UnionPay QR Code Promotional Video

The UnionPay QR code payment product facilitates inter-bank switching among the apps of UnionPay members. The interaction between EMV QR codes enables person-to-person, person-to-merchant and merchant-to-merchant payments and value-added applications. QR scanning involves two modes: merchant-presented and consumer-presented. In terms of use case development, UnionPay International has launched multiple solutions such as the fund collection code, payment code, cash withdrawal code, and transit code to match the diverse needs of merchants and increase the speed of network development. UnionPay International actively cooperates with partners outside the Chinese mainland to develop or upgrade local wallets based on UnionPay standards. UnionPay cardholders can make UnionPay QR code payments at nearly 30 million merchants in 46 countries and regions around the world, covering a wide range of payment scenarios such as retail, food and beverage, campus, transportation, and healthcare.
