SINGAPORE — DBS PayLah! users can now use the application for purchases in 45 markets using quick response (QR) codes from one of the world's largest payment networks, UnionPay, said DBS and UnionPay International in a statement on Tuesday (June 21).

The tie-up between DBS, China-based UnionPay and Singapore's electronic payments provider Nets will allow PayLah! users to tap into UnionPay’s QR code payment network of 31 million retailers in popular travel destinations such as China, Malaysia, Japan, South Korea and Thailand.

Users will have to scan or generate the UnionPay QR code at overseas supported retailers for payment, with the application automatically handling the transaction’s currency conversion.

“This allows DBS PayLah! users to pay securely at UnionPay QR Code-enabled merchants worldwide, so travellers can skip the hassle having to queue to exchange currencies,” said the Singapore bank.

Here are the steps to scan to pay:

  • Launch DBS PayLah! app and tap "scan"
  • Scan the UnionPay QR Code and enter payment amount (if required)
  • Review and confirm your transaction details

This is how to generate a QR code for a merchant to scan:

  • Launch DBS PayLah! app and tap "My QR"
  • Tap on UnionPay and select either "Mainland China" or "SG & Others"
  • Present your QR Code to the merchant to scan
  • Tap "Begin Payment"
  • Review and confirm your transaction details
