Jakarta, 19 April 2022 -- The momentum of increasing mobility and public consumption this year has become a blessing for all national payment transaction channels. Quick Response Code Indonesian Standard (QRIS) is predicted to record stronger performance growth.
The Head of the Communications Department of Bank Indonesia, Erwin Haryono said that people are now more comfortable using QRIS as a daily payment channel. Banks including BNI also continue to aggressively expand QRIS acceptance to support a more massive increase in cashless and cardless transactions.
"We need to underline that the period of Ramadan and Eid in 2022 is estimated to be much more festive than the previous 2 years of the pandemic. Of course, this will generate transactions, especially in QRIS, which is stronger," Erwin said.
BNI’s President Director, Royke Tumilaar is optimistic that the Ramadan and Eid 2022 period will be the best momentum for accelerating QRIS transaction performance. BNI continues to expand the number of merchants so that the acceptance of the QRIS BNI Mobile Banking feature is wider and supports the QRIS program Towards Indonesia Maju from Bank Indonesia.
"In Q1 2022, BNI has acquired more than 1.6 million QRIS merchants with BNI's QRIS transaction volume reaching Rp297 billion. This acceptance readiness is expected to encourage people to rely more and more on cashless and cardless QRIS transactions as their main daily transaction method. Through the convenience of QRIS BNI Mobile Banking, which is simply scan and go, it will provide a comfortable, safe, fast, and practical experience for customers," he said.
To further encourage the use of QRIS, apart from educating customers, BNI also provides attractive promos at various favorite merchants such as free pudding or ice cream for payment transactions with QRIS BNI Mobile Banking at KFC every Monday and special discounts every 25th of each month.
BNI also provides attractive cashback and buy one get one promos at Chatime, Gindaco, and Cupbop. Not only that, BNI also provides attractive promos at various groceries merchants during the month of Ramadan, local MSME merchants to encourage the use of QRIS BNI Mobile Banking in the regions.
