Hypto Banking & Collections FAQs
1. What is the Hypto Banking stack?
Hypto Banking stack allows you to create unique virtual accounts for your customers on demand and accept payments via NEFT, RTGS, IMPS and UPI.
2. What is the use of virtual accounts?
Virtual accounts help you reconcile payments from NEFT, RTGS, IMPS and UPI – we send you an instant call-back notification as soon as the payment is received along with the complete remitter details. This help you capture and understand the source of the payments in real- time and take action accordingly.
3. What are the use cases of virtual accounts?
Some sample use cases are mentioned below –
- Crypto currency exchanges can create unique virtual accounts for each of their customers and start accepting INR deposits in real-time through online fund transfers
- Gaming companies can create a storage wallet in the form of virtual accounts and customers can fund their wallet using online fund transfer to start gaming instantly
- Lenders and fin-tech companies can use virtual accounts to match off and reconcile payments with which customers have paid how much at what time instantly.
4. How is virtual account different from a payment gateway?
A payment gateway is primarily used for one-time transactions or purchases and is very expensive – approximately 2% of the value goes as fees. Virtual accounts can be used for both one-time payments as well as recurring payments (such as funding your crypto wallet) and the charges are minimal.
