What is a QR code?

A QR code or Quick Response code is a barcode that contains information about the user who will perform a transaction. The MyCash QR code will allow you to make payments and/or receive money with the MyCash App simply by scanning the code with your phone.

You will be able to find your personal QR code in your MyCash App in the tab named “My QR”.

 

What is the difference with a Merchant’s QR code?

A merchant’s QR code is the QR code you find displayed at a Merchant’s cashier counter for making QR Payments.  You will be able to scan the Merchant’s QR code and complete your transaction by selecting “Pay” and scanning the code in your MyCash App; or keying in the Merchant’s displayed mobile number.

Please click here for the latest list of Merchants where you can use MyCash QR Pay.
