Customers of Singapore’s DBS Bank and OCBC Bank will soon be able to make in-store mobile payments by scanning a QR code at any point-of-sale terminal belonging to the country’s electronic payments network Nets.
Both DBS and OCBC also offer support for Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Android Pay in Singapore. OCBC added Siri and iMessage payments to its Pay Anyone service in October 2016.
“DBS PayLah! Users will soon be able to make QR code payments on Nets terminals at a number of merchants across various categories which include transport, retail, fashion and F&B [food and beverage],” Nets says. “Some 2,000 Nets terminals will be enabled with this capability in the next two months and 10,000 by the end of the year.
“OCBC’s Pay Anyone customers can also make QR code payments at selected merchants with Nets terminals from May onwards, and users can make payments of up to S$1,000 (US$718) per day.”
