Cashfree Payments and Shopify add onsite payments for Indian merchants

Thursday 21 September 2023 09:32 CET | News

India-based payments and API banking company Cashfree Payments has tapped Shopify in a bid to extend onsite payments for Indian merchants.


Via this partnership, Cashfree Payments seeks to launch onsite payments with cards for merchants in India. Following the introduction of this new feature, merchants are expected to be able to offer a better checkout experience for their clients by collecting payment information directly on their websites. 

As outlined in the official press release, before introducing this new capability, customers were redirected to a new website to complete their transactions – which led to delayed order completion and resulted in lower-intent customers dropping off. By tackling this pain point, onsite payments are said to offer a better checkout experience for all parties involved.

Moreover, by eliminating the need for customers to be redirected to a third-party page, merchants are anticipated to enjoy a reduced transaction time, fewer customer drop-offs, and higher revenues.

The onsite payments feature on Shopify was initially solely available to stores in the US. The partnership between Cashfree Payments and Shopify currently enables customers to pay via credit and debit cards – however, additional payment options are reportedly going to be added in the future.

Cashfree Payments has announced a collaboration with Shopify in an effort to provide onsite payments for Indian merchants.
