The Commercial Bank of Ceylon reaffirmed its continuing support to the Central Bank initiative to promote cashless digital payments via the LANKAQR platform when it participated at the 'රට පුරාමLANKAQR' programme in Kandy on 20th March. The event which took place at the rooftop of the Kandy City Centre (KCC) was graced by Central Bank Director Payments and Settlements Mr D. Kumaratunge and several other dignitaries including Kandy City Centre Chairman/Managing Director Mr Thusitha Wijayasena.
Commercial Bank, whose App 'ComBank Q+' Payment App was the first QR-based App to be launched on LANKAQR, the national Quick Response (QR) Code platform, offered customers who shopped at KCC and in the Kandy area and paid for their purchases via ComBank Q+ Payment App a 35% cashback, subject to a daily limit and the offer continues till 31st March. The Bank also deployed a sales team to visit retailers in the shopping complex and the locality to register more merchants for the ComBank Q+ Merchant App, as part of its continuing support to popularising LANKAQR.
ComBank Q+ offers options for both retail customers and merchants. All recently launched Android Point-of-Sale (POS) machines deployed by the Bank facilitate cashless payments at merchant outlets countrywide. This device is positioned as the most advanced Android POS device in the country. The Android Smart Terminal combines the functionality and portability of an Android terminal with tailored security-certified payments software, enabling it to accept transactions via VISA, Mastercard, UnionPay, LankaPay and JCB, as well as QR based wallet payments under LANKAQR.
