Offer quick cashless payments for an item

  • QuickPay is the ability to scan a QR code at a vendor location and purchase an item without using cash. It can be Bud Light or any other type of item, but there is only one SKU per QR code and guests can purchase 1 or 2 of that item.
  • Guests tap on the QuickPay link and add their credit card. Once their cc is entered, they scan the QR code at the vendor and then they have a selection of one item or two items. When they choose 1 or 2, they see a confirmation with a timer.
  • The vendor checks their ID before they scan, then allows them to scan. The vendor verifies the counter is within 10 seconds or so (to prevent fraud) and give them the items.


  • Here are the steps to set up a QuickPay location, item and QR code in Canopy
    • Set up a QuickPay Location
    • Set up a new item and add to that location
    • Get the QR code and print for the vendor to keep for scanning
    • The last few slides are sample training materials for the vendor, for troubleshooting and for the QR code sign. Feel free to make your own with your screenshots.
