No one knows as to what will happen with regards to the COVID-19 situation, but there are certain things that are predictable. Most cities have and will practice social distancing which includes partial or complete cessation of local commercial activity.
This means that you will have to choose measures that are flexible and serve your business irrespective of whether you are able to operate from your physical store or not. Moving online could help you carry on your “business as usual” and will continue being useful even after the end of this pandemic.
Making Everything Easier For You!
Building an online store is a major task. However, with e-commerce platforms such as Shopify, it is easy to get up and running with, providing your customers with a seamless shopping experience similar to what they get from large online retailers. However, to provide a seamless checkout experience to your customers, you would also require a payment solution provider that is highly secure and understands the needs of your business.
We are glad to share that PayU has partnered with Shopify to help businesses move online and start accepting payments, easily and quickly! This solution can help you open an alternative revenue stream for your business by reaching out to new and existing customers online.
With PayU, you can accept payments on your Shopify store via UPI, Credit/Debit Card, Net banking, Paytm, Google Pay, PhonePe, Wallets, and more. We are also offering some discounted rates on transactions to Shopify merchants! (Know more about this and other offers in our benefits section below.)
Many of our features are specially built for businesses like:
- Non-profit organizations/Donations
- Financial & Insurance Services

Selling online is very different from selling offline. While selling online, you’ll have to click photos of your products, write content, create videos, etc. Luckily, you get all these and more features when you get started with us.
