UK supermarket giant Tesco’s PayQwiq mobile payments service, which lets customers pay using an Android or Apple phone by snapping an image of a QR code located at each checkout, is now live in 524 of the retailer’s stores in London and Edinburgh. Customers with a Tesco Clubcard automatically get reward points when they pay with PayQwiq, the retailer says, making checkout quicker for loyalty cardholders than paying via either contactless or chip and pin. The service has been on trial since September 2014.
