One strategy to get customers is to add a digital payment method to businesses. One option is CoDi®, a platform developed by the Bank of Mexico (Banxico).
With CoDi® you can make collections and payments from a cell phone, using an account with a financial institution, without commissions. The CoDi® platform is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year. It allows you to make contactless transactions, you just have to scan a QR code and that’s it.
All people can make payments and collections from their cell phone, using their accounts at a financial institution. Banxico indicates that to date at least 1.1 million accounts have made a payment with CoDi® and 780,014 have made a collection.
Large companies such as Sanborns, Liverpool, Coppel, Tiendas 3B, RadioShack, OfficeDepot, Soriana, Telcel, Chedraui, La Comer, Telmex, Farmacias del Ahorro and Intercompras have found an ally in CoDi® to get more customers.
