What is a payment gateway?

A payment gateway is an application that is used to processes payments made through credit/debit cards, net banking, and other payment merchants. The payment gateway's primary purpose is to act as an intermediary between the customer, the merchant’s website, and the bank.

Features of Instamojo:

Payment collection:

With Instamojo you can now receive payments from your customers, supporters, or donors easily through all types of payment modes such as debit/credit cards, net banking, e-wallets, EMI, and UPI. If you don’t have a website, Instamojo provides you with the option to create custom payment links which you can send directly to customers through SMS, email, Facebook, WhatsApp, etc.

Easy sharing options:

When you create a custom payment link, you can instantly share it to social media, email, SMS, WhatsApp, etc. right from the dashboard. You can even schedule payment links to be sent out at a later time and date. If you need to send the link to multiple people at once, you can upload an excel sheet with the contact details of everyone and schedule it.

Payment button:

If you wish to use Instamojo on your website, you can embed payment buttons on any of your pages. This button is mobile friendly, and anyone accessing your website on a mobile device can also use it. Instamojo auto-generates the code for the payment button which you can copy-paste it to any of your site’s pages. Customers using the payment button will never be redirected out of your website as the payment gateway opens directly on your site as a pop-up. And lastly, the button is customizable to suit your website; so you can change the text and colour of it.
