Scan & Pay: Make Contactless Payment through Bank's Mobile App

Scan and Pay is one of the digital payment methods through which customers can pay for their purchases by scanning the QR code available with the merchant. However, did you know that you don’t have to download Phone Pay or Google Pay to carry out contactless payment? You can pay by scanning the QR code through your bank’s mobile banking app.

If you haven’t downloaded your bank’s mobile banking app, you should do it as you can do multiple things through your bank app.

One of the most striking features of the Scan and Pay system is that it offers immense ease of use to the users. As a customer, you are simply required to scan the specific QR (Quick Response) code and then enter the amount that you want to transfer. Once it is successful, the particular amount would instantly get deducted from your account. As such, there is no need for any swiping machine or entering passwords or PINs. There is also no need of entering the phone number or account details of the particular merchant towards enabling payments.

How to Operate the Scan & Pay Feature?

If you wish to use the Scan & Pay feature, you need to have a smartphone and then, download the specific mobile app or your bank’s website through which you will be using this feature. Most of the leading banks offer the feature of “Scan & Pay” through their mobile banking apps. For instance, Kotak Mahindra Bank customers including Kotak 811 can avail the scan & pay option through the Kotak Mobile Banking App.
