BharatPe makes payment acceptance simple by offering merchants a single interface for all UPI apps such as PayTM, PhonePe, Google Pay, BHIM, Mobikwik, Freecharge, True Caller and 100 other UPI apps. Our mission to make payments FREE for all businesses. The intention is to be the utility app for 10 mn+ offline merchants in India for all their business needs. BharatPe is solving for ease of doing business. Payments is our first product and we are working tirelessly to solve for accounting, sourcing of products, lending, customer engagement and compliances for the small businesses.

Project Steps

  • Identify popular marketplaces/ retail stores in & around your College & Hostel Campuses. You can also target other areas such as Markets around Tech Parks/ Corporate Hubs, Community Markets, Large Public Markets, etc. if convenient for you.
  • Conduct a survey on the payment methods used by the modern day retailers. We need to learn how many retailers have started using Online Payment Wallets like PayTM, Google Pay and BHIM UPI.
  • Visit these marketplaces and identify retailers who accept payments through any Online Wallet Apps such as PayTM, PhonePe, Freecharge, Mobikwik, etc. These can be any type of business such as Restaurants, Salons, Grocery, Stationery, etc.
  • Approach the Retailers with the Survey and ask permission to conduct the same. At the end of the survey, speak to the Retailers about BharatPe and its unique proposition, benefits & services and Convince them to sign up on BharatPe for accepting payments from their customers.
  • Once interested, onboard the Retailer/ Merchant by getting them to download and sign-up on the BharatPe Merchant App using their Bank Account No. & IFSC code.
  • Install the Bharatpe merchandise (QR Code Standees & Stickers) at high visibility places in their store such as the Cash Counter & Front Door. Click photos of the installed merchandise and store front as per guidelines and submit the same via a Field Data App as proof of work done.
