ComBank leads national drive to promote LANKAQR in Gampaha

The latest LANKAQR event of the nationwide rollout campaign of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka organised by Commercial Bank took place at the Gampaha Municipal Council grounds on 22nd January with a large participation of dignitaries, members of partner banks, merchants and other invitees.

This is the first LANKAQR event for 2022 and is intended to popularise LANKAQR payments among small and medium merchants as a low-cost digital payment method and as a secure and convenient payment solution that can be operated via mobile devices.

Digital Technology State Minister Namal Rajapaksa graced the event as Chief Guest.

The Guest of Honour at the Gampaha event was Tourism Minister Prasanna Ranatunga. Gampaha Mayor Eranga Senanayake and CBSL Assistant Governor Dharmasri Kumaratunga also graced the event.

Commercial Bank offered customers who shopped at the event and retailers in the locality and paid for their purchases via the Q+ Payment App, a 35% cashback, subject to a maximum daily limit of Rs 750. This offer will continue until 31st January, the Bank said.

Commercial Bank has also deployed a sales team to visit retailers in the Gampaha area to encourage registrations and to onboard merchants to the LANKAQR platform via the Q+ Merchant App. The Commercial Bank of Ceylon has already conducted a series of activities in Gampaha in support of the Central Bank’s initiative to promote cashless digital payments via the LANKAQR platform, including fully digitising the Gampaha Municipal Council’s payment platforms and presenting cashback offers to customers.

The event also included the symbolic activation of digital payments of the Gampaha Municipal Council. Residents served by the Council can now pay Rates (Varipanam) and for other services online via e-invoices through the ComBank Internet Payment Gateway (IPG) or settle their dues using their credit or debit cards or by using the LANKAQR platform when they visit the offices of the Council. Further, users of the Q+ Payment App can enjoy the convenience and safety of settling their bills with a click of a button through their digital wallet.
