South Africa's Virgin Money has signed an agreement with businesses to enable customers to use its peer-to-peer (P2P) application Virgin Money Spot to pay for goods and services, too. At a 'Pay with Spot' sign, customers can click the 'Pay a merchant' button and choose from three payment methods, namely by scanning a merchant QR code on their bill, generating a unique QR code to be scanned by the merchant, or providing a manual code for the merchant to enter in their POS.
