China’s central bank to step up regulation of payments via PoS devices, QR codes

BEIJING : China’s central bank said on Wednesday it will step up regulations on payment activities via point-of-sale devices (PoS) as well as Quick Response codes (QR codes).

The move is to enhance regulators’ risk management of the payment terminals, and to cut off the illegal fund flows of cross-border gambling using such devices, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) said on its website.
