This means that companies will be able to offer a 'pay cash after/before delivery' payment option to customers who do not want to use their credit or debit cards over the phone. Following the tie-up KooKoo will provide the telephony interface, while Gharpay will take care of the logistics for collecting payments. How It Works Kookoo said that in order to integrate the cash collection on IVR, service providers will need to sign-up with Gharpay to get their credentials, following which KooKoo will offer a pay tag which has to be filled with the XML that Gharpay expects.
