Nowadays all the work started happening online. It is the era of cashless, but this is fine even to the shopkeeper, but there is a country where the beggars are as modern as the common people. Beggars in China are getting modern day by day. Here e-payment and QR code are used for begging.
Beggars are cashless
In China, the general public used to make excuses for not having spare money, due to which beggars are using e-wallets. According to a report in Financial Express, beggars carrying a paper with a QR code stand at tourist places or shopping malls in the city because such places are visited by a large number of people.
Alipay and WeChat Wallet have tied up with beggars. As soon as the beggars take money with the help of QR code, the data of the givers goes to the companies. These companies use this data for their advertisements or any such benefit. Chinese President Xi Jinping declared his country poverty-free earlier this year.
