Dutch retailer Albert Heijn has announced that it has added a new smartphone-based payment service for home deliveries.
The service, which the retailer claims is a first of its kind in the Netherlands, allows users to pay for their online orders through a payment request instead of a PIN.
The delivery person generates a QR code on their payment device, which is scanned by the customer with the Albert Heijn app.
This redirects the customer to his/her bank app for processing the payment. Once the payment is complete, the delivery person gets a notification.
The retailer collaborated with ING to develop the payment service, which can be availed by account holders of all Dutch banks.
