WhatsApp新增二维码付款功能

据科技媒体TechCrunch报道,即时消息平台WhatsApp即将推出二维码支付功能。

据悉,本次新功能将先针对部分安卓测试版用户开放,并在未来几周逐步扩大测试范围。

此前不久,WhatsApp刚刚获得印度政府许可将其UPI整合到其应用程序中,并正式推出移动支付功能。这样一来,印度P2P付款界就形成了“三强鼎立”的局面,它们分别是Facebook旗下的WhatsApp、Google旗下的Tez和有中国腾讯集团支持的Hike。

此外,就在今年1月,WhatsApp宣布推出针对中小企业的免费Android应用程序WhatsApp Business。 WhatsApp指出,新应用程序将使小企业更容易与客户联系,包括其现有的13亿用户。

WhatsApp, the messaging app that has a payments component, is expanding the payments types it supports by rolling out the ability to support QR codes for payments.

In an unsourced report, TechCrunch reported the ability to offer monetary transactions via QR code is being enabled for users who are part of the Android beta, with a larger-scale rollout slated for the coming weeks. With the feature, users can send money with QR codes as long as they have WhatsApp Payments.

The mobile app’s ability to support QR codes comes on the heels of the service adding a new feature called Send to UPI ID, which lets users send money to any UPI ID in India. Back in July, TechCrunch reported that WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, received a nod from the Indian government to integrate UPI into the WhatsApp messaging app. By enabling payments, WhatsApp will be competing against Tez from Google, which already supports peer-to-peer payments, and Hike, which has the backing of China’s Tencent.

In January, the company announced the launch of WhatsApp Business, a free Android app targeted at small and medium-sized businesses. WhatsApp noted the new app will make it easier for small businesses to connect with customers, including its existing 1.3 billion users.
