KASIKORNBANK (KBank) has teamed with JCB and The Singtel's VIA – Asia's first cross-border mobile payment alliance – to offer QR code payment service via K PLUS in Japan and Singapore. The initiative aims to provide enhanced convenience for K PLUS users when making payment abroad. Simply paying via QR code with enhanced security, customers can go cashless when going abroad, with no more concerns regarding insufficient funds or leftover currency, especially foreign coins that cannot be exchanged for cash at home. Currently, there are more than 1,000 pay points in Japan, including outlets in Narita International Airport, Grandberry Park, Kirindo, Sugiyama Drugs, and other shops bearing the K PLUS or Smart Code logos nationwide. JCB plans to expand its service up to 100,000 pay points by March 2020. In Singapore, more than 800 pay points are available such as 7-Eleven, Watsons, outlets in Jewel Changi Airport and at various tourist attractions – including China Town, Clarke Quay, Orchard Road, and Marina Bay – that display the VIA logo.

This service does not require a minimum transaction amount. Customers can make payment up to 100,000 Baht/transaction/day without transaction fee, and check the payment amount in both Thai Baht and foreign currencies with the exact conversion rate before confirming the payment to end any worries over currency fluctuations. Upon completing the transaction, customers will receive an e-Slip as an evidence of payment. They can also access information on their spending records any time via K PLUS.

Special promotion! The first 10,000 customers who use K PLUS to scan for payment worth at least 100 Baht in Japan or Singapore with participating merchants each month will receive a 20-Baht cash back. The privilege is limited to one person/cash back offer during the program, from today until February 29, 2020.
