What has Cashfree Payments been up to in 2022? 

In July 2022, Cashfree Payments has launched a solution that helps businesses verify the Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN) of entities they work with. This GSTIN verification system enables businesses to verify the identity of vendors and partners in real time. 

GSTIN verification can be used by ecommerce marketplaces, B2B reselling companies, BFSI segments like business insurance providers and lending platforms, tax processing, and return filing platforms. 

In June 2022, Cashfree Payments has teamed with NPCI to provide tokenisation solutions on RuPay cards for its merchants. The tokenisation solution is named Token Vault, and it helps merchants provide their customers with the option to save cards on the merchant website or app and process card payments securely while being RBI compliant. 

Following this partnership, Cashfree Payments has become a certified and compliant payment tokenisation service provider across card networks such as RuPay, Mastercard, and Visa. 

In April 2022, Cashfree Payments has launched the Aadhaar Verification system for authenticating bank accounts, PAN, UPI, and IFSC. The system represents an addition to the Cashfree Payments Verification Suite, and it offers a real time user identity verification process by matching the Aadhaar number entered with the Aadhaar database.
