept payments anywhere and at any time

QR codes are one of the most versatile ways to accept payments. With OneCash, you can use both static and dynamic QR codes.

Static QR codes are QR codes that do not move and can be printed for outside purposes, on signs, menus, hotel rooms, marketing materials and TV screens. Dynamic QR codes are one-time generated QR codes that are scanned and paid immediately.  

With static and dynamic QR codes, your customers can complete payments without you even being present, which helps speed up payments and allows you to serve more customers.

 Our QR code payments allow businesses of all sizes to accept not only OneCash but also Visa and Mastercard, at favourable rates, and all from one centralised system.

You’ll no longer need to keep track of separate systems and manage sets of Excel spreadsheets, all your payments are on one dashboard.

Take faster payments and serve more customers

In the world of same-day delivery and self-checkouts, customers no longer have the patience to wait for their items.

Whether it’s an online delivery or in-person order, QR code payments help you speed up payments and therefore increase the number of customers you can serve.

“QR codes are the answer to the problem because customers don’t need to queue up in a line – you can put the QR code anywhere, outside, inside, anywhere – all they need to do is scan it and then pay for it. I benefit from it because you can virtually do anything with it.”

By displaying a QR code right in front of your shop, customers can access and order through an online menu. You don’t need to manually take their order, making it easier and faster to prepare their meal and deliver it to them.

 Implement better security

When you’re dealing with several payment systems, it’s often hard to make sure everything is secure.

With QR codes, it’s completely different. Not only do you have one centralised system with QR codes, but payments are also a lot more secure than other transactions such as cash.

With a QR code payment, all information is encrypted and no customer details are stored on file.  

As you can imagine, QR codes are also gaining popularity due to recent social distancing regulations. By using QR codes to transfer payments, merchants and customers no longer need to handle cash.

A restaurant can simply print out a static QR code, set it down on a table and allow customers to scan and pay from a safe distance. This type of payment means both customers and merchants can work in a safe, secure and convenient environment.
