What inspired you to create PayKun?
We always wanted to do our own business, so we started with freelancing IT projects. We thought of launching our own product which required a payment gateway. But none of the companies was ready to approve our merchant account as we were not a registered company then and didn’t have any valid business documents. That’s when it struck us that there is a need for simplified online payment solution for entrepreneurs. After this, we did a lot of research as nobody from us was from finance background. It nearly took six months for us to take the first step. We started developing with a small team and it took almost 1.5 years to complete the development of PayKun. Meanwhile, we also registered our business on May 31, 2018. On August 15, 2018, we launched PayKun. Since then we have never looked back. We are working hard continuously, to become the best payment gateway service provider of India.
What do you define as achievements for PayKun?
If we talk about achievements in terms of awards or trophies, we didn’t receive any achievements but coming from Tier-3 cities like Bhavnagar and creating a giant system like payment gateway with a very small team without any Fintech sector knowledge we have achieved a lot that can’t be explained in words.
Apart from this, we were recognized in Startup India for our initiative towards promoting digital payments in India.
