E Leclerc rolls out national m-payment service

Monday 13 January 2014 00:44 CET | News

French supermarket chain E Leclerc is set to roll-out national mobile payments service in all its stores during the first half of 2014 using QR codes.

The first version of the mobile payment Paiement Flash app has been developed by Leclerc-owned Banque Edel in collaboration with Mobey, the Luxembourg-based company behind NFC and QR code-based mobile payment and loyalty platform Flashiz.

The solution is compatible with both iOS and Android devices and enables customers to link credit cards to the application and then use it to make purchases both in-store and online.

For online purchases, consumers are able to select mobile payment as a tender type during checkout. A dynamic QR code is then generated for the consumer to scan with their mobile device to complete the payment. The app also supports peer-to-peer money transfers.
