FreeCharge, India’s leading digital wallet and payments firm and UrbanClap, India’s largest mobile services marketplace today announced their partnership for cashless payments across 97 service categories listed on UrbanClap.
With this partnership, FreeCharge customers can avail services like photographers, electricians, home cleaning and repairs, salon at home and several others across top 8 cities in the country including Delhi/NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Kolkata and Ahmedabad.
In order to avail the service, once the customer books a service on UrbanClap, he will get an option to pay via Cash on Delivery or online after service completion. The customer just needs to select pay online after completion and use FreeCharge to make the payment to UrbanClap once the service is completed.
Commenting on the partnership, Sudeep Tandon, Chief Business Officer, FreeCharge said, “The services landscape in the country is pre-dominantly unstructured and thus relies heavily on cash payments. UrbanClap is doing great in bringing about structure to the sector and provides a massive opportunity for cashless transactions with these services and their payments going online. We envision this partnership playing a key role in moving towards a less cash society and hope it achieves the purpose.”
UrbanClap has more than 1 million unique users on its platform since its launch and has been witnessing online wallets emerge as preferred mode of payments with the ethos of going cashless gaining steam in India.
Speaking on the same, Varun Khaitan, Co-Founder, UrbanClap said, " With the advent of demonetisation, digitisation of payments has been greatly embraced across the country. This makes payments not just easier, but safer too. At UrbanClap a bulk of our payments have moved online. We are excited to partner with FreeCharge towards this as they are leaders in the online wallet space having built a strong product and trust over the last few years"
