UBA Plc has introduced another innovative payment method called NQR. The platform is an indigenous QR-code-based payments and collections solution to enhance customers’ experience for merchants and buyers.
The key element of the NQR is embedded in the UBA mobile banking app.
It is powered by the Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System (NIBSS).
Head, Digital Banking, Olukayode Olubiyi, said: “Our customers are at the heart of our business. That’s why we keep going the extra mile to constantly innovate in a bid to satisfy them. As we very well know Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) contribute significantly to the economy but remain heavily dependent on cash to run their businesses; however, consumers are demanding safer and more convenient ways to pay.”
“That is why we have partnered with NIBSS to introduce the NQR (NIBSS QR), which is a safe, contactless payment platform for merchants and customers to receive and make QR code-based payments for goods and services”
Olubiyi added, “This payment method is a contactless solution, poised to give customers a unique experience as it is seamless, fast, easy, secure, reliable, and account-based option dedicated to receive and pay for goods and services at their convenience”
