Ecommerce major Snapdeal has partnered with NPCI to allow users make QR-based digital payments at the time of accepting delivery of their orders. The facility is aimed especially at new or first-time users who are not comfortable in pre-paying for the goods at the time of purchase. Customers will be offered the QR-code payment option at their doorstep as part of the delivery process.
This feature will work with all UPI-payment options, including Bhim, Google Pay, PhonePe, Paytm and other UPI apps provided by banks. Cooperative banks and regional rural banks (RRBs) will also be able to pay via this feature. Aims to increase the usage of UPI by offering hassle-free payment across a variety of merchants.
