Same method as elsewhere, leave a QR code in a public place, like on a parking meter – then people see the QR code, scan the QR code have their money taken away.

Countermark is an easy to print encrypted data carrier, we keep people safe by strictly controlling who can create and print Countermarks.

Each Countermark is read with the Countermark App, which sends the Countermark image to our servers for verification, decryption and checking before data is sent to people’s phones.
