Ecwid now supports PayU India payment gateway

Good news for Indian merchants! Ecwid now supports PayU India, a popular Indian payment gateway that accepts credit card and debit card payments, various netbanking options and other payment methods.

Accepting payments online in Ecwid

Payments are an essential part of any online store — your credibility and your customers’ loyalty depends on the convenience and security of the checkout process in your online shop. Straightforward and easy-to-use payment options make clients happy, resulting in higher conversion rates and ultimately more repeat customers.

Ecwid currently has over 450,000 registered stores around the world with different target markets and payment processing workflows. To provide the merchants and their customers from all countries with simple and powerful checkout, Ecwid supports more than 40 built-in payment options, making everything from wire transfers to credit cards payments possible. Our list of supported payment methods grows to set the standard for merchant e-commerce requirements globally. Just recently, we added PayLeap — a payment gateway for US and Canada merchants. Today, we’re happy to announce that Ecwid now supports a popular Indian payment gateway: PayU India.
