Under the scope of this MOU two companies will explore necessary regulatory, operational technical and commercial viability to integrate its payment processing switch to facilitate cross border QR code-based payments between Korea and Nepal. This collaboration between GLN and Fonepay will start with Korea outbound QR payment service.
