December 14, 2020

The Xfers Accept API has always been one of our core products to help you collect payments from your customers with ease.

Today, we are excited to introduce PayNow as a payment acceptance method into our Xfers Accept API!

With government entities in Singapore making a push for a cashless society and coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic, PayNow usage has accelerated to become an indispensable mode of payment that is widely used by nearly 70% of the Singapore population¹.

Furthermore, we’ve received numerous requests from our clients to broaden our acceptance with PayNow — on top of our existing payment method of Bank Transfers.

We’ve heard you and are now ready to start helping your business accept PayNow as a payment method, along with a few extra features to cater to your business needs!

Two QR modes — Static & Dynamic QR Codes

With the convenience of QR codes, your customers can make payments easily just by scanning with their PayNow application. Depending on your business needs, you can enjoy the flexibility of choosing between implementing static or dynamic QR code into your payment process.

The key differences between both static and dynamic QR code lie in the following:

1. Static QR Code — suitable for each customer & account

Features:

  • A unique QR code can be assigned to each of your customers
  • Customers can enter the payment amount manually
  • Ability to set a time-validity period before QR code expires

Example of use-cases:

  • For investment platforms, where no fixed amount is needed for deposits
  • For making top-ups to an e-wallet

2. Dynamic QR Code — suitable for invoices & checkouts

Features:

  • QR code changes with each transaction
  • Customers do not need to enter any amount manually and can make the payment directly
  • All the fields will be locked to prevent any user error
  • Ability to set a time-validity period before QR code expiry or for one-time use
