Pros

What I like the most about paypal is, it is easy to use in paying and most of all paypal giving a gift reward in every users.
The Paypal program is very wonderful. The ease in depositing and withdrawing is very distinguished.
Love the ease of use and the ease of implementation/integration within other websites and platforms to capture payment.

Pros

Cashfree is one of the best payment gateway supports multiple payment methods like debit card, credit card, internet Banking, upi payments etc. Clean user interface helps to make payments easily.
Overall, the experience after on-boarding has been wonderful. While we have not had to reach out to the account manager often, we have gotten the required support when we did.
Customer service is fantastic - the ease of communication with the team is great.

Cons

However, people also get blocked by PayPal without any warning and they can freeze and hold the money from that account that makes annoying things to the user.
Also, I do worry about storing my bank account information for a service like PayPal. They might be insured against fraud, but I still worry sometimes that my account information will be stolen.
This becomes a problem when you need money quickly. IPN and PayPal API are unstable, often messing up transactions, especially if they involve limited items and need verification as soon as possible.

Cons

Fraud detection puts genuine transactions in suspicious category.
Wost experience, managers & even head menagers are fraud.
Cost is really high when compared with other payment gateways. Especially the verification suite which literally killed the entire money of us.

clean and fast

Reviewed 3 years ago

While we have eliminated other problematic options, we have moved cashfree ahead in the list of payment gateways displayed on our website payment page. Exquisite experience so far with Cashfree.

Pros

Cashfree is clean, fast and fuss-free. Dashboard is clear and we can keep up our finger on the business pulse. Paypal etc are all integrated into it eliminating the need for multiple gateways. Support is an email away. We have had very few issues in the 3 years that we have been using it for our ecommerce. Thank you.

Cons

None

Cashfree

Verify customer UPI IDs and bank account details in real time

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Things that I like about Cashfree: Provide instant refund to customers. UPI autopay subscription. Setup UPI payment gateway on your website or mobile app. Share links with customers to collect payments. Avoid manual reconciliation process with Virtual UPI addresses. Get instant settlements to your bank account. Collect payments using UPI, wallets, netbanking, EMI and pay later options. Integration with PayPal helps collect payments from global customers. Split collected earnings with vendors for a fee.

Cons

Things that I like least about Cashfree: Be ready to pay for creating virtual accounts, virtual UPI ids and fees per transaction.
