Bizum wants you to make payments in physical stores

Come on, at the end of the day, what is sought is to generate a feeling of complete comfort for users when making payments. It might be something that takes some getting used to due to the fact that, in the end, pulling out your card to pay is something that has been done for a long time.
But now you no longer need to have a physical card to make a payment, many people have started to pay with their mobile phones. This may have been taken into account at Bizum, and there should be no difference between making a mobile payment with a registered card and scanning a QR code to make the payment.
