This popular online payment method allows IndusInd customers to pay for e-commerce orders using funds from their bank accounts, with no credit card required to complete the purchase. Paying via direct bank transfer is convenient and fast because consumers don’t need to manually rewrite data or order transfers – they simply log into their bank account and authorize a predefined transfer order.
How does IndusInd Bank work?
From an e-commerce perspective, the process for paying online using an IndusInd bank account is simple: when a customer reaches the checkout page, they simply select IndusInd as the payment method. After logging into their online banking to authorize the order, the customer returns to the checkout page and the funds are sent to the merchant.
There is no need for customers to manually input the order details or create a new bank transfer – when IndusInd is selected as the payment method, a pre-filled transfer order is automatically generated and customers must only log into their online banking in order to authorize it.
After the payment has been authorized, money is sent directly to the merchant.
