Payment Link Reminders

Do you know, Out of the total B2B sales made in India, 40% happen on credit. This is the flow of business in India for a long time. The real pain is follow-ups after payments are immense. Almost every business has to deal with this ordeal every day. There are two faces of a product, one is you crack a deal with the customer and the other is collection of the payment from him/her. It is very often that the customer hangs up the call leaving incomplete payment request. Payment links can solve this problem. Instant links to collect quick payments.

Payment Links are now available with automated reminders which helps in increasing the number of paid invoices and links, reduce the cost involved after the manual effort behind collecting payment & reduce the number of days taken by the customer to make payment.

payment reminder

The reminders can be sent depending on the date of sending the payment link. If you have set an expiry for the payment link then the reminder can be set before expiry so that a payment reminder with the payment link will be sent to the customer before the link expires.

The payment reminder will be sent based on analysis of your payment history, let say, in the past, you have made a frequent payment during the day, a payment reminder will be sent in the day time. The reminder will be sent on both SMS/Email. 

Payment reminders prove to be more effective as it has increased the conversion rate, it also helps in identifying whether the customer has received the payment link which they haven’t paid yet.

Small Business:

Do you own a general store or you are a vendor looking forward to collecting online payment? Your local store might be doing well without an online payment facility but having an online payment solution can help you boost your sales, how? What is a customer shopping at your store wants to make a card payment and you do not have an online payment feature? You will lose sales. Thus, having a payment gateway can help you boost sales.

 

What should you consider?

  • Providing your customers an online payment option will be an add on for you. 
  • Look for a payment gateway that provides not just wallet but other online payment features like Credit/ Debit card, Net banking and more. Having just the wallet payment features has its drawbacks like the customer wanting to pay online might have not done KYC for wallet payment.
  • Look for a payment gateway that provides hassle-free documentation and legal matters because you do not want to visit your payment gateway office back and forth for getting your documents clear where you invest your time and money.
  • Payment gateway should be coding-free as you do not want an additional person to look after the payment gateway to resolve the technical issues.

 

Online Business:

Do you have an online business with more than 50 employees?

 

Here’s what you should consider:

You should go with the traditional payment gateway. Traditional payment gateways are time-consuming when it comes to documentation and legal matters but considering your high investment it is worth your time. Also, you need to need an additional person to look after the integration of the payment gateway. Make sure that the payment gateway provides multiple payment options so that your customers can pay with any payment method they are comfortable with.

 

 

Large Retail Chain:

Do you own a Super Market or Retail Chain?

Here’s what you should consider:

Online Payment is not for you. But having an online payment solution and providing multiple payment options for your customers will be a smart option. You should consider having a payment solution for collecting the payment faster and online payment will solve this problem. Traditional POS machines might be working fine but having more options will improve the payment experience.

data security

Is your data secure with Payment Gateway?

Did you ever imagine that payment gateways in your life would be so omnipresent? Possibly not. And yet, we are here. Today, each time you make a digital payment, you run into a payment gateway. When you pay Rs 100 for food or buy an iPhone worth a lakh from an e-commerce service, you connect with a payment gateway.

Without a doubt, payment gateways made online purchases very convenient. But when they pay online, many customers usually face some sort of anxiety. Even if we believe that the transaction will be safe, when we enter our card or bank details, there is always a doubt at the back of our minds. It’s after all our hard-earned money on the line.

Nevertheless, as digital payments are not going anywhere but up in terms of usage, let’s understand how secure your online transactions are and what exactly a portal of payment is doing with your data.

 

Encryption through PCI-DSS Compliance:

First things first, a payment gateway does not store the data as is. The best payment gateways are PCI-DSS compliant. The PCI Security Standards Council is a global organization that sets security guidelines on all online payment processes for the protection of cardholder data. PCI-DSS is a global online security standard. To you, this ensures that your electronic transactions are encrypted to ensure that there is no interception of data.

In simple words, payment gateway doesn’t store your sensitive information like name, card number, pin, password & CVV. It only uses it for completing the transaction.

Related Post: What is PCI-DSS Compliance?

 

https for High Security:

Data security begins the moment you land on the website. A payment gateway uses the highest SSL certificate authentication, which enables the data to be authenticated by TLS. It might sound a bit tricky, but in simple words, you just have to look for the website. A website with https:// is the secure website.

Today, most e-commerce companies work with secure payment gateways to make sure their customers ‘ data is not compromised. You can also test whether or not the website or payment gateway page is safe by searching for https:/ in the URL, but in addition to understanding how payment gateways provide protection, let’s look at something called tokenization.

