Straightforward, convenient, and not needing to carry cash has made QR payment very popular. FonePay, SmartQR and other PSOs’ services have helped proliferate electronic payments further across Nepal. In Nepal, people mostly use mobile banking apps and digital wallets to scan & pay via QR.

These days, we can find QR stands at various merchants- at stores, restaurants, groceries, cinemas, etc. The trend of QR payment has been growing hyperbolically since the Covid-19 lockdowns. NRB’s promotion and the growing internet and smartphone use have made QR transactions default payment mode for many. The regulatory bank has even promoted the idea of a digital currency to create a cashless economy.

In average, around Rs 21 arab transactions are made via QR scan.
