VK users can pay for purchases and services using a QR code. This became possible thanks to the partnership between the VK Pay service and the National Payment Card System (operational payment and clearing center of the SBP). This was reported to CNews by representatives of VK.
Payment by QR code has appeared in a number of VK services – in Odnoklassniki and in projects in which VK Pay is integrated: Vkontakte, My World, and partially in Mail.ru Games. In the future, the list of services with the ability to pay by QR code will expand.
“Payment by QR code is convenient and safe. User data is not transferred to third parties, payments are made instantly. There is no need to dial the card number manually, which means that time is not wasted on this, ”said the director of financial and payment technologies at VK Andrey Efimochkin.
“Payments by QR code through SBP are gaining more and more popularity among users of various services. Today, more than 150 banks provide this opportunity to their customers in their mobile applications. We are sure that the young advanced audience of VK will also appreciate the speed, convenience, security and other advantages of paying with the help of the Fast Payment System,” said NSPK Innovation Services Development Director Dmitry Kolesnikov.
In order to use the new option in the VK Pay interface, you need to select the SBP, after which the system will generate a QR code. If the page is opened on a smartphone, it is enough to press the button to proceed to payment: the user will be redirected to the application of his bank. The service will automatically fill in the details and data – all that remains is to confirm the payment. If the QR code is opened on a laptop or desktop, it must be scanned by the camera of a smartphone or tablet.
