What is a PayCode?
A PayCode is a Quick Response code (QR code), which directs customers to a secure Checkout Portal to complete payment, so you don't need to share your bank details. Customers scan a PayCode by opening their phone camera and hovering it over the PayCode displayed on the merchant's phone, and then pay using Apple Pay, Google Pay or any major debit/credit card.
