Accepting Payments in India with Razorpay
Most payment gateways in India are not small business-friendly. There’s often a long onboarding process, and integration is cumbersome. Razorpay is a new entrant to the market that aims to change all that, by simplifying the flow of online payments through a clean, easy-to-use & developer-friendly payment gateway. We’re partnering with them to make online payments easy for our Indian customers.
Razorpay has a completely online onboarding process so that you can start accepting payments in your existing bank account itself. Our integration embeds their payment form in your Hiveage invoice, so there are no annoying redirects or popups during the transaction. Their service is 100% PCI DSS Compliant, and comes with 24/7 support.
Razorpay’s pricing is simple and straightforward : Their ‘Startup’ plan, which processes only domestic payments, has no setup or annual fee, and charges 2.5 % + service tax per successful transaction. The ‘Business’ plan can process international payments, and has a Rs. 5000 setup fee and a Rs. 5000 annual maintenance fee, with a charge of just 2 % + service tax per successful transaction.
As a company that has its roots in Sri Lanka, we know first-hand the many difficulties faced by small businesses in the South Asian region when it comes to accepting online payments. We’re big fans of Razorpay’s initiative to make it painless and efficient. As our contribution to their efforts, we’re offering the Razorpay module with our free plan till the end of this year. We hope many small businesses in India will benefit from our partnership!
