Cashfree Payments ensuring payouts at speed in India

  • Cashfree Payments bulk disbursal product Payouts grows by more than 100% in FY22
  • Peak processing at over 1000 Payouts per second
  • Merchants from the e-commerce and financial services sectors leading the growth

When it comes to payouts, businesses want to be able to have a seamless and secure experience. Over the years, payout methods have evolved to enable faster and more efficient transactions.

One of the biggest hindrances to e-commerce initially was the lengthy time of payouts companies had to go through. In the past, payouts for payment disbursal could take up to a few days, be it via banks or even e-commerce platforms. Thankfully, technology has now enabled these processes to be much faster.

In India, there are about 41 million transactions per day, making the county a global leader in real-time payments. When it comes to payments disbursal, the need for speed is essential to keep the economy going as well, especially with most processes being digitized today. For businesses, anything short of a near real-time payment disbursal may not be favorable.

As such, Cashfree Payments, a payments and API banking solutions company in India announced that it continues leading the payments disbursal in the country with over 50% market share. The reforms and growth that the Indian economy is seeing have resulted in a surge of interest in digital payments, and contactless payments are becoming the new normal. In the fiscal year 2022, Cashfree Payments has seen merchants from the e-commerce and financial services sectors leading the growth in disbursals.

The company’s bulk disbursal product, Payouts, surged over 100% in the fiscal year 2022 compared to the fiscal year 2021. The ease of onboarding, seamless integration, quick turnaround time, better user experience, and customer-centric support systems have helped the company to serve its customers while leading disbursals.
