The Bank of China Phnom Penh Branch has officially released the new function of UnionPay QR code payment for mobile banking, said its press statement on Friday.
"It is the first Chinese bank in Cambodia to implement UnionPay QR code payment on mobile banking," the statement said.
Mobile banking UnionPay QR code refers to scanning or generating a UnionPay standard QR code through BOC mobile banking for payment.

UnionPay QR code payment is used in countries or regions, such as the Chinese mainland, China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Cambodia through online and offline payment channels, said the statement.
It added that in Cambodia, UnionPay QR code payment is available at major shopping malls, supermarkets, brand stores, restaurants and hotels.
