QR code options in Cyclos 4.7.2 and Cyclos 4.8

Post by admin » Sat Dec 31, 2016 10:14 am

Cyclos 4.8 is expected to be released the beginning of March 2017. We did however include some QR options in the current version (Cyclos 4.7.2 and Mobile 1.4.5).
From the mobile app you can make and receive payments using a QR code as identifier (to identify either the payer or the receiver). So a customer (payer) at a shop will show the QR code (either printed on a card or a paper or in his mobile app) and the shop does a receive payment by putting in the amount in his App and scanning the QR code of the payer. Typically, for this flow, the user/payer needs to have a identification method QR/barcode enabled, and the receiver/shop will need to have the QR code identification method defined in the configuration/mobile channel (receive payment options).

Instead of the user showing a physical QR code as identification method token (e.g. card or paper) he can also show it in the mobile app. For this the option 'Show QR code for User identification methods' must be set in the mobile channel (in the configuration). An extra option 'Show QR code' will appear at the home page of the mobile app. Showing the QR code can be used for making payments (at a shop that performs a receive payment with QR code identifier) as well as receiving payments (users can do a direct payment and use the QR code to identify the receiver).

It is possible to identify users by QR code without the users having a identification method of token type QR/Bar code. This is because the setting 'Show QR code for User identification methods' can generate QR codes from other user fields, such as account number, login name, email etc. This works well. The reason you might prefer a token is when QR codes are printed on user cards, this way users and admins can keep track on the cards, block and disable them if necessary, or create several cards for the customer with different rules.

The 4.8 version comes with a fully fledged QR module. It can be used to integrated with third party e-commerce sites for quick on-line payments. It will be possible to send bulk invoices to customers with generated QR codes for quick payments, or quick payment links via third party applications such as Whatsapp.

Hi,
QR payments running OK on mobil version 1.4.6 for Android?
At the moment of recognizing the user by QR code to make the payment we get the following message:
The user was not found or does not have permission to view
We think ok settings (4.7.2 version) but something may be wrong.
Where we can find the QR code payments configuration by steps?
Many thanks and good job!

Joan

I just discovered the wonderful world QR code when I began to add them to my products, but I was curious when they could be attached to crypto-currency.
