750 ths of sales points in Poland still accepts only cash. Cards acceptance is growing but the pace is limited due to cost of interchange and POS rental fees.

a. Payments in Shops (traditional POSes, directly in cash register and on PeoPay mPOS app prepared for smartphones) – by scanning QR code or showing 6 digit one-time-code to cashier
b. Payments in Internet by scanning QR code on computer screen
c. Withdrawals from ATMs without the card by using one-time-code
d. Online p2p transfers using telephone number or QR code
e. Donations to Charity organizations by scanning dedicated QR code
2) Ergonomics: focus on User Experience – operations can be done by using one finger, access do not requires visit in branch, payments quicker than cash payments
3) Openness : PeoPay can be linked to banking account or to prepaid, no secure elements are needed, internet access is only requirement
4) Benefits to merchants: lower costs of acceptance, quicker than cash, dedicated mPOS app
