Snapdeal partnered with the National Payments Corporation of India to allow their customer to make a quick response (QR) digital payments at the time of delivery of their orders. Snapdeal’s new Quick response code payment option is aimed at new users who are not comfortable in pre-paying for the goods at the time of purchase.
The company customer will be offered the Quick response code payment option (QR code) at their doorstep as part of the delivery process. With the links on their delivery application, the delivery executive will generate a unified payment interface linked quick response code for the order amount. The customer can scan the quick response code with any unified payment interface linked payment app on their phone and pay for their purchase. The customer can confirm the name of the payee and the amount before approving the payment with this facility. Snapdeal’s new facility will work with all unified payment interface payment options, including Google Pay, WhatsApp Pay, Phone Pe, Paytm, and UPI apps from private & public sector banks like HDFC Bank, SBI, ICICI bank. etc.
The company is aiming this integration for increasing the usage and adoption of unified payment interface-based payments in smaller cities. The company buyers who bank with cooperative banks, scheduled cooperative banks, district cooperative banks, state cooperative banks, urban cooperative banks, and regional rural banks can also be able to pay through this feature.
The company always looks out for additional ways to make the online experience better and more convenient for customers, especially for those new users who are starting their online journeys. This partnership with the National payments corporation allows our users to time the payment to their comfort levels and also enables the company delivery partners to reduce cash handling. Snapdeal also believes that this will expand the adoption of a unified payment interface in smaller cities and towns in India, said Rajnish Wahi, Senior Vice President, Snapdeal.
National Payments Corporation of India is pleased to partner with Snapdeal to offer a convenient as well as comfortable doorstep payment experience to customers through a unified payment interface. NPCI believes this partnership will boost unified payment interface transactions among numerous buyers and provide extra confidence to them to perform digital transactions even though they choose cash-on-delivery as an option. With the unified payment interface, it’s a constant endeavor of NPCI to bring together Indian customers on the UPI journey and offer them smart, secured, and problem-free payment solutions. NPCI also hopes that with strategic initiatives like these, India is going to achieve the goal of a digital society soon, said Kunal Kalawatia, Chief of Marketing, NPCI.
