B2B Smart Collect
Generate virtual accounts on demand and accept payments via NEFT, RTGS and IMPS. Get notified for each incoming payment and automate the tedious reconciliation process.
Using B2B Smart Collect, you can generate virtual accounts on demand and accept payments via NEFT, RTGS and IMPS. Smart Collect enables you to create virtual accounts tagged to individual customers and share the account number and IFSC details. Customers can transfer funds (via NEFT, RTGS and IMPS) to these virtual accounts that are directly linked to your bank accounts.
Since a new account can be created for each customer, you can easily track payments made by them. B2B notifies you of payment made to any of your accounts and also handles the complexity of reconciling these payments on your behalf.
Here are some examples of how Smart Collect can be leveraged.
- One Time Payment
If you need to accept a single, large payment from a customer, preferably via NEFT, RTGS or IMPS, you can create a virtual account using Smart Collect for them and share the generated account number and IFSC. When the customer makes the payment to this account, you get notified by B2B and can then close the account.
- Regular Payments
If you need to send a customer regular invoices for payments of large volume, you can create a virtual account using Smart Collect for them and share the details. The customer can add this account as a beneficiary on their preferred banking portal and make regular payments to it whenever required. B2B notifies you every time a payment is made towards the account, thus simplifying the reconciliation process.
- Event-Based Payments
If you need to accept several payments from multiple sources, for a range of possible campaigns or events, you can use Smart Collect to create a virtual account for each campaign and share details accordingly. For every payment made towards any of these accounts, B2B notifies you of the account used, thus eliminating the need to identify which campaign the payment was made for.
However, with Smart Collect you can create a unique bank account number for each customer, and automatically tag the payments made to each account with the customer it was created for. This greatly simplifies the reconciliation process.
Using Smart Collect thus entails a reduction in administration cost, as it can be used to identify remitters automatically and not depend on the bank reference details provided in the payment reference field.
