Miraeasset Credit, the very first QR code disbursement solution in Vietnam, has been officially launched as one of Mirae Asset Finance Vietnam's strategic financial solutions to satisfy customers’ financial needs while creating an eco-system to connect customers with retail partners.

The application of technology to innovate products and create better customer experiences is emerging as a key tool for competitiveness across industries and consumer finance. Under the influence of the pandemic, shifting consumer taste has become a challenge in product and service innovation for many businesses. Specifically, cash usage habits have noticeably changed as the number of consumers using cashless payments through the NAPAS online payment portal has increased by 125 per cent while the total value of card payments at points of sales (POS) increased by 50 per cent, according to State Bank of Vietnam statistics.
