Checkprint, Barclays partner on QR code-based mobile payments

Tuesday 18 March 2014 00:47 CET | News

Checkprint, part of the TALL Group of Companies, a UK provider of paper and payment solutions, has created and applied personalised two dimensional QR codes for children’s medical research charity Sparks.

Sparks has wanted to incorporate QR codes into its welcome letters for the 2014 Bake for Bumps campaign, enabling fundraisers to pay in their funds using the Barclays Pingit smartphone app, which has a built-in QR code scanner.

Checkprint, who has previously provided individually numbered credit slips for Sparks, was able to generate and apply QR codes, each with a unique reference to the individual fundraiser. By incorporating this additional personalisation, Sparks is set to be able to identify the individual fundraisers’ donations.

In recent news, investment provider Parmenion has entered an agreement with Barclays to enable clients to transfer money into their investment accounts by Barclays Pingit via their mobile phone.
