Seamless Distribution has launched its mobile payment service SEQR in Sweden using NFC technology.
The SEQR platform enables anybody with a smartphone to pay in stores, at restaurants, in parking lots and online, to transfer money at no charge, store receipts digitally, connect loyalty programs, and receive offers and promotions directly through one mobile app.
The user simply uses the SEQR app to scan a QR code at the check-out and enters a PIN code to approve payment.
The company added that Swedish users can pay with SEQR in any store in Sweden or abroad which has NFC payment terminals, even if a retailer has no private agreement with SEQR.
Seamless CEO Peter Fredell said: “Now SEQR customers will be able to pay using SEQR in any store which has NFC payment terminals. This offers our customers the chance to use SEQR in many, many more places and countries than today. Naturally this will drive a significant increase in use of SEQR from our existing customers, but we also anticipate large demand for SEQR from new customers eager to benefit from this new technology.”
Seamless also revealed that it will soon release SEQR contactless payment functionality to users globally, on devices running the Android operating system.
