Online payment solutions provider, PayU has launched a multi-functional mobile app for merchants designed to conveniently track their businesses on the move, where merchants can use the PayU mobile app to monitor their business performance and request for payments.
According to PayU frictionless merchant service is at the core of its business priorities and it aims to simplify business for the small and medium merchants and augment the ease of business for 63 million MSMEs in the country.
Referring to a recent Mckinsey report, PayU points out that India is expected to see a 40% growth in internet users to 800 million and double the number of smartphone users, reaching 700 million by 2023. At the same time, an Assocham-PWC India study was cited indicating that digital payments in India are anticipated to more than double to $135.2 billion in 2023 from the current $64.8 billion.

The PayU mobile app enables merchants with complete account access, allowing them to manage their business on-the-go and get real-time updates. A simple user-interface delivers rich capabilities to view and track transactions through a new dashboard, giving merchants’ quick access to the most important business data. Besides allowing merchants to conduct a request for payments with a few taps, the PayU mobile app also provides a detailed reporting dashboard that helps merchants analyze business performance and track revenue inflow & issue refunds. The app helps merchants create their digital identity through a personalized website to collect payments.
