Testimonial

Everyday we receive 2000+ donations against hundreds of our fundraisers. Previously there was manual work involved in compilations and then the funds were released via corporate net banking. This was error prone and tedious.

Marketplace Settlement helped us move away from Excel files and human intervention is now minimal in the payout process. All receipts are automatically tagged to the correct vendor and settlements are completely automated. It is simple to use and the money flow is hassle-free.

FAQ

It is strongly recommended to integrate Cashfree payment gateway for collections along with Marketplace Settlements. This ensures payments are assigned to vendors automatically and settled faster. It is also easier to handle refunds. However, vendor settlements can be carried out for transactions captured through any other medium like cash on delivery or an alternate payment provider.
All the payments completed via Cashfree payment gateway on your webstore will be available for disbursal via Cashfree's nodal account. These transactions need to be assigned to a vendor's ledger - either manually or via the API. As you add transactions on Shopify, Magento or another platform, these will get assigned to your vendors and payment will be settled automatically.
To split payments you can choose to have a pre-defined percentage for a vendor. It is also possible to specify the vendor commission as a percentage or fixed sum while adding a transaction and assigning it to a vendor.
Refunds can be managed by adjusting the vendor ledger balance. This will ensure the refund amount is adjusted from subsequent vendor settlements.

At the time of adding a transaction, you can assign the appropriate percentage of commission or set numeric commission amount. You can also add additional vendors to an existing transaction.
Yes. Just like vendors can be attached to a transaction, vendors can also be removed from an existing transaction. It is also possible to transfer the ledger balance of one vendor to another vendor.
Yes, this is possible by modifying your account preferences. By default, pending vendor balances get settled automatically daily as per the regular settlement schedule. It is possible to disable automatic settlements and manaually make a settlement request for a particular vendor by mentioning the unique vendor id against the transfer amount. Cashfree checks for available vendor balance and if it's sufficient, we trigger the transfer to the recipients bank account. This process is synchronous i.e. you will receive the transfer status in the same API call. List of settlements can be retrieved here.
