SSLCOMMERZ launches Bangla QR

A new mean of contactless payment to ensure customer and merchant safety during the pandemic partnered with EBL & VISA

SSLCOMMERZ, the local payment gateway, has recently launched Bangla QR at the Gulshan Branch of Shwapno & Banani Branch of Burger King in Dhaka. Bangla QR is the national QR for digital payments authorised by Bangladesh Bank. Customers can pay digitally by scanning the Bangla QR using the mobile payment applications provided by banks. The shop owner or cashier will get an SMS confirmation after accepting payment through Bangla QR. They can also monitor the daily transaction details using a merchant app. As there is no cash or card exchanged during the payment process, it is considered an advanced form of contactless payment. With Bangla QR, customers will now be able to scan and pay digitally using their Visa cards of specific banks. Small, medium and large entrepreneurs, restaurants, grocery shops, and other retailers from different verticals too can avail this advanced contactless payment method. During the inauguration program, Sayeeful Islam, Managing Director of SSLCOMMERZ, said, 'We opened a new chapter in the history of Bangladesh by launching Bangla QR in pursuit of Digital Bangladesh vision of our Government. I believe QR payments will transform the society into a cashless one where even bills at the roadside tea stall can be paid digitally using QR. We are delighted to collaborate with Eastern Bank and Visa in this revolutionary initiative.'
