QR codes on phones for secure transactions are comonly used in the west...

...anyone who has used them at an airport check-in gate as an electronic boarding card will know that if a QR code is used by a trusted app/site, then read using a barcode scanner by someone able to close that identity loop and verify the information encoded in the QR, then it is trustworthy enough to get you on a plane.

That should be good enough for buying your groceries, too.
