At BharatPe, we build products for the merchants. We had received a number of requests from merchants to launch gold on our platform. We decided to partner with Safegold as gold purity and security is of utmost importance to us and to our merchants. We are already seeing great response and have sold 200 grams of gold on the day of the launch. We will be adding new features to this and aim to build digital gold as one of the key verticals in the near future. We are targeting selling 30 kg of gold in FY21.”
