- The barcode system will continue to be supported within the app for existing customers in addition to the card feature until July 2021
- New customers to Afterpay will only have the option to pay with the Afterpay Card when making purchases in-store and will not have access to the barcode

What is the difference between the two products?
- Barcode/QR code is generated by the customer via the Afterpay app and then scanned via your POS of standalone system to create an Afterpay order for the customer
