Payment service company GHL Systems (GHL) has launched the “GHL QR Payment”, an all-in-one QR code payment channel in Thailand for merchants to easily receive payment.
This combines multiple QR code and e-wallet providers on a single payment platform which is available through the popular messaging app LINE.
The offering was developed on the LINE official account as an alternative for merchants to receive secure QR payments based on the EMVco standard QR code.
GHL said that it is expecting this to cascade into a full range of businesses ranging from big corporations and retail businesses to MSMEs and gig workers.
The GHL QR Payment via LINE is a cost-effective mobile payment solution which does not require a physical EDC terminal and its associated costs.
With the GHL QR Payment, merchants will be able to verify transactions, cancel error transactions and view historical reports.
GHL will also be able to provide merchants with multiple branches to accept payments through a single account with multiple locations and devices.
Prinya Jinantuya, Chief Executive Officer of GHL Thailand said,
“The launch of GHL QR Payment is the first in Thailand that QR payment service is available through the LINE Official Account.
The growing usage of cashless payments is evident in Thailand, further demonstrated by the government’s increasing efforts in this area, such as the rollout of the National e-Payment project that aims to reduce the use of physical cash within the country.”
