2019-year in Review

As 2019 draws to a close, we wanted to thank you for being an integral part of this thriving network. The year has been a successful one for us and our merchant partner ecosystem has grown considerably to 150,000 merchants strong and counting.

Here's a quick recap of the big highlights from 2019:
EMI-led transactions
EMI-led transactions on a steady rise
2019 saw an incredible growth in EMI-led transactions. It establishes the fact that product affordability is a key concern of shoppers, especially while purchasing big-ticket items. By enabling the EMI purchase option for debit and credit card holders across renowned banks directly from the POS machine, you can generate more sales. On our part, we are constantly expanding our network of EMI issuers and have partnered with leading banks across public and private sector, including HDFC Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, SBI, Axis Bank, ICICI Bank, etc.

Gifting
Personalized gifting is one area which is witnessing tremendous growth as most organizations realize the value in giving the ‘Power of Choice’ to the gift recipient. At the start of the FY20, we made a strategic investment and announced a merger with Qwikcilver. Also, we have recently launched the Pine Perks RuPay Gift Card, a co-branded prepaid gift card that is redeemable across the RuPay network.

Paper POS - The next big digital payment solution you need

Here’s the next big business idea to consider in the new year. We are now shipping Paper POS, a new and highly effective payment acceptance solution, when you need to accept payments across a range of digital payment modes.

The Paper POS enables customers to make payments using either UPI or Bharat QR. We also offer the benefit of customization so that you can have your store branding e.g. logo printed on the Paper POS. In addition to the text notification confirming the sale, you will also have the option of getting the transaction chargeslip printed.

What our customers say about us?
Manyavar

"The only challenge that I faced was in understanding all the features and processes that their POS machine offers. However, this too was addressed by them through their Academy training programs. Six people from my team enrolled themselves for the training program of Academy by Pine Labs, which explained all the processes to us, step by step. Today, my workforce is empowered to quickly perform various forms of transactions and we are able to deliver a better customer experience"
