Cashfree empowers AutoPe Smart Cards to facilitate payments for Delhi Metro commuters

Thursday 25 March 2021 13:01 CET | News

Cashfree has enabled standing instructions on credit cards for AutoPe, to facilitate payments for Delhi Metro commuters.

According to the press release, AutoPe has a tie-up with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation enabling the auto top-up feature on DMRC smart cards for a safer commute. Called Zero Human Intervention Cards, they allow passengers to automatically pay at the Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) gates of Delhi Metro stations. 

The card allows auto top-up functionality wherein it gets recharged instantly as and when the value of the card falls below INR 100. An automatic recharge of INR 200 gets initiated on the card at the AFC gate itself and the amount gets auto-debited from the customer’s linked bank account or credit card.

Furthermore, Cashfree’s solutions used for this collaboration are:

  • Recurring Payments – Recurring payments in India can be enabled using standing instruction on a card or internet banking. Users will be required to register by downloading the AutoPe app from the app store. They can also register on AutoPe’s website and link their bank account or card to the Metro smart card as a one-time exercise. Once the user’s account is linked and verified, the auto top-up feature gets activated.

  • Payment Gateway – Cashfree’s payment gateway is integrated with AutoPe’s app and website for payment collections.

Prior to this partnership with AutoPe, Delhi Metro commuters were required to either stand in queues or electronically recharge their smart cards. In the case of online recharges, the users had to present their cards at the Add Value Machines (AVMs) for the payment to be validated. AutoPe’s payment solution allows a hassle-free top-up and eliminates any layer of contact or interruption.
