Cashfree Introduces ‘Embedded Payments’: A First for India’s Platform-Centric Solutions

Cashfree Payments

Cashfree Payments has introduced ‘Embedded Payments’. This launch marks India’s inaugural platform-centric payment solution tailored for software platforms, aiming to streamline payment processes for businesses and enhance their growth potential.

Akash Sinha, the CEO and Co-Founder of Cashfree Payments, expressed enthusiasm about the innovation, stating, “At Cashfree Payments, innovation is at the heart of our operations. We are excited to launch Embedded Payments, a pioneering platform-centric payment solution in India, designed to simplify payments for businesses and consumers alike. Our state-of-the-art solution is crafted to facilitate easy integrations for platforms, enabling them to effortlessly onboard businesses, manage accounts, and handle payments.”

‘Embedded Payments’ is poised to transform the payment experiences offered by software platforms, including Enterprise Resource Planning (ERPs), Customer Relationship Management (CRMs), SaaS, billing platforms, and similar entities. Traditionally, the integration of payment systems has posed challenges such as complexity, subpar user experiences, operational burdens, and compliance hurdles. Consequently, online businesses often resort to independently integrating payment systems. The ‘Embedded Payments’ integration allows end-users to conduct payments directly within the platform, negating the need for redirection and thereby reducing disruption and drop-off rates.

Furthermore, ‘Embedded Payments alleviate the burden of compliance for digital platforms by incorporating stringent risk and security measures and ensuring adherence to the latest RBI guidelines. This innovation opens up new avenues for monetization and supports over 120 payment methods without necessitating redirections or external interfaces, unlike conventional payment gateways. It simplifies the process for platforms to onboard users as merchants and manage payments, refunds, settlements, and other post-payment activities with minimal integration effort.
