Snapdeal announces its collaboration with National Payments Corporation of India for introducing an option to pay by QR code on delivery. This is for the customers shopping on its platform.
The step is to streamline the consumer shopping experience and also to onboard new customers.
The step will reduce the need for cash payment, which is today the top priority of the businesses in order to reduce contact and therefore ensure better safety during the ongoing pandemic.
With this, the customers can make the payment once goods are delivered to them.
“Given Snapdeal’s strong connect with buyers in non-metro cities, this integration is also aimed at increasing the usage and adoption of UPI-based payments in smaller cities,” said Snapdeal in a statement.
The QR payment option works with all the UPI-payment options, including Bhim, Google Pay, WhatsApp Pay, PhonePe and Paytm. Moreover, it is compatible with UPI apps from many private and public sector banks including HDFC, SBI and ICICI amongst others, according to Snapdeal.
