Indian online payment solutions provider PayU has launched the QR enabled EFT payment option.
The move will enable businesses and customers to monitor high value EFT payment transactions in real time.
It comes after PayU rolled out EFT payment option enabling offline and online transactions.
With the new option, the company seeks to address the uncertainty around payment processes. Additionally, it will eliminate the need for the businesses to reach bank customer care centres for payment status updates.
PayU India Compulsive Businesses senior vice-president Alim Khan said: “When it comes to time bound payments such as application fees or tender registration, it becomes particularly stressful to customers and businesses, as they don’t receive real time updates about the status of their payments.
“This could become a major source of anxiety for customers especially where large sums and time bound payment is involved.
“The new feature gives the exact status of their transaction and provides them a sense of control over their payment, reducing anxiety. We hope this encourages more customers and businesses to transact online.”
