Businesses will be able to receive payments for goods and services via many channels including QR Code and credit and debit cards from all banks worldwide via e-commerce applications. The bank is also collaborating with Thaitrade.com SOOK, an e-marketplace that helps Thai SMEs buy and sell products and services online, conveniently and quickly.

"The e-commerce market is increasingly important and there is already a high trade volume as customers nowadays prefer to order goods from digital channels, so businesses must adapt to this trend.