 

Tokenization:

While making the payment you enter the 16-digit number. Payment gateway substitutes the 16-digit number with a single token. This token is a set of random characters to replace the 16-digit number of your card. It allows the authentication of payment without revealing the sensitive details. Cards are assigned randomly, making the actual card number from the token incredibly difficult to reverse-engineer.

 In conclusion, payment gateways and online transactions in today’s world are by and large safer. You can go ahead and digitally transact with proper peace of mind. Only make sure you keep your eyes wide open so you don’t slip into traps.

whatsapp payment

Whatsapp Payment Business on Hault

WhatsApp has been testing a peer-to-peer payment service in India for more than a year, its largest user market, but official launch has been delayed by local data storage standards. After a hacking incident involving Israeli spyware Pegasus, Supreme Court gave the central bank six weeks to report on WhatsApp’s compliance with data localization standards as Facebook-owned messenger gears to launch a payment service in the country, a person involved in the case said. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) told the Supreme Court that the WhatsApp messaging platformdoes not comply with data localization requirements.

The apex bank ordered the Indian National Payments Corporation (NPCI) not to permit the Facebook-owned company to introduce the full-scale payment service in India.

WhatsApp faced an additional challenge as a think-tank based in Delhi, the Center for Accountability And Systemic Change, claimed in a petition to the Supreme Court last year that the company did not comply with the rules on data localization payments.

NPCI operates the Unified Payments Interface (UPI), which last month clocked more than one billion transactions. PhonePe and Google Pay are the leading UPI players followed by Paytm and Amazon Pay.

WhatsApp Payments, based on UPI, has been in beta for a year or so. In 2017, through an invite-only model, the company started testing the payment service in India.  The payment service in India, however, is yet to be officially launched.

The development comes as RBI had recently been asked by the Supreme Court to update it in August on the data location status of WhatsApp.

The RBI has reviewed the above reports (by NPCI) and NPCI’s responses and is of the view that WhatsApp stores the following payment information elements outside India beyond the timelines stated in the circular and frequently asked questions (FAQs) on storage of payment system data provided by RBI on June 26, 2019, “RBI said, as quoted by Times of India.

Also, RBI has advised NPCI not to allow WhatsApp to go live on the UPI payment system for full-scale operations until it is fully compliant, it added. WhatsApp payments system stores various payment information outside India, including transaction ID, collection demand expiry, and reference numbers for retrieval among other data elements says RBI. WhatsApp has more than 1.5 billion users worldwide, including 400 million users in India alone

smart billing

Smart Billing

Smart billing lets you create custom subscriptions for your customers and receive recurring payments. Generate personalized invoices to receive your customers ‘ payments on time.

We provide an easy-to-use, fast & automated platform for SMEs that charge their customers with rentals to create subscriptions & charge customers based on the billing frequency & billing cycle you create.

Subscription:

Subscriptions are essentially automatic transactions where a customer authorizes a service provider / dealer to auto debit fixed amounts at regular intervals as determined by the contract. Digital payment Guru provides merchants with an automated, trouble-free platform where they can create recurring payment schedules for their customers, monitor the billing cycles and receive instant alerts about subscription activities. The only thing traders need to do is connect their respective plans to their customers and track their subscription activities.

Our recurring model lets you build subscription forms like Fixed billing & Metered billing.

Related Post: Everything you need to know about Recurring Payments

Fixed Billing:

You can charge your customers for the items or products / services that are fixed in this type of billing. You can set the billing frequency and the billing period as per the plan allocated to your customer.

Let’s say you create a one-year plan subscription for your customer. Therefore, for the items/services you provide to your customer, you can set the billing rate to receive payments from your customer. This frequency can be daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, as you choose. The next thing that has set the rate is to set the duration of the billing cycle. This will determine the number of times the customer pays for your service.

For example, you want to create a broadband subscription for 1 year and want to collect the money every month. You will have to set the billing frequency to ‘monthly’ and billing cycle as ’12 months’. Now, your customer will pay you every month for 1 year.

Metered Billing:

In metered billing, according to the use of the products / services you have provided, you charge your customer. The specification of the billing cycle & the billing rate for the billing meter is identical to the fixed billing as mentioned above.

Only difference here is that at the end of the billing cycle, you charge the customer according to the use of your customer’s items / services. So you charge the customer on the last date of his billing frequency, i.e. on the last day of the month, if there is a metered billing subscription for 12 times per month. You can easily add products and update your plan according to the use of the customer and pay it accordingly.

