Its now almost every webmaster dream to make a recharge website like paytm, mobikwik which provide mobile, dth and datacard recharge service. Since its a very profitable business so the recharge service provider are giving such services at very high cost. For example if you search in google “mobile recharge api“, “dth recharge api” or “data card recharge api” then you will find some website which offer you recharge api service. But when you ask them pricing for the recharge api then you will shock to hear the cost as some website will tell Rs.50,000 one time setup fee, Rs.25,000 one time setup and some might say as low as Rs.5,000 one time setup fee. Really all these companies are looting to Indian people. But now i will tell you a new website which offering their mobile recharge api, dth recharge api and datacard recharge api cheap at just Rs.1,000 only. Yes! you hear right..its just Rs.1,000 only that have to paid in advance per year.
Now some of people might not known about the word “RECHARGE API“. I will explain you the meaning of this word in simple way.
A recharge api is just a simple http url like http://google.com but in this case its lenght is little longer. When you buy recharge api from some website then they will give you a HTTP LINK which looks like:
Now you have to integrate such recharge api in your website or application. Its not a difficult task to integrate. You can also hire some webmaster to do the same on behalf of you. These recharge api can also be directly enter in web browser if you want to test the recharge api just like you visit a website normally.
Now coming to the point, in order to make your own recharge website like paytm, mobikwik, etc. you need to buy a recharge api. I would suggest you to start with low budget recharge api providers like jolo.in
They will give you mobile,dth,datacard recharge api at just Rs.1,000 annual basis. Their commission rates are also good to be get started.
Second thing you need to make a website like paytm, mobikwik is the payment gateway. This is the part where most of the people dream ends here because most of the payment gateway provider in India offering their credit card, debit card and netbanking service at very high cost and hence high volume of investment is required to buy a payment gateway. But in todays date, CCAVENUE is giving its payment gateway free of cost. you can check the pricing here:
Overall, i would suggest buy any payment gateway which offers lowest transaction rate regardless of all the features you got. For example, use only debit card payment gateway from ccavenue as they charge only 1.25% per transaction. So in this way you can start a website like paytm, mobikwik, etc.
Good Luck for your recharge website..and if you have developed your recharge website by using jolo.in and ccavenue then let me know how it works and also share your website name with us.
