Just open the PayPal app and press "Scan." Hold your phone up to the QR code. It's a lot like taking a picture with your camera.
Enter the amount due and press "Send."
The app automatically generates a payment confirmation. Just show it to the cashier to confirm the amount paid is correct and go - completely touch-free.
Even if you're new to taking payments, PayPal QR codes are incredibly simple to implement. We're even waiving "Goods & Services" seller fees through December 31, 2020.*
From the PayPal app, you can generate a code for your business, save it to your camera roll, and print it to display in store. Or, order stickers, signs, and lanyards printed with your unique QR code.
QR-code payments will allow you to get paid in person with PayPal just by displaying your QR code for customers to scan. You don't need any additional devices.
*Seller transaction fees on QR code payments are waived through December 31, 2020. After that, you’ll pay a fee of 1.9% + $0.10 per transaction. Other fees may apply. Currency conversion and other fees may apply. Seller Protection is not available on in-person transactions.
