How does the ‘scan QR code’ payment work?

Scan QR code payment involves using the smartphone’s camera to scan a Quick Response (QR) code, which contains payment information such as the recipient’s details and payment amount. Once the QR code is scanned, the payment app or mobile banking app decodes the information and facilitates the transaction.

Here’s how scan QR code payment typically works in the Airtel Thanks app:

  1. The recipient (merchant, individual, or organization) generates a QR code containing the payment details. This QR code is often displayed at the point of sale or provided on invoices, bills, or websites.
  2. The payer (customer or individual making the payment) opens a payment app on their smartphone, such as Airtel Thanks. 
  3. Within the Thanks app, the payer selects the option to scan a QR code. The option to scan the QR code is available on the pay section.
  4. The payer’s smartphone camera is activated, and they position it to focus on the QR code displayed by the recipient. 
  5. The Thanks app scans the QR code right away and display payment related information of the app screen.
  6. The payer reviews the payment details displayed on the app screen, such as the recipient’s name, payment amount, and any additional information.
  7. If the details are accurate, the payer proceeds to authorize the payment using the designated payment method. Using the Airtel UPI in the Airtel Thanks app can earn you cashback. You can also use other modes of payments available in the Thanks app. 
  8. Once the payment is authorized, the payer receives a confirmation of the successful transaction on the Thanks app screen and the recipient receives the funds.