Manage Subscription from Dashboard:

You have a dashboard that allows you to easily manage and track all the subscriptions you have made. Based on your operation, your subscriptions will have certain status. If you’ve just created a subscription and have not delegated it to any client, the subscription will have the status of’ draft.’ Likewise, subscriptions will be given, charged, unpaid, expired, stopped, cancelled.

You can handle all of these subscriptions from a single dashboard. In a few clicks you can even send payment notifications to clients.

Quick Invoices:

Create online invoice and send invoices to your customers quickly via email & SMS and just wait for payments in your bank account. Share the customer invoice payment links and allow them to pay online. It would be easy to prepare an invoice as your customers & products are already made. To start with, you must create an invoice number that will be unique to that specific invoice. In addition, simply select the customer to whom you wish to send an invoice. Pick the billing & shipping address of the customer that you entered (when creating database customers)

Provide Multiple Payment Options for your Customers:

There are often cases where consumers prefer to make partial payments to you. Keeping this in mind, we will allow you to create splits on your invoice’s total amount payable. For example, if your invoice’s total payable sum is Rs.1600, you can build splits of let’s say Rs. 400 each. In this way, your customer can pay the sum of Rs.1600 in 4 splits (each of Rs.400) which will enable your customers to increase their flexibility in payment and retention of customers.

Invoice Management:

From the dashboard, you can easily access every single invoice you build or issue, or just draft & save. You can access and edit the invoices that you created and did not issue to any customer.

Smart Billing advantages for retailers Receive transactions in a timely manner Well-predicted cash flow, Strong retention of customers, Receive fast and safe payments with acknowledgment, Real-time payment alerts.

Digital Payment Guru provides smart billing that simplifies the accounting system efficiently, with ease of operation in a timely manner and removes the manual audit of transactions to a greater extent.

mobile pos

Advantages of Mobile POS

A mobile POS system consists of POS applications that can be installed on Windows or iPad devices, allowing the workers to communicate with customers wherever they are in your shop.

In a recent survey, 52.8 percent of shoppers said they’re searching for tablet-carrying retail staff; meaning they want the best technology for your squad.

So, what market advantages can these mobile point selling systems bring to your company?

Minimise walkouts and showrooming

As soon as your customer walks in your store, they are looking to confirm that the product meeting their requirement is readily available in stock, know the cost of product, and answer some relevant questions to help them decide whether they want to purchase.

Shoppers frequently feel reluctant to reach the counter to ask a question. Most will simply go out (often engaging in showrooming) if you don’t quickly present to them this key decision-making information as they browse your store.

You can intercept the process with a Mobile POS solution and proactively engage the customer, armed with all the information in your POS system to make the sale easier.

The integrated mobile point of sale program empowers the employees to quickly find specific items and to provide real-time inventory availability, pricing and a host of other product information. It will use Google-like fuzzy matching so that workers are assured that their searches will return specific products or provide the closest match to offer a selection of alternatives, increasing the likelihood of winning the deal.

When providing a great shopping experience, the ability to quickly pull up product information and pricing specifics when engaging with the consumer is crucial.

It also allows the employees to close the sale with enticing deals that will not weaken the bottom line.

Where there is no inventory of appropriate items in store, the workers can see what is available in other locations in real time and arrange automatic stock transfers for home delivery and pick-up from other outlets.

You can even integrate in-store display browsing with all the stock in your store network that the customer can search and make quick purchases.

Cross sell and Up sell to maximize the basket size:

An innovative Mobile Point Sale platform allows the employees to engage consumers in the shop they are interested in, and then quickly identify and offer them a selection of up-selling and cross-selling items to increase basket size. Staff can easily identify what items to choose for up-sell / cross-sell is specific to each situation / customer. This takes into account the old stock, the items labelled and the inventory available at other locations or outlets.

Drive named sales and reward loyal customers

Capturing customer information is easy and reliable to see your phone screen and to correct any possible errors on your mobile POS display.

You can encourage the customer to provide these details using built-in loyalty programs. Your staff can then pull up demographic information for occasional shopping / cross-selling on their mobile POS such as age and gender when they visit. For example, they could cross-sell for men and children when they know that a customer has a husband and children. If the customer has a buying history, the sales team can take advantage of previous purchases to suggest items related to past sales.

Selling via pop-up stores

A mobile POS device is your ideal solution when you sell at trade shows, car park sales, markets or pop-up shops. With the Mobile POS app, stock levels between all your stores, including your eCommerce webstore, are changed in real time, giving you a clear idea of what to sell at any time.

Lower shrinkage in-store

Because your sales team has more time to engage in-store buyers, shoplifting, operational mistakes, and retailer fraud may decrease common shrinkage. With less time behind the counter, staff may concentrate on other sales tactics to boost profits.
