With an aim to make grocery purchases more accessible from your nearest friendly store or other local businesses, ePayLater and Goodbox have joined hands to offer “Buy now Pay Later” service to customers.
With this service, customers can enjoy the classic and convenient experience of making purchases from their favorite stores and settling bills at a later date. Eligible customers get an option to snooze payment with just click of a button and thereby save time waiting in payment queue or going through hassles of traditional payment methods like credit cards.
Commenting on this development, Atishay Kumar, Product Head and CTO of ePayLater said, “ePayLater does away with the hassles of traditional payment channels which involve punching in lengthy card details, multiple page redirects, and authentications and offers a completely frictionless checkout experience. Customers will have 14 days from the date of purchase and can pay anytime during the period, instead of having to pay at the time of making a purchase. Even better, they can club multiple purchases in a single aggregated payment. At the moment, this service covers grocery and food ordering, but will soon be extended to Bill payments as well”.
Abey Zachariah, CEO of Goodbox resonated, “This is transformational in many ways. Goodbox has already created a hyper-local platform that has helped thousands of small merchants sell to customers in their vicinity through digital channels. ePayLater on Goodbox enables customers to purchase multiple times from local businesses within a certain limit and pay within 14 day of purchase date. The one click payment approval is by far the smoothest on our platform and unlike wallets, one doesn’t need to load it upfront. The local merchant doesn’t need to worry about the financial risk in extending credit to customers now on as he is assured of payments on purchases”
