Recurring collections facilitate collections from customers, individuals, or businesses at pre-defined or regular intervals. These are typically called Mandates.

What are the use cases of Recurring Collections?

Some use cases of recurring collections are.

  • EMIs: Lenders collecting repayments against a loan/credit line
  • Premiums: Insurers or businesses collecting payments toward premium
  • Subscriptions: Platforms collecting regular payments towards services
  • Savings: Platforms facilitating savings from customers at regular intervals
  • Investments: Platforms facilitating investments into various assets

How Decentro Powers Recurring Collections?

Decentro powers recurring collections through 2 key modules.

  • ENACH: This is the NPCI-powered bank account-based mandate platform. The NACH stack is designed for larger ticket sizes and higher flexibility.
  • UPI Auto-pay: This is the NPCI-powered UPI-based platform. The UPI stack is designed for smaller ticket sizes and seamless registration.

ENACH

ENACH is a digital mandate platform built by NPCI on the NACH framework designed to handle recurring payments like EMIs, payables, premiums, etc.

ENACH has 2 phases.

  • Registration: this registers the mandate using the debit card or netbanking details of the customer
  • Execution: this debits the amount from the customer's bank account against which the mandate is registered.

This set of APIs will help you enable auto collections on configured frequency from your consumers.

Note: ENACH supports registration and presentation up to 10,00,000 INR across frequencies.

Note

Please note that not all commercial banks support API-based E-mandates. All the supported banks are available in the Supported Banks API. The platform can use this API to check if the customer's bank supports ENACH.
