Why Should You Collect Payments Online?

One of the most important considerations that a merchant makes while evaluating online payment options is how they compare against offline payment options- such as cash and cheques, or online payment options that were not build with merchant payments in mind- such as NEFT.

Thought I’d  list out all the tangible benefits in accepting payments online:

Instamojo Tips: Use Variants to keep it simple

Instamojo lets you sell anything with just a link. So irrespective of which product or service that you have to collect payments for, you just have to create a link and embed it on your website or share on your social channels.

Does that mean I have to create a link for each of your products?

No. You can make a single link for different products, or different product options.

Even if they have different prices?

Of course! There are many ways to do that. One of them is using Variants.

Variants are ideal when you want to manage it with a single link. The advantage of using variants is that your customer has the option to choose what he wants, and it is straightforward to setup.

Recently, we launched Physical goods option for product sellers to collect payments simply from their customers.

All you have to do is to follow these steps to get started with the same.

1. Login to your Instamojo Dashboard and ‘Create a link’.

2. If you have limited number of products (SKU’s), you can simply create individual link for each product and add them on your website. Just have a look at Yummy Chocos and Desi Hangover doing the same on their websites.

3. If the number of products to be sold is higher, you can simply create one single payment link for your brand with the pay what you want option. Pret Collections and Online Beauty Store are collecting payments for their wide product range in a similar manner.

4. You can customize the URL of your Payment Id and share it with your customers for instant payment collection on Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Email, SMS & your website too.

Technology – Performance Journey at Instamojo

Ask any engineer and he’d agree: With growth, comes performance & scale challenges. Instamojo is no different. At the rate we are growing, we did face more than hiccups over time.

December 2013:
Our only source of knowing the performance is Google Analytics for page load time. A average load time of 18s is not good at all. We believed it is time we include performance into our core priorities. The first basic rule of performance – Measure, and New Relic fits our bill perfectly with our stack.

At this time, our average server response time is approximately 370ms, but with many outliers crossing 30sec. The next 2 months, we fine-tuned our integration with New Relic to identify proper bottlenecks whenever and wherever we can.
