Mobile commerce platform FreeCharge has introduced a new feature called ‘Chat and Pay’, which will enable Person-to-Person (P2P) and Person-to-Merchant (P2M) interfaces for Digital Payments.
FreeCharge says the service will help customers to chat and pay in a secure way to friends, family and merchants in less than 5 seconds. It will also enable merchants to accept digital payments in less than 1 minute after registering on the FreeCharge App.
Announcing the launch of the service, Govind Rajan, Chief Operating Officer, FreeCharge said “Our ambition at Freecharge is to create a Payment OS for a Digital India. Today, we have taken a bold step in achieving this goal. Payments are often social; they are in fact a very human interaction. Chat N Pay brings this human emotion to payments, making them deeply engaging. We are confident Chat N Pay will accelerate the adoption of digital payments”.
He further added that ‘Chat and Pay’ will make digital payments ubiquitous in the offline space. Merchants, Govind said, can start accepting digital payments by just downloading the app at Zero investment.
‘Chat and Pay’ will be available on Android and will be available on iOS and Windows over the next few weeks.
