Pay for school lunches from your phone

In a global first, MasterCard and Commonwealth Bank launched the Quicker [QkR] app for schools yesterday.

Quicker incorporates QR code capability and allows schools to upload their full range of goods and services and accept credit, debit and charge payments electronically.

Parents can pay for school lunches, school excursions, uniforms and fees using their credit or debit card – eliminating the need to send cash to school with their children.
