PayPal rolls out QR codes for touch free transactions

PayPal Holdings Inc. is offering consumers the ability to pay with in-app QR codes across 28 different international markets, a move that gives a safer way to make payments through the company's mobile wallet. 

"We know that in the current environment, buying and selling good in a health-conscious, safe and secure way is front of mind for many people around the world," John Kunze, senior vice president of branded experiences at PayPal. "As the coronavirus pandemic has evolved, we have seen a surge in demand for digital payments to transition to include new and safe solutions for in-person environments and situations."

PayPal is temporarily waiving its standard seller transaction fees on QR code transactions.
