Instamojo is known to help you sell and make money online in the easiest & quickest way possible. We have been consistently building tools & features like variants, discount code, “pay what you want” payment option, custom fields, PDF stamping, advanced analytics & many more nifty options to help you do just that keeping simplicity in mind.
But today we are releasing a new feature which isn’t about just selling and making money online. To give you some context, payments in this world just don’t happen through cash or cards. Often it happens in kind or barter too. Moving one step ahead in that direction, we are excited to give you “Social Pay”.
“Social Pay” is a new kind of payment system that doesn’t need your buyer to transact with their cards or online banking options. Your customers pay you with their social network clout i.e. they receive your offering once they share it with their friends, fans and followers on Twitter or Facebook.
So now instead of creating free offers, you could ask your customer to pay with a tweet or a Facebook post. Think about what it could mean — for every person who does that, you have an ever increasing audience & reach. You could go viral! It just takes one click to use Social Pay (yes we make things that simple) 🙂
Q. How to start using “Social Pay”?
Ans: While creating an offer, click the checkbox (like the screenshot below) — and that’s it.
Q. How will my customers see it?
Ans: Your customer will see like this in your offer checkout page (screenshot below):
1. They choose the tab (either ‘pay through twitter’ or ‘pay through facebook post’)2. Enter basic details.3. Edit the content of the tweet or post.4. Tweet or Post – Done.
Q. Is using “Social Pay” mandatory?
Ans: As always, we keep things flexible for you — so “social pay” is optional.
Protip: You can combine Social Pay with ‘Pay What You Want’ to give Social Pay as an alternative to monetary payments – so they can pay in kind or cash.
Do let us know what use-case would you like to explore with “Social Pay” option. We are excited to hear more from you and keep improving Instamojo. Give a shout-out at firstname.lastname@example.org
