People worry about making payment online due to a fear of money loss. They think that their money is not safe and suddenly it will go somewhere if their transaction fails. In today’s world where everything is going online, for every incident that happens there is a standard system. This system gives you belief that everything is going fine and you need not worry about things that are under that system.
When you buy a ticket from Ayojak ticketing page, you select ticket quantity and go to checkout page and fill details there. In these steps if your internet disconnects or you are unable to continue for next step, this is nothing to do with your money as you are in Ayojak application, not in payment gateway.
When you finish entering details, you click on “Proceed to Payment” button. This is the time when you leave Ayojak application and go to payment gateway page.
From here, you are redirected to payment gateway page.
When you reach on payment gateway page, you select payment method from options like credit card, debit card, net-banking or cash card and click on proceed to go to respective bank site.
For credit card option, you enter your credit card details in a screen similar to this.
After filling the info when you click on ‘Pay’, your transaction processes at bank’s end:
In this period don’t refresh or press back button as it will cancel the transaction. This could be the point when bank fails to update payment gateway successfully.
The above screen appears if your transaction is unsuccessful. Sometimes, in this case bank deducts money from your account and fails to update to payment gateway. Payment gateway takes it as unsuccessful transaction.
If your money is deducted from your account and payment gateway has not captured it. In such cases, normally you will get your money back into your account within a week automatically. You can also contact at your bank about this transaction and ask them to update your account statement.
Some cases are there when in mid of transaction you see blank page. This happens due to poor ‘Bank IT transaction infrastructure with payment gateway’ , hence the transaction takes longer than the normal time. This makes the link failure and ends up showing blank page.
In such cases, 1 in 1000 payments may get deducted by bank. But the user will always know money is deducted and can instruct bank to refund back.
Similarly if money comes to payment gateway, then Ayojak takes care of issuing a ticket. Or refunding as per event organizer’s cancellation policy. Ayojak also takes one step ahead to ensure if user’s money is stuck in payment gateway, we take care of fast processing.
Best Wishes from Ayojak. I take this opportunity to provide you a general update about last month’s happenings. It has been an interesting month and there are a lot of new learnings and insights for us a team. Thank you once again for your kind time.
