Targets 30 crore Indians with a first-of-its-kind Scan Now & Pay Later



Vivifi India Finance Private Limited, a Hyderabad based NBFC, has launched FlexPay, India’s first payment option that offers credit on UPI. FlexPay will empower millions of Indians to ‘Scan Now & Pay Later’, using a line of credit when they do not have funds available in their bank accounts or virtual wallets.


Targeting the 300 million Indians who do not have a credit card, the first-in-India product will facilitate offline purchases by scanning any UPI QR code or a UPI ID – a transaction model that has been adopted across India. FlexPay will facilitate credit to all salaried and self-employed Indians so that they can purchase any product or service even when they are out of money.


Aligned with our Prime Minister’s vision for a Digital India and Atma Nirbhar Bharat, Vivifi leveraged the most sophisticated payment infrastructure in the world and launched a credit line on the UPI platform.


With this launch, Vivifi is challenging the current trend among various FinTechs that seem to offer small Kirana stores the tools to manage credit risk but burden them with selling non-core financial products to their customer.


Sharing his insights, Anil commented, “Over 12 million local provisional / Kirana stores across the country do not process credit card payments but offer credit by themselves to retain customers. With this launch, these micro-entrepreneurs do not have to manage credit risk for themselves but focus on their core business, as their customers now have access to a meaningful credit option.”


Vivifi is already making headway in this effort. FlexSalary, its initial digital credit offering which it launched 3 years ago, is currently receiving over 5 lakh monthly digital visitors and more than 1 lakh credit applications. Vivifi believes that FlexPay will provide a true digital credit card like experience in a country which currently has just 56 Million credit cardholders.


FlexPay is geared to provide 400 million plus under-served customers as well as prime customers a ubiquitous, contactless credit card-like experience for the first time in India. It will be accepted by every merchant, from small Kirana stores to large retailers. Built on UPI 2.0, FlexPay will also enable peer-to-peer transactions.
