First things first, we have to apologize for taking so long to start operating Payd. From the overwhelming amount of signups and inquiries we have received, we know a lot of you have been planning to do great things with it. Rest assured, the time has been put to good use. Moreover, online payment is no easy game in India.
Secondly, we are not live *yet*, but you can expect that in a few weeks. We’re running some final tests and making sure everything’s working the way it should. Security comes first.
The first version of the product is fully ready. We did not feel very good about our previous design, so we redesigned every last pixel. We would like to give you a sneak peek at our sexy new design in this post, so it’s going to be more visuals and less talk.
A customer shops online on a website integrated with Payd’s payment gateway. Payments are processed through Payd’s REST-based APIs, that can be easily integrated into any system, written in any language, within minutes.
A customer looks up ‘MyPizza’ on Payd, sitting inside the shop. Shops can accept payments even without a website. Their profile on Payd acts more or less like a social network profile, only for payments.
A freelancer uses Payd to get paid at the comfort of his home. Payd can be used by any small entity, e.g. a college program committee selling tickets, a mom-and-pop store selling homemade sweets etc.
A buyer interacts with the merchant through Payd’s “transaction timeline”. Requesting a payment, requesting/making refunds etc. take just a click of a button. Payd provides a complete infrastructure to merchants and their customers.
Payd is designed to operate with minimum intervention from the merchant. However, the “merchant dashboard” on Payd’s website is a powerhouse of functionality. Through the dashboard, a merchant can link her bank account, request payments, issue refunds, print custom reports and much more..
This is just the tip of the iceberg. There are a lot of other intuitive features built into Payd. There are several others waiting to be. Moreover, as we learn more about you, we will tweak Payd to match your dreams.
— Love, Team Payd
