Use cases#

Payouts can be used for any type of business requirement. Few use cases are provided below.

Recurring Vendor Payments#

Businesses need to make payouts to their vendors at regular intervals for the goods delivered and services rendered. These payouts are generally recurring in nature and are thus planned payouts. Such use cases can be served by making NEFT and RTGS payouts to vendor contacts.

Customer Refunds and Cashbacks#

B2C businesses generally have to deal with customer refunds and cashbacks. These payouts need to be processed immediately. If they are not, it can lead to negative customer experience, loss in reputation and brand value and ultimately reduction in sales. IMPS and UPI based payouts through APIs can help firms automate their refunds and cashback processes and ensure they are instantaneous.

Loan Disbursements by Financial Institutions#

Financial Institutions such as NBFCs and Lending Aggregators need to disburse loans to their borrowers as soon as the loan is sanctioned. They cannot afford to lose business due to the non-working hours of banks. IMPS based payouts help these firms provide instantaneous payouts and thus improve borrower experience.
