This Plugin enables WooCommerce shopowners to get direct, instant payments through UPI apps like BHIM, Google Pay, Whatsapp, PayTM, PhonePe or any banking UPI app, thus saving payment gateway charges.
UPI is a payment standard owned by National Payment Corporation of India, a government owned entity. UPI works 24×7 and is free subject to prevalent government guidelines.
In PCs, plugin will show a QR code that can be scanned by the UPI application and payment can be made. Payments come to the shopowners bank account directly. There is no payment gateway involved and saves money for shop owners

How does it help me?
By using the plugin, you avoid the payment gateway charges that are part of every transaction.
What are prerequisites for customer?
Customer should be in India. This is as per Government requirements for UPI payments.
What are prerequisites for shopowner?
Shopowner should have a WooCommerce ecommerce website. It should be WooCommerce 2.1 version or above
Shopowner should create a UPI VPA connecting his/her bank account and then configure plugin with that VPA. After that, all payments will come to the bank account.
How does the shopowner know about payment by a customer?
Shopowner should install BHIM application in his/her mobile. Whenever a customer makes a payment, shopowner can see the Transactions in BHIM application. It will show the Order ID. With this, shop owner can know that customer has paid for the order.
What about shipping, order processing, refund etc?
This plugin adds another payment option. Operations like shipping, order processing etc should be handled by shop owner as being done now
I have a WordPress site (not WooCommerce). How can I receive payments?
You can use Kiasa’s WordPress UPI Payment Plugin . This is for non-wooCommerce sites (plain WordPress sites). You can use it for collection of tuition fees, collections for events, donations etc using UPI.
I dont have a WooCommerce site or WordPress site. I sell through whatsapp, facebook. How do I use this?
You can try Ezeepaylink for an alternative which allows payment links for such an use case.

All fine, but this does not allow payments with debit card etc, etc?
This plugin works for a small shop owner by saving him/her the payment gateway charges. As the store grows in size and customer mix, he/she needs to upgrade to payment gateway to accept all kinds of payment options and be ready to pay the gateway charges. Till then, this is very useful.
I still have a question!
