How ZestMoney integrated with Setu BBPS BillCollect

ZestMoney wanted to expand their EMI collection options—to enable their customers to repay them with ease. What better way, than to get listed on every popular UPI application, via a BBPS integration.

BBPS or Bharat Bill Payment System is an NPCI-powered interoperable payment network. It connects businesses who need recurring payments—like ZestMoney—to their customers via third-party applications like PhonePe, GPay, PayTm etc.

The challenge—BBPS on-boarding can eat up months

Getting on-boarded on BBPS is a long, complicated affair. Working with incumbent financial institutions are a pain for every startup—due to messy documentation, poor technical support and lengthy processes.

Our solution

ZestMoney used Setu BillCollect APIs and settlement services to go live on BBPS in under 3 weeks.

ZestMoney wanted to on-board on BBPS quickly, without multiple integrations with different banks. Setu BillCollect provides the fastest and easiest API integration for on-boarding companies as billers on the BBPS network. Meanwhile, also making them discoverable across all BBPS-enabled UPI applications.

ZestMoney’s customers can now pay their EMIs from 400+ UPI apps and 3.5 million offline touch points.

“Integrating on BBPS through Setu was very smooth and their team was prompt in answering all our questions. The widespread reach of the BBPS network offers great convenience and functionality to an end customer. Now, they can pay us directly from any of their favourite UPI apps.”
