Harshil & Shashank are IIT Roorkie alumni of 2013 batch. Bored of their well paying jobs and having free time they decided to do some side projects. For one of those side projects they had to accept online payments. They talked to all the large players. But they figured out that nobody catered to startups at that time. Reason behind is most of the online payments at that time were dominated by large enterprises.
Gap in industry
Most of the products were build up for large enterprises. To get on board with these companies was tough job and a lengthy process. They asked for huge paperwork, proper office setup etc and the on-boarding time was at least a month. Even if one was able to get onboard the technology stack was very outdated. All the then existing companies were catering to large enterprises because they controlled majority of the market.
Idea behind RazorPay
It was early 2014 both of the founders had to face this difficulty. At the same time so many startups were budding. So they thought why not build something for these startups and they will also be able to grow with them.
Reason behind success
There are many reasons that contributed to the success of razor pay. Some of them are Reducing the fees/percentage and making sure having the lowest in the market. Very high retention rates because of maintaining the quality of services throughout. Being very first to introduce UPI & bharat pay support in a B2B company also being a only dedicated B2B payment company. Best in the industry support available via email, phone and chat based support to help you in your every step. Bagging some of the large merchants like Zomato, Indigo Airlines, Airtel , OYO and many more. More than these giving very less time for approval/get onboard was the real Key.
