BPC Processing has been certified as TPP in C2B transactions within FPS

BPC Processing has successfully completed certification for C2B transfers as a third party processor (TPP) within the Faster Payments System.

C2B instant payments is a platform that enables payments via QR -code – the solution significantly reduces merchant’s costs on equipment and transactions fees. There are two types of QR-codes.

Dynamic: A merchant presents the QR to the consumer (e.g. by displaying it on a screen).To make a payment the consumer opens the payment app on his smartphone and scans the code.

Static: When a merchant uses static QR-code, no special equipment is needed. The consumer scans the merchant’s code (which could be placed as a sticker) with his smartphone app and enters the payment amount to complete transaction.

The solution might help covering segments of a large target audience – those who have no NFC chip in their smartphones. Moreover, a vast majority of shops and cafes to be connected this month.
