Here I am providing you with more insights about Paysharp, and it’s founder along with the vision and mission.
Let’s learn more about the Founder - Krishna Kumar Mani
I am a serial entrepreneur, and PaySharp is my third startup. Earlier co-founded two startups in online assessment and hyperlocal industry. Sathish is my Co-Founder and CTO, and we know each other for more than seven years.
Which payment gateways are necessary in today's world and how swiftness of payment gateway helps in generating higher revenues?
Payment gateways almost used in all B2C business, but most B2B business stays away from payment gateways due to higher transaction charges, because payment gateway charges in certain percentage per transaction, in B2B business ticket size, is oversized. Hence, transaction charge is very high for example B2B payment ticket size as 2 Lac if they pay 2% per transaction charge they have to pay around INR 4000 per marketing, so they were mostly not using payment gateways. The PaySharp provides fixed-fee payment gateway for B2Bs which does not charge based on transaction value, charge only a small flat fee of INR 25 or less per transaction no upper limit, transaction value can be INR 20,000 or 2 Lac or 10 Lac or higher, charge is flat.
It is more than 20X cheaper than other payment gateways
What is the uniqueness about PaySharp?
Our uniqueness is our killer pricing model, a fixed fee per transaction, others payment gateways are charging in percentage-based pricing. We are charging a fixed flat fee. We also do the same working day settlement whereas other payment gateway takes T+3 days to do settlement.
Who are your competitions, and how are PaySharp better than them?
There are numerous payment gateways in today's market. Many payment gateways are Consumer-centric, that means B2C focused. There is quite less number of B2B payment solutions. So, we don’t have direct competitors. Again we have an advantage over the pricing part also as we have kept extremely low pricing of payment transfer which is adaptive to the B2B retail model.
Being an entrepreneur, what challenges do you face?
Honestly speaking, Entrepreneurship is a challenging journey we don’t know how long it takes to reach the destination. Sometimes we don’t see the goal because the destination will change due to pivot ;). As an entrepreneur, you should learn to enjoy the challenging journey rather than the destination.
How technology is impacting India around, and how payment gateways like PaySharp are changing the shopping experience of B2B eCommerce?
In India, E-Commerce payments modes initially cash on delivery dominated the payment methods then the customer habits changed to debit cards payments. Now, UPI is dominating the market share in B2C payments.
But in B2B payments, NEFT / RTGS are primary payment modes, Pay sharp powering the checkout with payment methods like NEFT / RTGS / IMPS payments and automating the reconciliations and completing the order without manual efforts.
How hard is it to have a work-life balance as a startup founder, and how do you manage it?
As a serial entrepreneur, we see work-life balance as work is life, holidays are for employees we founders work almost all days. I want to quote it, for an incubator who o incubated my previous startup. During the orientation session they told, you have to inform your family members you are doing a startup, work more than anything, so ask them to understand.
Luckily we are blessed with good family members.
What were the hurdles PaySharp faced during the development of technology?
We are working with payments, so we want to choose the right tools and vendors carefully, we tried many tools and evoluted many platforms and carefully picked the right ones, it delayed our development and launch, but it is necessary.
Where will you see PaySharp in five years from now?
We are continuously innovating new things in B2B payments, and soon want to be a leader in B2B payments.
