Repayment

Your billing cycle is from the 1st of a month to the end of that month. All your transactions are consolidated in a single statement and your bill is generated the next day i.e. the 1st of the next month. You’ll therefore receive bills on the 1st of each month.
The bill due date is the 5th of every month.

If you don’t repay your bill by the 5th of a month, Freo Pay will temporarily suspend your transactions. Plus, you’ll be charged a late fee of Rs. 30 + GST of 18% per day of missed payment after the 5th. This is capped at Rs. 900 per billing cycle along with 18% GST on your total late fee amount. That’s why we encourage you to repay by the due date.

“You can pay within the app itself. Open the Freo Pay app.

If you’re paying your bill early, then on the home screen, under your photograph and available limit, you’ll see a box that declares the amount of money you’ve spent out of your Freo Pay limit. Click on Settle bill > Settlement. Under the Settle bill section, click ‘Pay’. Or, you can choose a custom amount, then click ‘Proceed to pay’.

If you’re paying once your bill is generated, then go to the home screen. Under your photograph and available limit, you’ll see a box that shows: ‘name_of_the_month’ statement is generated. Here, click on View > Settlement. Clear your bill amount.”

You’ll get charged a heavy late fee. Besides that, the Freo Pay collections team will get in touch with you to sort out your repayment. If you delay that as well, we’ll have to send you a legal notice. This is why we encourage you to not delay, and repay on time.

As you pay your dues back, your amount will get restored. So you don’t really recharge, but rather reset or restore your amount. That’s how you can continue using your Freo Pay over and over again.
“You don’t recharge your limit; you reset or restore it by paying for your expenses. You can do this in two ways:
  1. Pay your bill directly through the app itself
  2. If you’ve opted for WhatsApp notifications, we will send you a WhatsApp payment message with a link. This link will take you to a payment gateway through which you can reset your amount by repaying for your expenses.
