Ideacts, a company that has developed software for cybercafes in India has launched erupee platform. Erupee allows customers to shop online simply by using cash without having to credit/debit card details or net banking account details.
How erupee works
- Visit an erupee point (An erupee point is an outlet which partners with us to provide products and services offered by erupee. Besides selling cash vouchers for e-Commerce websites, an erupee point also provides services like Flight Ticket Booking, Mobile Recharge, DTH Recharge etc.)
- Purchase a cash voucher of a given e-Commerce website.
- Pay in cash.
- And the voucher will be sent to you via SMS and email within minutes.
Cash voucher powered by erupee can be generated for any value between Rs 100 to Rs 50,000. An interesting service – one would wonder what took Ideacts so much to launch this platform (given that MoL points are being used to buy Facebook credits in India and Zynga has launched its game cards in India etc).
erupee has partnered with Infibeam, redBus, Zapak+, rechargeitnow etc and the service allows one to purchase air/train/bus tickets also.
Aside, Ideacts has rebranded its flagship product, CLINCK desktop to iCafeManager and has presence in 17,390 cafes, serving 70,000 live terminals (amounting to 2.1 crore user per month).
What started as a passion turned into a business, but was shutdown later. But then, the team reunited and launched ideacts. Watch their amazing journey (Ideacts cofounder Rudrajeet shared the story at UnPluggd’ 1st edition).
