Downtime Updates

View various downtimes, grouped across different payment methods.


Downtime is a period during which one or more payment options under-perform, leading to considerable delays in payment processing. These downtimes are due to technical issues or outages at Razorpay's partner or issuing banks side. Razorpay informs you about the downtime to communicate it to your customers.
