@shashankb I had a POS machine (Mswipe), and HDFC suddenly hit us with a 500 monthly low usage charge if we're not making enough transactions. People weren't using these machines during the pandemic. And the most annoying part is that they wouldn't give any SMS notification for that 'fee', which is the case for most merchant accounts, so can't really complain. As expected, majority of users returned the machines.
I use UPI thru banks app only, credit cards & cash in that order if possible.
Suddenly remembered that Amazon Pay is threatening to make my Pay account inactive I don't load money or do kyc. I never even opened that account.
Does one have to load money into Amazon Pay in 500, 1000, 2000, 3000 the options given there? for after clicking on these options it populates another filed where we can make changes. Would it support 100 or 200 bucks via credit card?
I never really had the utility for it to be honest, I offer services and my clients pay through IMPS or NEFT. The branch forced me to take the machine, because I wasn't willing to open the premium current account with them.
@Samuel so, how does it work actually? If I am paying you Rs 1000 using my credit card, how much exactly do you get after settlement? What exactly is the "terms and conditions" of MDR (point 1)?
The local kirana shop asks me to pay the total bill in parts by using the card multiple times, each 600 or 700 rupees. My dad went to buy jewelleries and the shopkeeper asked him to pay extra 2% for credit and 1% for debit cards. I know that's illegal but he is my mother's friend.
@royalroy HDFC generally takes 2.75% from each transaction processed using these machines. They were charging me less, because of the industry I selected. The machine I had supported DB, CC via swipe and NFC. It would connect to my phone using Bluetooth and I had an app which would easily authenticate it. IMO it's far easy to collect payments using payment gateways such as Payu and Razorpay. I have Razorpay, Payu and Instamojo. Payu has been pushing me to upgrade my gateway to accept international payments (which I actually require), for which these are the commercials:
Charges - 3% + GST
International Cards accepted will be MasterCard and VISA cards only. (Gateway won't get AMEX or DISCOVER card support).
Note: GST is 18%.
