Currently, this facility has been introduced in Bengaluru with 1500 merchants. However, it will be extended shortly  in other cities as well.

• With this service, users of Pockets app can make cashless payments from their smartphones using their debit card by simply scanning a mVisa quick response (QR) code at a merchant location without swiping the card at an EDC machine.
• The service provides customers the convenience of speed to complete a transaction along with enhanced security as the card remains in possession of the customer.
• To use this facility, a customer is simply required to click on the mVisa icon on the home screen of the Pockets app.
• The app automatically activates the camera in the phone, allowing customers to scan the QR code and enter their debit card PIN.
• This mVisa solution will enable consumers to engage in secure and convenient payments and more easily access funds in their existing bank accounts to make everyday purchases and pay utility bills.
