Nacha, the electronic payments association, issued guidelines for the use of quick-response (QR) codes for consumer bill payment.

QR codes are two-dimensional bar codes that can be scanned with a smartphone's camera to direct users to a website or pull up specific information. The codes are increasingly common in stores and advertisements to direct consumers to product information, and some mobile payment systems use them to present account data.
