New Delhi, Feb 21: Low-cost online grocery store Grofers on Monday declared the launch of the Unified Payment Interface (UPI) payment method for all its Android application clients. After the launch, all Android clients of Grofers can utilize UPI to pay for their bought staple goods and other provisions on their smartphone application.
The payment option, which has seen a fast approval in a year ago, is indicated on the checkout page post which the clients can pick any UPI application to make their payments. Clients can continue with the sale and make the cash payment by means of the application they already used to verify it. The expense would be straightforwardly charged from the clients' connected financial balance.
The payment method, which has seen rapid adoption in last year, is reflected on the checkout page post which the customers can choose any UPI app to make their payments. Users can proceed with the transaction and make the payment via the app they previously used to authenticate it. The amount will be directly debited from the users' linked bank account.
In case of an unsuccessful transaction, the money would be restored in the user's account linked to the UPI ID, within four to five business days.
"We believe UPI would take over from NetBanking as a preferred payment channel and would help make shopping on Grofers even more seamless and secure. In UPI, we see the next revolution in digital payments in India. Moreover, we have seen higher retention amongst users who pay via the online option. UPI would help us in driving that further along with enabling easier payments for our users," said Albinder Dhindsa, Co-founder and CEO, Grofers.
