The HKMA has launched the Faster Payment System (FPS). It enables instant payments in Hong Kong, providing consumers and merchants a safe, efficient and widely accessible retail payment service on a 24/7 basis.
1. Open a FPS Account With HSBC
In order to add this payment method, you will need to contact HSBC to open a Business account and apply the Business Collect service where businesses can accept FPS payments.
Once you are done, you will have a Merchant ID.
** Please noted that, merchant ID is not same as FPS Identifiers .**
You can then contact our team and provide us with the Merchant ID to help you set up FPS in your shop!
2. Customer Checkout Flow
Customers choose "FPS" as payment method > Click "Proceed to Checkout"
Customers fill in their information and delivery details > Click "Place Order" from your store
Customers will be directed to a payment page with QR code.
i) If customer is using PC for checkout, they can use any bank's payment app, which supports FPS, to complete the checkout process.
ii) If customer is using mobile phone for checkout, they need to first screen capture the QR code on the checkout page. Then use any bank's payment app, enter the page for scanning the QR code, press the button on the top right corner to upload the QR code to complete the payment process.
