Vietnam Electricity (EVN) is working with commercial banks and intermediary payment services institutions to offer QR code payments for power bills.

Each customer would have a QR Code. EVN has said it expects agreements with banks and intermediary payment services institutions would be completed by the end of August. In September, EVN plans to announce the list of institutions which can provide QR code payment services for power bills.

Nguyen Quoc Dung, head of EVN’s Business Department, said the move to carry out QR code payments was in response to prime minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s directive to promote a cashless society.

This would also help improve labour productivity and management efficiency, Dung said.

Statistics of VNPAY-QR showed the number of points of sales accepting QR code payments increased from 20,000 to 70,000 during the past year.
